Crappies

4 posts in this topic

Pretty nice day out so we had folks that headed to Upper Red today and they found the crappies to be biting today. Limits were reeled in this morning, and had another group that got into them this afternoon (between 1 and 2, then a slow down until 3 when they finished their limits), and heard from some other guests around 8pm who were also finishing off their limits. Best fishing for crappies today has been in 4-5 feet of water, slip bobber fishing with a jig tipped with a shiner. Pretty encouraging day!

Fished South shore rocks today west of Morts and had a limit real quick. 5', plain hook & minnow did the trick. Got quite a few eyes also pullin' #5 shad rap on the outside edges of the rocks 8' to 10'. A very good day to be on the pond. I bet the guys who fished the east shore got a hair damp this afternoon wink.gif.

later,

I was up on the big lake last week/weekend and we did really good on the crappies and the walleyes. Our best luck on the crappies was with a jig and bobber tipped with a minnow on any little hump you could find. We were east of Rogers just go until you find a hump and if you pull something off of it stay if not move to find another hump. Once we found a hump holding fish we tied down on it and pulled the crappies in one after another. Good size on all of them. It was a blast. We were sitting in about 4 ft of water.

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely are that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
