crappie spawn

Recommended Posts

rosspj59

Going to go fishing the week on a lake north of stillwater. Wondering if all the crappies being caught lately still have eggs in them or not. If they do the warm weather coming this weekend will definitely put them in the mood. Any observations would be appreciated.

The crappies have not begun to spawn yet for what I know. The tempatures seem to be getting near the 60 degree range though in most of the shallows. After a few days of warm weather, and better tempatures at night, the crappies should start.
The walleyes were still spawning on alot of lakes 2 weeks ago, so the crappies definitely haven't on those.
I think everyone is anxious for the weather to become stable.
Good Luck fishing

From my experiences, the crappies in this region seem to spawn more towards mid-June. They are usually a good two weeks behind the bass, and they have just started with the majority to hit around the full moon (June 2nd). Due note that much like bass, both crappies (male and female) will guard their nest, unlike almost all other species.

Fished in the bullrushes from 4:30- 6 pm last night on a northeast metro lake. Caught one 12" crappie and one 13" bass and a few sunnies. Fish were not biting well. I was not able to see down in the water very well to spot the fish in the bullrushes, maybe they weren't there anyway. There seemed to be some algae growth in the water or something distorting the clarity. Found some sunfish in the lilypads in 3 feet of water later in the evening, no size though. I think the water is still too cold. When is it going to warm up? Next week does not look to be any warmer either.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!
