Rumor or fact "Big Crappies biting on Potato"!!??


Recommended Posts

I heard on the fishing report that someone has been catching the slab crappies on Potato, but I know a friend that lives by Potato and there are no houses out there! So just looking for the truth!

Thanks!

I was up there last weekend and there were some houses in the West Arm, maybe they're catching em. Has anyone caught Jumbos out there? We used to catch em as kids, but now we only catch em every once in awhile.

I haven't caught any jumbo's this year, but I did catch a few last year. There are some really nice fish in Potato and man I wish I could get on it about fifty times a year. Maybe some day! I wouldn't doubt that they are catching them in the west arm, because that is where we caught them about seven years ago. We mounted five of those fish. They approached three pounds, but most were between 1 pound and a half and two pounds. I caught a few last spring out there, but not the really nice ones. Well, keep me posted if you hear of anything!

I'd like to find those slabs, never caught one in there. I've caught some real nice sunnies. It also has some potential state record Rock Bass. I've caught some that were pushing 2lbs but I didn't know the record at the time so I never weighed em.

I know of some guys that caught some 12"+ Crappies in the west arm in late Sept. a few years back. Haven't heard of anything lately. Can you get on the ice by that landing or is it openwater?

Nells,

As of Feb. 19 there was a little open water still running from the river. There were snowmobile tracks along the edge, but not enough ice for a vehicle!

      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.
