Recommended Posts

Tipup101

I have yet to house a crappie this year. The wife is making one of here rare trips out with me and she likes to take a few home for dinner if she can. So I want to head to a smaller resivor with her it makes it a little easier on both of us. So where would bee the better early after noon spot to go. Silver creek or willow creek. Keep in mind I would like to mabey take home five or so fish to eat for dinner. I'm also trying to make it more fun for her so she will go more.

For keeper sized fish during the daylight hours, I would reccommend lake zumbro. Kinda nice that you can drive right to where you want to fish as well.

i don't know if i can help you with your wife but maybe crappies. i know that the country club manor pits haven't recieved too much pressure and i have caught a few decent ones out there during open water. But that isn't too far of a hike for ya and is definitely a little puddle. If you need directions aon whereabouts just search this forum for CC manor pits or just pits and you should find more that you want to know about acces and all that jazz. ike

If your between Willow and Silver Creek and crappies is your venture, I'd do Silver for sure. WC has a few crappies, but not many. Even with the pressure on SC, your still better off in the search for crapps.

Got a buddy who might be interested in going to willow creek this weekend...how did Bud do last weekend and what rig/depth was he at.

Thanks

They where in twelve or so feet of water out from the point. Crappie minnows and plain hook they caught 20-25 cappies they kept 10 in th 9 inch range. Plus one 10 1/4 they let it go. They did have a picture I'll see if he'll email it to me so i can post it.

Silver creek on monday they headed out there. And caught crappies kept ZERO! The fish from sunrise till after dark and never caught a keeper. He has fished it for a few years and has now claimed it as fished out. I think he may be over reacting. But he was very disapointed with the whole day. Funny enough he said his going back on friday.

Leaves me wondering where I will head on saturday.

      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

      Two additional open-house meetings are scheduled in the Twin Cities metro area to help people understand and ask questions about Minnesota’s draft statewide deer management plan. “We heard from some who wanted open-house meetings closer to home in the metro area, so we added two to the other ones in the lineup,” said Leslie McInenly, acting wildlife populations and programs manager with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Here is the schedule for the metro area meetings: St. Paul, Monday, April 23, DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road. Richfield, Monday, April 30, Wood Lake Nature Center, 6710 Lake Shore Drive. These meetings are in addition to 35 others in which Wildlife staff will provide handouts explaining the deer plan and process, and will talk with attendees individually and in small groups. The DNR is taking online public comments on the new plan now through Wednesday, May 9, at mndnr.gov/deerplan. There will be paper copies of the questionnaire available at the open houses for those who are not able to complete it online. All meetings are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and people can arrive anytime during the two-hour time frame. There will be no formal presentation at the meetings. Minnesota’s new deer plan sets a new statewide harvest target, increases citizen participation in deer management, and outlines ways to keep the population and habitat healthy. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Has anyone heard what they'll do about the City Auto Glass walleye tourney if the ice isn't off by May 19? Even if the ice is off....will they close Pike Bay?
