This one got it done for me on Saturday. Eight crappies between 12 and 14 inches from a metro lake in less than an hour. Unfortunately couldn't find them on Sunday.

1/4 oz mimic minnow and a large spinner. Upsized to get away from constant small fish. I was amazed when a lure this size worked.

Is this a Betts?? I like plastics having this shaped

tail. I use Cubby-Mites ALOT, and plain or tipped with a

Power-Bait nibbler, will easily out fish some one with

hook and minnow...

Trolling or casting with these spinner baits?

Would trolling work or do they go deep enough to catch weeds.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
