Was out there sunday, caught about a dozen crappies. The fish are there and the bite is inconsistent. They will bite on and off. Fishing about 22-28ft of water with minnows. Not much size to it.

Has anyone been out on Bald Eagle around 10 pm or so in the past few nights? Have you noticed an increase in bites around this time? I live nearby and have some bass and crappie in an aquarium and they have gone into a feeding frenzy around 10. I am wondering if that relates to what's happening out on the ice.

Went out lastnight in about 23 FOW. Didn't bring any minnows...just 1 Ratso! Hammered them! Caught about 20 and kept my limit of 9-10". Very fast and furious fishing.

What time? I'm trying to see if the guys in the aquarium are in sync with the guys in the lake.

Caught majority of them between 6:30-8pm. It was only me and I was swapping bigger fish out for smaller fish. When I left I was still marking fish but I had to get home to the wife. grin

there is a consistent 18 inches. a lot of truckers going out and permanents out there. it should be ok. been out there the past week. i would probably wait for another couple inches to be sure.

I live on the lake and there are houses and trucks all over so getting around isn't a problem. I haven't been out so I can't give you a read on success ratios.

We fished 10:00am-3:00pm and only kept 3 Crappies. Tried tip ups on the north end with no luck, a neigboring guy flagged like crazy- Muskie and three northern. He was a great guy- helped us out but we ran out of time. I need ot go out of town so we can just fish!!!

Thanks for the heads up. We went out this morning and there was about 16" to 18" of ice and yes you could drive anywhere. We fished 18 FOW and it was pretty steady crappie action. Unfortunately none were keepable. Great day to be on the ice however.

Mr. Pickeral

Just wondering were abouts people are catching these crappies. Been hitting up some other lakes in the area with moderate success. Thinking its time to switch to a different location and dont know much about Bald Eagle. Any info would be great.

      Bill , Theresa spent one night in Montana, They managed tow get 2 walleyes under 17. 1 around 20 inches , They also landed a 36 inch pike. So all in all Not to good.  The fishing has been way better out deeper , but with this warm up and my houses weighing 5 to 7 thousands pounds.  I need to use common sense and stay on this side of the pressure ridge for now.   When the weather warms  the ice expands , the weakest link is the pressure ridges and can become quite active. Its just getting light, but from what I have heard through the grape vine  the lake was gowning and popping last night with a couple new breaks so if your coming up please check at the resort you plan on accessing.  There crews are out there everyday and know more about what"s going on with bridges ,cracks and areas that should be avoided.  Right now the temps are just to mild to make much if any ice. I was surprised to measured 13 1/4 where I have old Minnesota. I imagine  there's a bit more snow closer to shore so were seeing a inch or more further out where's there's less snow.   We have guest coming  today  with a few not coming tell tomorrow.

      Bump! I assume it's safe for walking but are there any spots to avoid for foot traffic? Have the week of Xmas off and would like to try this lake.

      I bought one from them too I priced it out and it was about the same to build my own as to order from them so I just ordered it from them. Mine wouldnt be as neat as theirs haha

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.

      @Northlander   You still making rods?     mrpike, Steve makes some great specialized rods for reasonable prices.

      Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.   Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.   Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!
