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.

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.

      What day is that on

      Excellent question. In the beginning of the day it was out away from everything and everyone. Visibility was low so I chose to stay within sight of others in case of problems, but certainly far away. Found a group of structure points that we were extremely happy about. Ranged from 16ft to 33ft on navionics. Morris point-cyrus area.   Fished that entire zone we had found, which is probably 1.5miles x 1.5miles give or take. Fished inside it with varying depths, fished the edges, fished the curves, then when it started to rain we set up the house and fished about 15yds off of everything in 30ft. Caught 5. Biggest was 10in.   The slush is making it difficult to manuever, I have tracks and am concerned of getting that stuck.    Unsure what happened over night with the weather now. Today we may need to stick to the old resort trails and work the road areas, plenty of vacated real estate out there...    Chains, tracks, or tires. With all this slushy mess... It's a hard choice and everything is a limitation.   Plan to try and work 18ft and out.... If you see a group of guys doing summersaults and bouncing around like they have welding sparks in their pants, you'll know that's me and we found some activity.
