3pm until dusk

Look for the deep holes with your gps. If you don't have a gps, then fish near the shanties, they are over the deep areas. Once you get there keep drilling holes until you see marks below your flasher. Once you have some marks make about 6 holes for hopping around. The lake has alot of smaller crappies that will keep you busy. It will be hard to catch anyting over 7 inches though.

You will definitely do better towards dusk but I've been able to catch them starting as early as 11AM. Definitely more finicky early and really light biters but a spring bobber will give you a chance.

Stop by Harty's if you don't have access to a lake map. He has one on his counter and after you grab some bait you can ID a couple of the deeper holes. I've been fishing the 44' hole on the south-east arm but it can be a bit tough to find. (last weekend the two permanents that had been sitting in it were gone and it took me a few holes to hit it where I wanted to)

Last weekend the crappie minnows got hit a few times and tend to be a bit larger fish. Wax worms on the spring bobber rod and you are in business. Reel them up slow or you are going to end up with a whole bunch of 7" crappies floating in your hole. You learn quickly to take it real easy on them or at least by my rules they then end up in the bucket since I won't waste them. A graph will really help as the upper fish tend to be more aggressive and their depth will vary as the school(s) cylce through the holes.

Just got home from Medicine and I agree with Tripleplay. We fished from 5:00 to around 9:30 and had steady action (though they were all around the 7" mark... or smaller). Over a hole... we marked quite a few suspended fish. A vex helps to target high active fish, but my buddy caught a bunch without one. VERY light bite. I was using my noodle rod and they barely twiched it when they bit. Caught crappies on both minnow heads and waxies with green glow jigs. Nothing of any size was caught, but nice to get out for a few.

      I will be, but I'm going to be sad since all the perfect hunting weather over the last three days rolls out just in time for opener 🤦‍♂️

      Yes that is correct. Try the BWCA forum. Cliff

      Water temp is 67 degrees in Stillwater this morning.  You can find the water temp from the following website.  Hopefully it's ok to post it.    https://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/uv?site_no=05341550

      I apologize for bumping this old topic, but I have done quite a bit of research on this, so I want to share my experience. We have one, but it is not the most heavily used piece of furniture in the house. It's in the study, so that one of us can be reading while the other is on the Internet or doing desk work, i.e., we can still be in the same room for conversation. Although it's one of the less expensive models, it is wonderfully comfortable.

      The main price differences are due to the amount of padding from one model to another, and the grade of leather in which you choose to have it finished. Also, some have attached headrests or headrest pillows. Unless the manufacturing policy has changed, some (all?) models are also available in microfiber cloth upholstery rather than leather.

      One of the main advantages of the product line is that most of the models come in a choice of sizes, so that it's possible to match the model to the size of the person most likely to be using it. For example, the Diplomat, Consul, and Ambassador--still the least expensive models, I think--are all the same shape and have the same stitch pattern on the upholstery but are different sizes of the same chair for different sizes of bodies. . . . If multiple people will be sharing a single chair, however, it is generally best to pick the size appropriate to the largest person, i.e., largest basic body frame size. My wife is petite but still quite comfortable using the larger Ambassador.

      If searching online, Stressless is the U.S. product marketing name, but also look for "Ekornes" (Eh-kor-ness), the name of the Norwegian manufacturer. They do have occasional national sales, but not on any predictable schedule, or at least none whose timing I've been able to figure out.

      We bought our chair from Amazon https://10restbest.com/best-zero-gravity-chair the online name of a furniture store in central Massachusetts. I usually try to "shop local" and would have been glad to buy it from a local furniture store with whom we'd done business for years, but they would charge a $65 fee to transport it three miles to our house, whereas the place in Massachusetts offered free delivery. On YouTube there are a lot of interesting videos on this topic, I will share with you, one of them, hope this will help someone. Good luck

      History_Geek, I'm guessing the Vermilion area your referencing is the Vermilion by Hasting Minnesota/Wisconsin border area, this page is regards to Vermilion in northern Minnesota, approx. 200 miles north of that area your requesting info on. I have never seen a cat fish up here, they might be here I just have never seen one here. just saying. Good luck keep searching someone on FM will help with your ?.
