Oh I forgot to put the story on here that went with the pic. Well I got that one and almost lost it then later we looked out and the 7 month old dog that was out there with other fisher ppl, had my crappie and had ripped the tail right off it! I told him to drop it and he took off with it back to his owners truck. But the guy seen him and came over with another crappie, he felt bad but I know how it goes my dogs were puppies once too.

here's a couple other pics I took from sunday

Nice looking crappie. If thats a small one then you have one heck of a secret lake.

ya I know its a heck of a lake. The first time we went out there in the winter was last year. Jake's gps said it was 1.5 miles or so well we didn't think that's how the crow flies. So Jake, my brother Tyler, Noah, and I went out at 5:30 we left our parents house got out to to the lake at sunrise began our walk and 2 hours or so later we were finally to the fishing spot. Jake's beard and Tyler's beard were both frosted, my hair was frosted all the way down to the tips (and I have long hair) it was cold with a nice face wind blowing not to mention it was like 15-20 below already. We got out there and set up and Ty pulled up a huge crappie right away and we pulled em out left and right all day mixed in with huge perch. It was a great day, and towards the evening Jake and Noah with some beer influence decided they were walking back with an auger and checking ice and that they were gonna drive my car out there. It was almost three miles we had walked out at 6:30 in the morning in the bitter cold, just to find out there was like 4 feet of ice, didn't think it'd be that good since its basically a wide part of the river. It was an awesome fishing trip.

    • eyeguy 54
      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Nice Crappie!
    • Rick G
      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      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.
