Have not heard much about the cribs that were put in back years ago. Are they still there and if so are there many fish around them cribs? How deep were they put in. How far out are they?

Think the furthest is about 3.5 miles out from the east side of the lake. I believe they're sitting in 12 - 15 FOW.

There are 5 clusters of 20 cribs each all in 12 feet of water or deeper spread around the lake. there is a map of them at upperredlakeassn or Lakemaster has them on their map.

Do they consistently hold fish or do they just provide another spot to try?

Thanks for your concerns, Jonny P. I actually have the lakemaster chip plugged into my GPS right now. I could happily give you the name of each crib, and the exact location and depth if you'd like. ;\)

I'm just saying the the North Ditch cluster is roughly 5 miles from the eastern shore and the South Shore Cluster is roughly 7.5 - 8 miles from the eastern shore.

The only time that I have seen crappies caught with any consistency is mid summer, the crappies seem to move off them after the lake freezes over, I have seem many fishermen try to fish them in the winter but have yet to see much if anything caught there. (I am only speaking from my experience here with the south cluster)

Its the same with the northern clusters. Winter time will show some perch, few walleye and a ton of little pike.

      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!

      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. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
