Has anyone been fishing for crappies on BM and having any luck? HTB

I have fished Big Marine on the opener for the past 5 years. I usually go on the west shore, near the Disabled Veterans Rest Camp (Nice place to launch if you are a vet, only a 5.00 launch fee and you can park right at the launch.) Work south along the shore to the channel into the bay. I can usually limit on crappies all over the 1 lb size.

Patriot, do you mean from the Vets. to just past Shady Birch Resort? I've never tried that area, and I grew up on that lake back in the day, but we did pick up a few by the GS camp today but had more bites from snot rockets and grass carp. HTB

Thats the one. I start out at the tip of the hook, the point just north and east of the camp. Work back through that little cove and then south along past the camp, run about 100 yds or less from shore. You'll see more action in the cabbage between the Vets Camp and the old Shady Birch area.

What are the crappies biting on? I might head out to Big Marine this weekend.

Hit BM this morning. Didn't make it down to the areas you both were talking about, but fished the west edge on the northern tip of the lake and didn't catch anything but a weenie smallmouth. Fished Fuzzy Grubs, Gypsie Tails & Mepps Spinners tipped with minnows.

      Who wants to fish in the dark, best thing about Vermilion is the ability to catch walleyes during bankers hours.  I would recommend looking into one of the private rentals on the lake (VRBO, etc.), most will have a private dock and offer more privacy.

      Hey Bob,   We are coming up this weekend, fishing for the entire day on Saturday the 21st.  Osakis has been on my radar as have a few of the chain lakes, however with it being so long since I have fished in the area, I just wanted to see if there were any other suggestions for a decent multi-species lake or at least one with a chance for having a respectable crappie - walleye combo.   We also have been looking into Mary, Ida, Irene and Oscar.
