a friend went out there last weekend with his pickup and near didn't get off. the other trucks that went with him couldn't make it out onto the lake. he didn't reach the area he wanted to get to and only caught little perch where he did make it to.

I wouldn't mind getting out there, but it sounds pretty much like a pain in the arse.

The house was in 20ft,and thats were the crappies were caught. We fished hard on Sunday, drilled holes from 6 to 35ft. Little perch everywhere. Please post after your trip as the bent axle has put a end to my over night trips for the year.Thanks Bluehat

Not much action the last couple times a friend of mine was out on Lower Sucker. As is typical of crappie lakes, she says, it had a good bite for a couple of years, and people insisted on hauling buckets of fish out, and now it will take a few years for the lake to recover.

I haven't fished this lake since about 2008, my Sr. year x2 at Bemidji. It was always that little secret no one knew about and i have kept it that way since moving back to the cities, but i would like to get back up there and try it again. I remember the accsess was a little rough come winter time and the spot we fished was a ways out there. It was around the 30' mark if I remember correctly. Not to sure it was within walking distance or maybe it way...it's been awhile. I was thinking about heading up to Red Lake this weekend to try my luck at the early walleye bite and I would love to hit up the good ol' crappie factory, known as Lower Sucker.

How is the ice up there and is anyone driving out on the lakes yet?

      I’m really hoping to make it up there on Saturday. Might try a couple different spots, pending success rate.

      Also depends on if your married or not, or want to stay that way! 😄  At my buddies old place since he had an out house we would just bring water and start using it when we could get the heat up with a fire place and a few elc, heaters as to not die. Then we were good! 😉

      Hello everyone,    I know I'm new to this website, but I've been fishing for a while now. A few years ago I picked up a Black Betty 6061 for ice fishing and I bent the handle trying to put it into a Frabil hard case on an exceptionally cold day (dumb me). I wrote a few emails to 13 Fishing/called 5 times and explained the situation and they told me I would have to pay for my parts. I said that was fine because it was my fault (even though I thought the handle should be a little sturdier).   Flash forward a 2 weeks later and I have my new handle. I took the old handle off and put the new one on, but the retaining screw that holds the washer for the nut in place wouldn't fit. The new handle 13 Fishing sent to me has a screw hole tapped too small. I called 13 and they were not aware of a screw size change. I asked them to send me a screw that would fit the handle and they said okay. 2 Weeks later, no screw. I called them again and explained that I had been over a month without this reel operational and no one had sent anything. I told them that I had a fishing trip coming up in the next two days and they could either overnight the screw to me or send it to the location I was going to be fishing. They said they would send it and it didn't come before the trip, nor did it come after the trip I just came back from.    They either sent me the wrong handle that doesn't fit my old BB, or they changed the dimensions of their design. I'm just trying to get my reel operational and it seems like such an easy thing. I'm probably going to go down to the store and just grab a small screw that will fit, but it seemed too easy for 13 Fishing to send me the part. How should I deal with 13 Fishing now? Has anyone else dealt with this issue before? I really liked 13 Fishing's gear, but if this is what happens when something goes wrong, I may end up turning elsewhere for the $$.

      I always use a dead stick next to a jigging hole.  The water is clear so you can get pretty high off the bottom to bring them in and then lower it to them.  Red hook on the dead stick during the day and anything glow after dark if you want but I use pink.  I usually use fat heads or rainbow with good success.  My go to is a pink and blue rattle spoon or red.  Just off of structure during the day with a nice easy move of 15 feet or so to the top of the structure morning or night.

      Now it sounds like they’re shooting for October. Won’t be possible by fishing opener

      Depends on the year.  Typically early May.   Some years you can get away with earlier....

      You are welcome Icehawk. I want some great fishermen there to teach and pass on knowledge. I also want to showcase the friendships that can be made here.

      It would be great if he is right.   Now, if he is wrong......   Still need to stop deer farms from spreading this disease.

      GPS!  Helping my son move into a new house this Sat or that sounds like something to try. Didn't really want to spend my last weekend of Walleye season lifting craap up and down stairs! 😟  Good Luck.
