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.

      Ha!  Me too!  My father bought that last winter and was first voyage on ice. First ice on Leech was rough and those side by sides don't absorb all that well. . Still a good time.

      For holiday gift ideas, consider a locally made gift created from trees harvested in Minnesota. Wooden toys, handcrafts and keepsakes are a great green gift option. Wood is a renewable resource that is natural, nontoxic and eco-friendly.   “Wood products are great green gifts for both kids and adults,” said Kristen Bergstrand, DNR utilization and marketing program coordinator. “Uniquely hand-crafted and individually customized wooden gifts are a wonderful option for a person who has everything.” Wooden blocks, rocking chairs or horses, puzzles, rattles, picture frames and artisan bowls or wood crafts are unique items that are often passed down to future generations as family mementos. Thousands of items are made from wood harvested in Minnesota forests. About 30 percent of the state’s wood fiber comes from state forest lands. The Minnesota forest products industry brings $16.1 billion to local economies. The industry creates jobs and brings financial support to small and large manufacturing and retail businesses across the state. Making products from trees often requires less processing and energy than plastic or other products. Wood is also renewable and reusable. Most wood products can be recycled and wood waste can be converted into green energy as biomass. Well-managed forests grow back into a forest after harvesting. And buying wood products also helps the environment. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that causes global climate change, and store carbon in their wood. Locally made products from trees harvested in Minnesota use less fossil fuel for transportation than imported goods. Visit the DNR wood products webpage to learn more about the benefits of buying and using wood products. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
