Washington Crappies

14 posts in this topic

A buddy and myself were planning on going to to washington for some c&r crappies tommorrow and friday. And since we are not from around here have no clue were to start, so any pointers would be great. I am assuming since it has been so warm they are starting to stage but any help would be great. feel free to shoot me an email, jwinter2@gac.edu thanks Jonah

There are 2 - 50 boat crappie contests out there this weekend. (one on Sat and the other on Sun) I imagine you'll see several boats out there prefishing. I haven't been doing too well for the bigger crappies there yet. This nice weather may bring them up at any time.

Jonah,

Some good areas to start probing around is the W side of The Narrows, the shoreline E of Squirrel's Nest Point, the entire E shore of Baker's Bay, out in front of the Boy Scout Camp in the NE corner, and the S portion of Mud Bay.

Exude Micro Shad and Berkley Power Minnows on a small jig work very well this time of year.

TO sent you to some pretty good areas. I would work depths from 7-13 fow.

that was my problem last time out on washington, couldnt control a 14 foot aluminum, way too windy. what is it about this area that the wind has to blow 20mph 6 days out of the week. Did mark a lot of fish by the NE end landing, but didnt get any takers.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
