Question for Johnny P or anyone else that could help me

2 posts in this topic


I'm coming up there either Sat or Sun with 3 of my cousins (10, 11, 13) and me and my father so we will have 5 in the boat. I have only launched out of the river before, so that is probably where I will go again, where would you suggest to go for crappies? I have heard some talk of going north, but also some talk about in front of westwinds.

We are planning on getting there early to try and beat some of the people out of the launch, what is your experience with crappies biting right away in the morning, like 6:30-7:00.

I'm not looking for any of your secret spots, just something to get me started so I can make sure my cousins can catch some fish and have a good day on the water.

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
