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.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
