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.

      Some of the lakes have roads park and walk it what I will be doing

      Yeah I'm planning and scouting starting next week.  Any help is appreciated.   Also a reminder....   You will need a new fishing license as of 3/1/19.  The warden often comes by to say "hi"  and chat for a bit at our gathering.   I would hate to have someone forget.   Especially me. 😉

      I got stuck on West Rush Wednesday.  Thanks to Nick?  P  from Rush City for helping me get out.  I couldn't budge.  Mike from Mike's towing was going to come out and rescue me but Nick saved me a bundle!  Thanks, Mike for being willing to come out on the ice.    Just wondering how travel is on Rush and Pokegama this weekend.  I will be hesitant go get out until the snow gets packed down on a bit.!!!

      Might want to have him call a realtor but I think there is something open in that strip mall behind McDonald's. A friend retired and closed his jewelry store and that spot might work good. I think it's called Pokegama  Plaza. Next to Edward Jones and Sears.

      Hey PRO V, you wouldn't happen to know of any office spaces for rent in rapids would you? My co worker is maybe thinking of moving our office up there if he can find a reasonable price and enough room for his cabinets.

      I am going to put a get together on Blue Lake in March!! I am thinking the second weekend at the time. My question is would Saturday or Sunday be best for most of you? This will be out of the north access as I have work on finding a good spot with active fish yet. Please let me know and if you are interested in helping find a spot with active fish. Thanks
