We caught sunfish there in december, but nothing big. It was too early for crappies. I'm sure there has been a lot of people out there lately tho since walleyes closed.

We call it Lake Stupid. Used to be really good crappie and Large mouth fishing. If you have the Lowrance Map Create software it is named on there but would probably start a fire for a few people's honey hole. Can be really good but havent been there for a couple years.

We called it Lake Stupid because you could be dumb as [PoorWordUsage] and still catch fish on it. First time I went there we did pretty bad. Seemed kind of ironic at the time.

I got a hot tip to go fish the lake for 15" crappies: Yup, the guy who took me out put me on his hotspot! His 15 inchers came up to about 9" on my tape! He thought they were bigger than that!????

There are crappies out there, and they are easy to find, they are just small: I won't be back out there so rape away! There are too many good lakes in the area to deal with the knot heads taking limits of 9" gills and 9" crappies: Had it been left alone it was amazing! I have one gill on the wall.....11.5" out of there, beautiful fish, covered an 8" hole: (Maybe that is why I am bitter now) leave the lake off the internet and leave it alone and it will produce: Maybe when I'm 70 I'll go back.

DLoutdoors, I think we all understand how you feel about posting lake names on the internet. Although I do not do so when it comes to small lakes, people are free to name lakes if they wish. Please try to refrain from name calling and making generalizations about people. I think we feel a little bit of bitterness/sinisism out of you which doesn't make for fun reading, which is what this website is about. Bottom line, if you have nothing nice to say, just don't say it at all.

There are a couple lakes off that county line road, one is panfish/bass the other has walleyes and gills. It is true that the one with panfish/bass has been hammered this year, and the gills can be large but all things cycle. It is a very shallow lake susceptible to winterkill so that is one thing to keep in mind. There are many large lakes in that area that hold nice panfish, Lizzie, Lida, Pelican, and Crystal to name a few, you just need to get out and find the fish.

I was just getting at the fact that there is crappies in there. There is no reason to get your panties in a bundle DL. Almost all lakes have crappies in them you just have to find them. As far as people rapeing the little pond, it happends to crappies everywhere. People just need to start letting the crappies go so they can spawn in the spring. DL talk with your local house and senate to see if you can do something about people keeping them 9 inchers, I DONT. Listen to the points fisherdog made too

Interesting that I get a "talking to" for name calling when I didn't do anything of the like, yet I get referred to as a women and wearing panties and that is o.k.?

Guess I will just not say anything at all.

Thank you

You guys know how I feel about it.

It is nice to exchange information but I hate to see a small lake raped and destroyed by piles of people.

Just me I guess, but those kind of things upset Da Hitman.

DL this is the quote I was referring to about the name calling and generalizing "don't let the internet fisherman and citiots ruin it....again just my opinon." Let's just exchange information, and enjoy the site, it's not meant for bashing.

      Thanks for the reports guys.
    • MinnowBuckets
      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.

      Hi folks... I wanna specifically address fishermen and women, boaters, outdoorsmen and women, and their spouses and significant others. Also, anyone who believes that our right to access public waterways supported by our tax dollars, and managed for our benefit by the DNR, should not be infringed upon by special interests... listen up... You may or may not know about a new program in Wright County to limit access to three lakes in the Annandale area where wealthy lake-home associations have coerced the County Board into implementing a pre-launch "AIS Inspection Station" in the city of Annandale. Anyone wishing to launch a watercraft on Lakes Sylvia, Pleasant, and John, must first travel to the city of Annandale (miles away from any boat landing), go through an inspection process, and be given permission to launch their boat in the form of a zip-tie on the trailer. There are MANY problems with this inspection regime. One problem is its hours of operation. It is open from sunup to sundown. This means that if you wish to go fishing in the evening, or at night, or early in the morning, you must first travel to Annandale THE DAY BEFORE you wish to access the lake, and get your zip-tie. Needless to say, this will undoubtedly prove to be a big enough burden on boaters and anglers that many will simply choose to go elsewhere, which, we contend, is the unstated goal of the Lake Associations who have funded this effort to lobby the County Board. They want non-residents off "their" lake. Another problem is the fact that these lakes are already unfortunately infested with AIS, which means inspecting boats on the way IN to the lake makes no logical sense. Only inspecting boats in their way OUT of an infested lake will have any chance of slowing or halting the spread of AIS. Another problem is that local businesses in Annandale, Southhaven, and to a lesser extent Clearwater and Maple Lake, will be adversely affected by the reduction in commerce that WILL occur as people from outside these fine communities decide to take their watercraft elsewhere. Another problem is the scope of this program, and the stated goals of those who are promoting it. They have said point-blank that they hope to have every county in MN look to Wright County as an example of what can be pushed through, as Lake Associations state-wide are organizing their resources and their political clout in an effort to see similar County ordinances implemented throughout Minnesota. This could, in the future, lead to a scenario where every boater who does not own lake property will first be required to travel to a central County Inspection Station in whatever county they wish to launch their boat, before they will be given permission to launch at a lake that may be many miles away from the station. We believe this is an infringement on the rights of Minnesota boaters and sportsmen to freely and responsibly access our public waterways. Even the DNR is skeptical of this program, but since it is a county matter, they are accepting it for now. Sorry for the lengthy statement. Now I'd like to ask you to take action. We have organized a social media page, over 600-strong now.... Our goal is to gather as many concerned people as we can in this group - and then appeal to the Chambers of Commerce in these fine cities, to organize themselves and appeal to the County Board for a reversal of this misguided policy, on the grounds that it will harm them economically as people take their dollars elsewhere to avoid the infringement of the inspection regime. If you haven't already, and you are concerned about liberty to access public waterways without undue burdens placed upon your access, would you consider lending your voice to ours, and joining our group? Thank you! Join Us!

      Not as easy to find bullheads in the chain as it was in the 80s-90s.... but you will still get a few here and there. The cats took care of most of the bullies over the yrs😉
