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.

      I change mine every year. Probably could get by longer then that, but I like to do it every year.

      Joe The DNR guy has a point.  There is a distinction between taxing the general population, and charging a fee (call it a tax if you want to) that only hits the folks that use the service.       So trout stamp money is used to provide trout fishing opportunities.   The trout stamp or fishing license isn't a tax since you choose to pay it in order to engage in the activity that the money provides.       They have a certain amount of money to spend to provide or enhance trout fishing opportunities.   Planting lake trout in a lake that already gets stream trout might not be a good use of that money.

      How often do you change out braided lines on your ice reels? Finally changed my out, not sure how long it has been on the reel or if needed to change it.
