remebering a 12 inch crappie

Recommended Posts

Yep,fishing was good on some lakes once. Now we can just try to recall and tell those stories about how it used to be.
I recall when my lake was full of 12 inch crappies. now it's full of 8 inch crappies.
My grandson will hear stories of good fishing used to be on my lake. by then mabey we can catch a few 4 inch crappies.
catch a few every time out. keep a few every now and then for dinner. Fish for fun CT

If people would practice catch and release it would make everyones fishing experiences more enjoyable

hopefully the new limits will help. but I still think most lakes need to protect the preditors, with size restrictions on the pike.

i think that if they need any special regulations on predators (northerns) they need to make a maximum size. save the bigger ones and reduce the number of little snakes. just my opinion im not a biologist.

crappie lady..... U sexy thing you...
Yep I know who you are.... Cuz I told you that that crappie was 25 inches..... and you told the taxidermist it was too. HE HE HE HE.if that was true, that crappie would weight about 10 lbs.
a 15 incher is a nice fish..... especially when the boy friend was wishing....just before he went fishing, he had one for the wall.
And now he has one. So beware of what you wish for. because in this case. His wish came true.

      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.
