i fished a local lake last night known for an abundance of 7" crappies and a good walleye population. my nephew targeted crappies and i went with spoon/minnow head combo for 'eyes. no walleyes but many crappies about 7". i caught 3 over 10", nephew caught nothing over 7". by the way i was using a 1/8 ounce spoon with a fathead head. i just thought this was kinda interesting

Upsizing has worked well this year on a lot of lakes that I have been on. Especialy for crappies and bigger perch.

I've had luck with it as well, it tends to keep the smaller crappies off the line grin.gif

If I run into an agressive bite for crappies, I will almost always use a Jigging Rapala. I use the smallest size which really isn't that big. It seems to accomplish three things for me. One, it generally backs down the smaller fish. Two, it keeps the whole school aggressive and competitive. Three, it keeps a school in the hole longer.

And, I will always drop down a small jigging spoon like a Glow Devil or Jigging Deamon on aggressive gills and perch. It doesn't always work, but more often than not it picks off the bigger more aggressive fish first.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      We always called them wing-dings! I also learned that trick on LOW. Very tasty!! Cliff

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
