Are the crappies and sunnies still in shallow?

6 posts in this topic

Question for you guys...are the crappies and sunnies still in shallow water? How shallow should I be looking? Live bait? I think while everyones looking for those walleyes I might hit Atkin Lake on Saturday to see if I can find some crappies or sunnies. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I've been a live bait fisherman for 30 years and the thought of casting our a lure like that and actually catching something amazes me. I'll have to give it a try. Have you done any fishing on Atkin Lake? Just wondering if there biting there. Thanks for all your info.

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
