Congratulations.Anytime you catch a 1# + crappie,it's a nice fish.I once held...actually,I was tied with someone for the world record,(National Freshwater Fishing Hall Of Fame,Hayward,Wisconsin) white crappie caught through the ice,1# 13 oz.The record has since been broken.

Very nice slab for the metro area. We used to catch some nice slabs out of Long Meadow Lake in BLM. For some who know this shallow ducky lake it may be hard to believe, but if you knew where the springs were you could catch slabs 1.5 - 2lb.. Tried Red Lake first time this winter and it was a dream come true. Slab heaven averaging 14"-15". Did not way any, but I'm sure they were 1.5- 1.75lb. If you haven't tried Red Lake, its worth it's weight in gas.

Nice fish. I caught a 15.25" or so this winter on a west metro lake. I still havent gotten the picture developed though. Its in the camera I have been carrying around for 2 years. I also caught a half dozen 12.5+ on the same lake over the course of the winter. Over the past 2 years I have been to red lake 3 times for the mecca of crappie fishing. Out of three trips I personally caught 4 crappies and they were all on the last trip. Mabey next time!

      DLD I'll keep rigging as long is I can keep catching good fish but entering into August I'll start to pull leadcore more.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?
    • DLD24
      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.

      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
