Bald Eagle Bite

Recommended Posts

Craig Plummer

Hows the crappie bite been lately? I am going out there this coming saturday with a friend neither of us have fished the lake before but we want to get into some catch and release crappies. Any hot baits or colors? Depths?

I originally posted this in the East Central Forum but realized Bald Eagle is more of a Metro Lake.

I've got a couple deeper pockets marked on my GPS that I plan on hitting but any additional advice would be helpful.

Thanks,

Craig P

94 people looked at this in the metro forum and not one person has anything they can tell me about Bald Eagle?

Im from up north Craig but was on the lake last Friday. My son lives in Cottag Grove and fishes it alot. My feeling is the pan fish are very small!! Thats because of all the people that fish the metro lakes. You could do just fine by staying on the outside of the all the houses. WEATHER LOOKS NICE FOR THE WEEKEND, SO GOOD lUCK!!

Moved from just north of the island to south of it about 1/4 mile. There's a drop from 16 ft to 30 ft. We set in 29 and caught all the small crappies you want during the day 3pm up to 8pm. They were suspended 10 ft off the bottom. Hitting everything, minnnows, larve, and small scented plastics. Will is correct, use something that glows, pink was working the best. Good luck !

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs
