Nest Lake Action

Recommended Posts

5crazykids

Anybody hearing anything about Nest? I've been hitting it pretty hard and pulled in a 23" and 25" last Saturday, but hardly anything since. I noticed a cluster of 10 houses off the NE side of the big island -- must be trying to hit the craps. I've heard of a number of bigger eyes caught, but no quantity. Anyone hear anything else?

I have heard the same thing. I fish nest quite a bit and have only caught fish in the 20+ in. range, no eaters. From what I hear the crappies are very small and very inconsistant. I plan on getting out more after the weekend.

I have been out to the big island on Nest and nothing worth while out there. Since that crappie kill off this summer it hasnt been the same. The biggest I caught was 9" out there and only 2 out of about 10 of them where that big. The rest were around 6". Nothing to brag about.

I would like to find some kind of consistant walleye action out there. Seems like every winter I look for that and never find it! confused.gif

Yes I did know about the crappie die off. My dad lives on the lake and told me he pick up between 75-100 dead crappies last summer. You are probally right about them being so inconsistant.

that is odd... i too saw the white shores of dead crappies and they were all small ones floating......you would think the big ones are out there...and it is great new to hear there are small ones too and plentiful (Keep that in mind)

Jim I heard it was some bacteria that effected certain class of Crappies due to the hot weather last summer.

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
