Crappie Fishing

7 posts in this topic

I'm from out of town and will be staying in Brainerd for the next 2 weeks.

I love to fish, and unfortunately only get out when I find someone else with a boat. I'd love to tag along if anyone has room for an afternoon or evening bite.

email me if you have room (weekdays only): golden_walleye@yahoo.com

next week should bring some active panfish into the shallows... a very good time to fish from shore. If someone brings you in the boat you may be right next to shore anyways.

Goldenwalleye,

You can have some great shore fishing at the Bar harbor docks, and also around the bridge on the Margaret channel (although I see they have tried to say some of it is private.)

How are they coming on Pelican? Are they up shallow yet?

If anyone know's of other areas from Shore for a crappie bite, let me know. I am really looking for fun, and I don't think the hotel would like me cleaning fish in the room. So C&R only.

The fish are around some of the Pelican areas too I believe.

Pelican was fairly hot last week off the docks. Has slowed down quite a bit. They got hit pretty hard though. Lots of males and sunnies.

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
