Crappie spot

5 posts in this topic

Looking for any tips on locating some crappies on the chain. I see boats anchored at the river channel openings, but have not seen anything pulled in yet. We just got the camper set up on Schneider for the summer, so we are rookies to the chain.

sometimes the points/dropoffs on cedar island are worth a shot usaully around dusk, i know that it puts out a lot of crappies in winter, haven't fished it in summer for a while though.

Watch you locator this time of year. They should be bunched up near weeds or river channel.

The wife and I were able to locate some crappies on the river channel in 2 feet of water. We kept enough for a meal and released a quite of few more. We also pulled a couple channel cats out of 2 feet of water. I have never caught cats that shallow or close to shore before.

      This ice season  has been in the books on the st croix for about a week now. I ended my year out there with a 50" sturgeon.

      I have been busy with Work ... went down to check it out North access this morning.  Definitely good enough to walk out.  a tall guy walked a big sled right out.  was also a clam 2 seater pull over out on the ice.  The wind however is blowing very cold!  I do not have a sled for walking out ... so hoping for ATV ice soon!  I went searching at Princeton Wallmart if they had any leftover sleds, no go.  Will have to pick one up this week.   Bob
