Greg...GPS coordinates gotta be worth $100.00! Especially on Bowstring. You been fishing Cani pit? Finally talked to someone who seen one of those big trout, said it swam right by. Only one caught from what I hear. March is coming!!

Several of the cribs I fish or used to fish on bowstring are now deteriorated to the point that they do not act much as an attraction for the crappies out there anymore. My best luck has been to search the breaks that break from the mid twenties down to the thirties. The pods of fish generally drift up and down these breaks and are readily visible on the sonar.

Currently there is a strong batch of 8-10 oz fish with a fine showing of good ones. Hopefully we will have good recruitment into the following years, although the fishing pressure is increasing weekly.

A friend of mine was fishing the cribs last weekend without any luck at all. I have coordinates but they aren't right on. Just a general location. If you want these, e-mail me with your e-address.

When's your trip there?

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
