I haven't really been out, have been dealing with stuff over the last few weeks and finally getting back to normal.

I went out one time 2 weeks ago with my brother. We just tossed around jigs and plastics for crappies and sunnies on a small lake. Didn't catch any crappies but we caught some sunfish. I also caught some decent pike and my first walleye of the season smile

Hope everyone is having a good spring.

James:

We caught some crappies out of the boat earlier on 3 different lakes when we had some consistently warm weather but with this recent cold snap it has been slow, can't even find them in the deeper water where we had been getting them. Peter is coming up from Florida soon so "get ready"!!

The gills bit good all weekend using a fly under a float, basically the same rig red fish fisherman use. My rig consists of few split shot above the fly then a bobber. I was working it around old reeds. Most fish wanted the fly moving so a good hard pop to make the fly lift and make the bobber smash into the split shot and the gills would race up and hammer the fly while it was settling back down. The rig works great on crappies also when they push up shallow.

Tried to find some crappies Saturday, but no luck. Water temp was anywhere from 48-52 degrees. Did catch several gills, bass, and pike though. Slip Bobbering with plain hook and crappie minnow worked best. Also had decent luck pitching jigs and plastics. Hoping for some warmer weather so the slabs move in.

Just move out deeper from where you think they are moving in to!

Heck, I've caught crappies this time of year in 25 FOW....

Heck I am thinking about going out to my 28' winter hole, putting on a frosty with a waxie, and using the Vex!

This kind of crazy weather must really mess up the spawn, i don't think they know if they are coming or going do they? We had April in March now getting March in April eekeekeek

Once you see those temps pushing 60 degrees they will be stacked up like cord wood in their spawning haunts!

Went out this evening with JB to a very small lake neither of us had ever fished, drove up to N end of the lake in a small weedy bay and got some nice crappies and big gills. Fished a 6-8' drop off area. Crappies only hit on jig tipped with 2.50" white Gulp, none on minnows but the bigger Gills sure were hitting the small jigs with a minnow.

Lesson number one, when you go fishing make sure you have gas in the boat so you can hit more than one spot. Tired BigC yesterday. Lots of little northerns, but no panfish.

Hearing some good reports from around my area... Wish I had more time to get out and fish but I just haven't had the time. I'll take the kids out this weekend and hopefully get them something to put up a fight. Try a couple shoreline spots in the evening and see how it pans out.

      Good Morning everyone, The family and myself will be in Mankato July 27-29 for the MSF baseball tournament(U11).  It appears we may have down time Sat. Was wondering if  anyone could point me in the right direction to a shorefishing area I could take the family?   First time to Mankato, so no real idea where to look. Thank you.

      I hadn't hit the river in >1 month, but last night went Fishing below the SCSU dam in St. Cloud last evening and the river conditions are really quite good for July.  Water height is at a good level and the past week of dryness has improved water clarity. (...that may change today with possible rain all day in forecast) Probably the hottest bite I've ever had in the river--Pretty much everything was biting on nightcrawlers!  (there were 10 different species pulled out in <2 hours!)  Fun Evening!

      I assume you mean the 110 size one.  I have all three, the 90, 110, and 130 in different colors.  I have never had great luck using them however.  They are a well made lure and they have good plopping action, I just can't get very many bites on them.
    • gimruis
      It came down pretty quick the past couple days after they got like 8 inches of rain at the headwaters last week.

      I purchased The newer smaller size Whopper Plopper, what a kool surface plug.  I can give it to most any client fishing and they can catch great fish. I had  a family of four on a guide trip, (Dad, Mom,  son10 and daughter 6 yrs old.) What a blast, was going to be dad and the kids, I told mom to come with to enjoy time . We spent an hour plus catching many sunfish and rockbass, the kids having a great time cranking fish from 16 feet of water.  I said "Lets look for bigger fish."  A quick bit of instruction with mom on how to set the hook, She began catching Bass after Bass, (I had only used the lure myself once for 10 minutes and caught 3 bass.) The Mrs, caught her personal best bass, of 19 inches.  Going out to get several more, for as sure as Gods make apples and bees, I know this bait sooner or later going trigger either a large pike or musky if on the of those lakes.  They may cost a bit more, but I my conservative approach to buying lures.  Money well spent.  I got the loon.
