as most people get. not a lot of crappies out there and even less of any size. panfish in general seem to be small out there. the only thing i do out there is tip up for pike if i dont have much time since it is close.

Bruiser,

Keep us posted on how you do - good or bad. I've see considerably more people on that lake this year than in years past. I'm hoping to get out there on Sunday.

I haven't been out there for a few years, but I always caught them in and around the deep hole. 32 to 38 feet. Typically it's an evening bite.

Good Luck

Hey Bruiser sounds like we need to find you a job, you have way to much time on your hands!!you would think with that new son of yours you would be way to busy to be scouting lakes. But keep looking, I will come down in FEB. for a few days and fish with you. Will bring both of my Vex'S tongue.gif

We walked out on the west end of the lake - towards the middle. We were just past the little point on the northwest side of the lake in 28 feet of water. No gills were bigger than 7 inches, but it was pretty much non stop.

bruiser if you dont mind a short drive from the grove, head out to bald eagle or white bear for some crappies. bring minnows and fish them whole on plain hooks or use the heads on smaller jigging spoons.

I have fished Powers many times. Some luck with crappies in the deep hole on the lake. They are always suspended. Bring your vex. Also caught some nice size pike closer to 19 in 12-16 feet of water. I bring the kids there in the winter to just catch a bunch of fish. Non-stop action with little perch and a good size pike thrown in every now and then. Keeps them busy and wanting to come back.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁
