No one mentioned 1st Crow wing

Recommended Posts

I was just going through this fine forum here and I have been looking up the crow wing lake chain, and it seems that noone has mentioned the first one at all. Is that because noone likes going up that mile long river smile.gif My great grandpa had one of the original cabins on the first lake and usually I go up there every year or other year. (its been 2 1/2 right now)

But I was wandering what other people thought about the fishing on number 1 compaired to the others specificly 2-4, it seems that I only have luck on #1 but that could be due to the fact that I hardly have fished on the other lakes to much.

Thanks in advance

The fishing may be better because it does not get pounded like the others.

I have only fished it in the winter though, but did have some success. It looks like it would be a fun lake to try in a boat.

I tried to get there once from 3rd. After motoring for 3 hours and going through 27 gallons of gas, I quit.

Slight exaggeration, but it is more like 3 miles through very shallow waters isnt it? I did try once, but never got there.

Im not sure, my dad has always told me that the river between 1 & 2 is a mile, but going that slow with little wake through the river, especially on a pontoon boat, well it takes some time. Had to strap my jetski to the back of the pontoon so I could take it to the other lakes.

PS by the way if any of you own jet ski's, they are the best thing to fish off of. I have a 99 gtx seadoo which is a 3 seater, and that works best for going pretty much wherever I want to go plus you can sit backwards on it in idle and steer with your shoulders, that makes the best way to troll by yourself.

      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.
