Is Del Luoma or Jim Diago or any of those other guys out there from the crappie club? Haven't heard from you guys lately. I was hoping we could get an early start with the club and get into some of those early ice crappies. We should get together soon and make some plans and maybe share some new ideas to get this really going. Is there anyone else out there that would like to join this year? Well, hopefully we'll get some responses. We had a good time last year and are hoping to really make it grow this year.
Who's been out yet this year? I'm hoping to get out for Thanksgiving. Got some early freezers I'd like to try. Go get 'em.

good fishin

Hi All:

The responce last year for the Crappie Club was less than I expected. It would be nice to get one started and I would be glad to help. If there is any interest please post a reply here.

Hello Crappie fishermen.
At least this year no ice fishing withdrawls between deer hunting and fishing as most smaller water have enough ice to get out on as have been told. Illness in family and other things have prevented my first foray out as of yet. Report from friend this am is that they picked up a few crappies on Sylvan Bay here in town yesterday am. 4-5 inches of ice there. As to Crappie club if enough interest is expressed in numbers would be worth while giving it a shot. Dr. Jim did most of the work last year as he is familiar with some of the workings it takes to have a organized club , trophys etc. If enough interested a mtg would be in order. Lets toss it around for a few days and see what shakes.
Hope to get out this weekend somwhere. Good fishing guys. Del....

Sounds like we have some replies. With the replies and people not on the site who sound interested, I've counted 11 guys. Not bad. I know of 4 or 5 guys not on the site who are interested.
How you doin Del? Nice to hear from you. Visited Sylvan this morning, man they were getting some huge pike out of there. I'm gonna head there tonight and pick up some crappies. Maybe I'll see you there one of these nights. Well, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

GR fishin man. Which rig were you out on sylvan? Was out there again tonight, probably talked to you. The fishin really slowed down today, I hit two lakes and both had a real slow bite, when they're usually biting like crazy this time of year. Did good on Sylvan last night though.
Well, when are we gonna get together and have a meeting to start planning all this? We should get going pretty soon. Go get 'em.

didn't make it out there this evening. Went out this morning though, got there a little too late, just in time to pick up a couple. Didn't have the house this morning either so I didn't stay too long. Made at least an inch last night, and probably another tonight. The bite can be really good if you get there early enough.

      Rough weekend at the lake... but still better than any day at work! I managed to get out for a few hours Saturday morning and then got off the lake when the storms rolled in and stayed off. I threw for muskies for a few hours but didn't move any and then switched to smallies and boated a few on rock piles.  We were stuck for a while on Saturday with the road near Camp Vermilion washed out. Looks like the whole area got quite a bit of water. How'd everyone else fare?

      Does anyone know if you can get a digital thermostat for the roof top AC units? I have a coleman mach 3 plus. The fan constantly stays on and is super loud. But it does work really well for cooling. Any help would be appreciated.

      Spent the weekend on Ottertail, fishing tough. Waves 1 to 3 ft. 4" rain Sat. night, on/off rain all weekend. Caught a few biggest 18". Water crystal clear 15+ ft, even with waves, due to millions of Zebra Mussel in lake. Weeds and clam shells had many Zebras attached. Still better than working.

      My intent is not to bash here. Many Rapalas are great lures but a heads up I had 5 of them on the casting deck of the boat in the heat within 3 hours every one of the split from the heat!!! Wow that was money down the tubes. I have never had that happen. Also it is never a good idea to slap a lure to get weeds off I'm aware of that nonetheless my bride slapped her's to get a weed off nothing violent but what she got back was a lure in pieces. I love many of the lures but wont be buying any off those again. I have had the lips pull out on the Shad Raps before. My favorite is the Fat raps those are indestructible.

      It happens.  If you timed if post-spawn, its definitely tougher.  It takes them a while to recover and get into their summer pattern.

      Stovetop?  Walleye on west end is tough because there are fewer and they are mostly larger fish that don't seem to behave the same way as smaller ones.  
    • vermilionfox
      Pike should be working well on the deep weedlines leading into the two slop bays that Del mentioned. They are commonly calle "The Nursery". Largies should be anywhere in the weeds. Del also hit the nail on the head about the Windsock island and the bay behind it. The windsock island area can be a good walleye producer in the early mornings and sometimes in the evenings. Don't forget to try the larger "bay" (really more of an indentation) past the Windsock island and its associated bay. Lots of boulders in there so be careful, you'll see some shiny rocks! I've had good success in there  for both species of bass and pike, lots of nice sunnies too. There is a reef that runs from the point directly out across Norwegian from the resort marina and runs from there to the other shore running to the northeast. Good spot for the evening walleye bite. You'll probably also want to try fishing the Merry Go Round and the Stovepipe on Wak-Em-Up Bay for walleyes and smallies. I'll try to post more info when I have a bit more time!  
    • Rick
      Thanks for the heads up. You going over weed tops or deep?
    • MinnowBuckets
      Is anyone doing well for smallies or walleyes on the river right now? I haven’t been out in over a week and the water has gotten pretty muddy with the recent rain.
    • jigginjim
      If you live on the lake from what I have seen and heard they put the boasts ok n when nobody is at the ramp checking. So much for the great inspection, no decontamination after leaving the lake, that's a major issue I see. So far I have not seen any of the inspection crew at other lakes. Nobody on Constance, Buffalo or South ramp of Maple lake.
