Faribault Area Crappie PLEA

6 posts in this topic

This is a very friendly plea. I know that everyone will be out trekking after "old marble eyes" this weekend, but my dad and I are looking to hit on a few "paper mouths" thats right Crappies. That is when we have our best times together. My plea is that I have NEVER fished in the Faribault area could someone point me to where my dad and I could lauch and tie into a few Crappies? If you are not comfortable posting it here my email is TKICZULA@COMCAST (Contact Us Please) NET. I would appreciate anything that could help my dad and I find a little time together that brought us back to happier less stressful days.

Forever grateful,

TIMBOW

P.S. I would be willing to trade for information as well. I hail from RED WING and have spent the last 4 years fishing the Duluth Area in college.

Your more likely to catch hordes of tiny White Bass and fat Bullheads now that the water temps are warm out at KingMill.

Good luck!

Try Mazaska. Thers a point north of the Hwy 21 boat launch, follow that shorline to the north along the break. Check out the DNR lake maps if yiou don't have a GPS.

Emily Lake just east of St. Peter (I know it's a little way from Faribo) has great crappie action. If you want to know my killer spot, let me know and I will email it to you.

I would love to know if you are offering still. My wife is from St. Peter and we are down here often. Thanks for the help everyone.

      1-18-17 Fishing Report. The fishing on LOTW remains fairly consistent in the last week with several Walleyes and Saugers in the 12.5-16 inch range being brought up the holes mixed in with a few larger sized perch,pout and tullibees in the 30-33 feet of water range. Meanwhile,in the 16-20 feet of water range the bite remains fairly steady with both smaller and keeper sized walleye and saugers being caught. The bite in both depths seems to not really pick up until around 10 am most days and seems to almost slow down around 4 pm. Live fat heads have been the bait of choice using a plain red hook or a glow in the dark pink or gold gem-n-eye on a dead stick,jigging a minnow has been effective as well using clam jigs or a demon jigging spoon or charmer with glow in the dark pink,green or hammer gold being the colors of choice. Heading into the weekend with the warmer weather continuing to move in we remind you to please,check with a resort,outfitter or bait shop before venturing out on the big lake as the ice conditions may change daily. We hope to see everyone on beautiful Lake of the Woods very soon!

      Wondering if anyone has been out on Christmas yet this year. Thinking about going this weekend and live a ways away. I know it is one of the later lakes to freeze up. Thanks in advance.

      It sounds like there definitely can be a worthwhile night bite.  The type of structure seems to dictate how good it can be. "Smaller" humps, or structure by itself seems to produce better then the breaklines along the numerous flats.  It seems "smaller" structure topping out 10 to 15 feet surrounded be deeper water is best.   Good luck, and report back.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.
