Fishing the south side of the bar has been a good area.

During early ice I caught some out in front of the launch at night. No size to them.

I havent fished crappies in front of the boat ramp this year but i had a camera down the hole yesterday from 3:00pm till dark and i never saw a crappie, but a pile of dinky sunnies. I picked up a couple of nice pike close to sunset with tip-ups and shiners

Kinda makes me wonder if next years crappie class will be a good one or if the crappies have always been that size there

You hope that they continue to grow so that eventually there will be some crappies out there worth talking about. There seems to be a few lakes down that direction that are loaded with small crappies. Marion, Crystal and another lake that will remain nameless at present since it hasnt been mention on this forum. You just hope that these huge schools of small ones grow up and become decent ones.

during the first week we had the house out on marion around mid december we had a few nights where we pulled up quite a few 10 to 12 inchers that was only for a few days and we never limited out but after that it was dead for us so now we moved to waconia and 2nite the 17th we came back with 15 sunnies all within 9 to 10 and one 10 inch crappie

      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.
