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.

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.
