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?

      Hey, Oakley is one of my favorite brands, but now many suppliers of wholesale sunglasses are accessible on the Internet selling sunglasses in bulk.

      Now, a number of different sites are available on the Internet that are selling sunglasses in bulk.

      Hi there, Polarized sunglasses of lens color like a grey base lens with a blue mirror is the way to go or for freshwater and inshore an amber, rose or copper lens with a green mirror are lenses that can be worn. My father is also a fisherman, So, I bought wholesale sun glasses for him from some useful sites. I always prefer to buy sunglasses in bulk, as buying bulk gives a number of choices to wear and it is also affordable in cost.

      Hey Guys, I'm wondering what the water temp on the St.Croix is. I Haven't herd anything, all I know is that Catfish become inactive after it drops below 60F. I want to know if they have already become inactive, you would think we would at least have until October.    One more inquire,  anyone one know about a nice carp lake north of the metro. Most people don't like fishing for common carp, but they are a great fall fish to catch when they Get 30+ plus pounds.
