Crappies are few and far to come by but a nice little sunfish lake would be Clear Lake at Glen, Minnesota. Take 47 north to Malmo on the Northeast corner of Mille Lacs and drive 6 miles further on 47. Buy your bait at Malmo though. DO NOT EVER BUY BAIT AT THE GLEN STORE!

There is public access to Clear Lake on the East side of the lake.

Clear Lake is not known for big crappies but you can get some decent size sunnies and perch and otehr pan fish. I am not saying there aren't any crappies of course, just that they are few and far between.

Good Luck! Hope you and your kids have a nice time!

UncleKes - I was just wondering why you said "never buy bait at the Glen Store". Not trying to start anything with you just curious why you would say that. To be honest with you, I spent my last $$ ever at the bait shop/gas station whatever store on the east side of 47 - I HATE when you buy a dozen minnows and they count every single minnow!

Feet Down: I had a long converstaion with sdomeone in the forum about 2 months back on this very subject. The Glen Store has a very Very VEWRY limited amount of bait. Mostly small suckers and crappie minnows and a few crawlers thrown in for good measure. They actually DO count every last minnow that goes into the bucket there. See3 the forum marked CLEAR LAKE if you want more information. Botht he gas staion general store and the store accross the street next tot he restaurant carry a full line of fresh bait. I meant no disparagement against the Glen strore in my last post. Only that the bait is very limited.

The owner is new and he has not invested in bait tanks and filters and pumps and the like to keep a full oline of bait. I suspect that he is more interested in pumping gas and selling groceries and liquor than he is in the odd crawler or minnow.

We all have to make a living as best we can and my impression is that until bait starts to pay off better for him he won't invest in the equipment or the stock.

      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell

      went out tonight and found between 24 to 28 inches of ice away from the current areas.    The river is now poking into shoe about 100 yards.   Don

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner
