Crappie Keith.

Do you have a job or are you a professional crappie fisherman.? Do you have a magazine?

Were you just born last month because I have never seen you here before and there can't be to many crappies left in the lakes up there that don't have a hole in there mouth. And suddenly you have taken over the local scene on here.

How many fish can you eat in one week.? Do you like tartar sauce.? So many questions. So much fishing to do.

Thanks. grin.gif

Siss has got some dandy eyes in her.

The gills are not bad either.

Too bad the creek weeded over going into 10.The 70's were awesome for fishing.

10 had some of the nicest p'seeds you ever saw.

Hey Crappie Todd

here's a taste of how the winter went.

My name, Crappie Todd came from a Guy named, Dave Gentz. I date it back in the about 1985. It was about the time Dave became popular with Babe winkleman. No longer a team they used to fish Gun lake. Most people know Dave, his name is all over the state in the winter time. Also I fished Lake Hattie at Tuck A way resort and was in the beginning and rapid end to a magazine named "pan Anglers news.... I still have copies of it. I wrote beiefly.

I fish crappies 85 % of the time and gills 14 % and snag a walleye accidentally now and then @ 1%.

I eat a few and stronly believe in catch and release because the lake I am on...... I have been blamed for its down fall. So, I have an attitude towards the DNR thinking I am one man lake ruining crew.

Walleys are my weakness.... I posted looking for Bull heads. You must have seen it.

No one responded. I deleted it.

Mabey we will bump in to each other some time.

CK is the best thing to happen in years to this site....there were many times people used to ask questions about the area and did not receive any answers from anybody local....We used to catch nice bullies on Portage just east of Gun..

I forgot ..

The golf coarse is called Mn.National.

I'll be guiding for them once they fill up their townhome communitiy.

It's going to be THE place to golf around this area very soon.

Wayne is in the middle of his 6 year plan.

He sure has done a lot of stuff over there to make a world class place.

Back to fishing.

Going out in the predawn time to Round then after daybreak to Sqaug until 11.Then RJ Fritz,MeanGene O. and my boss plus Mallard to my monster gill holefor a noon run.Then back to those eyes at dusk to 11 pm.

Boy ,she's gonna be a long day.

I'm pre fishing the gill hole in 2 hours to make darn sure the gills are in.10-12" monsters,ya baby!

I'll have some pics and maybe some video.

I'm thinkin RJ will shoot for his show Out & About on WCCO.

Even if them boys bag it on me ,I'll be rearin & releasing.

I was thinking the same thing.

There are those that love the pics I'll post up or possibly glean some trick or method I'm using.

Others assume I'm taking all of these fish home to eat

and they want it to be known that I should stop.

I've seen the whole gammet of responses.

I'm just a humble fisherman ,promoting fishing.

It is and always has been my goal to get guys excited about fishing.

Teaching others to fish or to become better at what I call my main passion in life.

If you want to see something really cool there is this 8 year old kid that comes from a broken home that I've helped to get into fishing and now he's tying his own jigs.

It's so cool to run into him & hear his stories of fishing .

He gets so pumped.

I believe that's why God put us earth to help & uplift others.

On the other hand if you want to go out fishing in a lake that's producing I'll share it with you.

I spend near 200 days a year on the water & or ice just to keep the pulse of the fish.What I do ,I could get 300$ a day in guide fees ,but for the most part it's all free.

I've made a ton of friendships this last year doing this & I'll continue to have a blast rearing.

So in conclusion being apart of a forum in FM is important to me.

Helping others grow,promoting our industry and reaveling in what mother nature has to offer all of us!

I see nothing wrong with these pics. I have seen hundreds just like them posted all over this forum.

Can you please elaborate about what portion of forum policy this violates? I just reread the policy and find nothing wrong with them.

it might be the pics that have some fish laying on the ice? I think I've read something about that in the forum pic rules but cant remember.

You'll hear no bashing from me! keep up the good work.

What a strange frickin' post. CT - do you have a point to make here?


Actully I guess I can say Yes to that. Your on every posting for the area there with about the same pics. You have so many pics I have trouble looking at the posts because I have dial up and can't even use the forum to simply look at it. Down load time might as well be nap time.

It great you have pics of you with your fish. But whats your point posting em every single available forum there.

If you continue to post where I can't use the forum to look at other responses in words, than I will just shut up and go away.

Its not about anything more than that.

What ever happened to asking nicely?

I have dial up as well and have no problem looking at the pics.

If you can't read any forums that contain pictures then are you going to ask eveyone who posts pics to stop so that you can read all the forums easier?

Also if you check out the Mille Lacs forum at all there is a thread there titles Mille Lacs Pictures. There are pictures of perch sitting on a cutting board next to a filet knife. If those pics are ok then I am sure these will be just fine.

Keep on keepin' on CK.

We're looking for fish pictures in good taste that encourage selective harvest principles so the dead fish rule is as follows: Fish pictures must be in the natural environment where the fish is caught that do not look frozen, stiff, bloodied or look like they were just poured out of a bucket and no stringer or fish in a bucket pics. Fish Mount and live release tournament pictures are ok as well. All other dead fish pictures are not allowed.

      Nice video. Thank you @papadarv NOTE:We will be updating the forums and all videos uploaded here will go straight to a player that folks can just click and watch instead of downloading and watching.

      Out Saturday afternoon doing some sight fishing with my camera on one of Chisago County lakes. Water was a bit dirty and with 26 inches of ice camera clarity was a bit lacking. Did get some nice video of the afternoon. Battery augers failed after a couple of holes so went with the Eskimo gas. Lots of fish above the weeds in 10 FOW.  EazyCam site fishingHB.mp4

      Weather forecast looks to be consistent starting Wednesday with average temps in the  mid 20's. Consistency typically good.  Right now anglers are working fish hard and putting fish in the pail. Electronics are playing a huge roll as some walleyes suspended as far as 10 feet below the ice. Most resorts are out in 31' with some in a touch shallower. More saugers in deep mud with walleyes shallower. Reefs to the west also productive with a few perch being pulled in as well. Rattle and flutter action spoons doing well. Gold, pink, and other glow colors best.  Pike already active in shallow water.  Auger extension needed if fishing on your own with 3+ feet of ice in most areas.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail. Ice houses allowed to be left on lake through March 31st, walleyes open through April 14, pike all year.   Rainy River pushing out some bigger walleyes in the morning/evening with an occasional sturgeon.  Local fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.   The NW Angle continues to put nice fish in the bucket. Walleyes and saugers in good numbers.  20-24' early and late, 26-30' during day.  In Ontario waters, crappies in deeper holes of 28-32' on light tackle set ups. Mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper, catch fish and move on.  Walleyes all over!  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.

      Hi all hope to make it this Saturday. Depending on the snow coming we should be able to drive on correct?
    • Hoey
      This past weekend, only two were caught by our group of three fishermen and they were small, in the 10" range.  
    • Hoey
      Why not go out of Swift?  I nothing about the Warroad access, sorry.  
    • Hoey
      OK - we made it back!!!  Every trip is different with it's own potential perils.   I finally got into my house on Friday around 11am.  My guests were rookies, so i spent time with each of them, getting setup, heaters started, Vexilars set, houses banked, lines prep'd and set, bait, etc...  The bite was somewhat slow and many small ones.  The day got better 3 to 430pm.  Ended up with 6 nice eyes (19, 18x3, 17x2), 13 jumbos (most ever for a day), 12 small sauger which we ate for dinner.   On Saturday we headed up to the south shore of the Angle, longer ride, so again did not get started too early.  Ended up with our 6 eyes for our limit, these ranged from 15 to 16 inches and a 4-pack of sauger.  Again the bite seemed to pickup at 3 or so and was done by 430pm.   Ice as 3 foot or so.  Snow depth varied a lot, depending on the condition of the ice.  Smooth areas were blown off to crusty 6 inches or so.  Rough ice surely held a lot of snow.   The drive back on Sunday was somewhat tough from Baudette to Emily, winter storm warning.  Slow go, low visibility, and icy roads, sometimes down to 15 mph.   Next scheduled trip is with my wife, son, and three of his Gopher swim teammates for spring break in three weeks.

      Those were caught from a shallow lake (17’) in 9 feet of water at the bottom of the first shoreline break. I was using a UV buckshot and minnow head since the water was murky. The crappie is still swimming the walleye not so much. I didn’t get the exact location. Sorry

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge

      On the Bayfield side of the bay, the target depth is typically 10 to 40 ft. The basswood island area is where they go after lakers. There’s a plowed road that goes out there. As of last week the ice was about 20 inches in that area, might be thicker now. Check out the Bayfield webcam, you can see what kind of activity is going on.
