Daytime Crappie Bite?

Recommended Posts

FishyScent

From looking at some of the posts it looks like there is somewhat of a daytime bite on the river. Is this correct? or would the lowlight periods be best to try? How about after dark?

Thanks for the info guys!

One more thing. How many lines can a minnesota resident use on the river in the winter.

Thanks Again

All the times I have caught crappies have been in the daytime only. I haven't tried anytime after that so I can't tell you if at night time the bite is also on. good luck out there

The times I've found the crappie biting have mostly been when there is a good amount of daylight. However two weeks ago I was held up from getting out, didn't make it out until almost 4. I decided to sit out for a bit even though it was pretty dead, I had a flurry of bites around 7pm that lasted about a half hour. I packed up once that died down.

Got out yesterday after work about 4:30pm. Got one 13.5" crappie and that was it. Fished until 7pm without any other luck. Will be back to try out tommorrow during the day hours to see if they will bite better? Don't know how active the fish will be with the artic cold this weekend. Caught the one crappie of a forage minnow jigging spoon,glow red. Nothing off the plain hook and minnow or any plastics either.

Really, I wonder if you could use three if you held a Wisc. lisc. or if there is parity between the Wisc. regs and Mn regs. Anyone care to chime in?

As far as i know we here in wisconsin are still allowed to use 3 lines on the river, there is nothing in the wisconsin regs saying otherwise. Planing on heading out this weekend. Targeting some winter walleyes for the first time ever and a new challege, can someone please help me get started!! Where are the fish holding this time of year? And is there a general tactic that will at least get me a little action? Also are tip-ups worth a try or a waist of time out there?

All fish came off of small crappie minnow about five feet off bottom in thirty five feet of water.Nothing off plastics or spoons. Taking the brother n law out there today to try the day bite. Will post we I get back later.

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff
