I use Northland tackle only!! Use both #8 Forage minnow Jig and #4 Creep Worm with super Glo-Paint. I also use the Glo-Buster to charge them up. Put two or three waxies on at a time and I also like to put some crappie scent in a medicine bottle so I can dip the jig and waxies in just before sending it down to do it's business!!! I prefer the glo/pink and glo/blue combos for colors. Good luck!!!

The way the fish have been biting lately,you could use a cowbell w/ a treble hook and you'll catch Red lake crappies!!!!

Friday night 2 of us got our limits. We were about out of Rogers about 4 miles NE. Moved 3 time before we found them. Once we found them we limited out in 45 minutes. It was unreal!! You put your line down and took a drink and looked back and the bobber was gone. We have done well before but nothing like this. cool.gif

was out fri nite - 4 of us total. used the usual gear, yellow glow outfished red glow this trip. went out to my usual spot (still @ 14')and started catching slabs at 7:30.
the 4 of were done at 8:30 w/60 slabs. sounds like the next trip i'm going to have to move into shallower h2o. might have to give them waxies a try next trip too, can't wait for that daytime bite. (sounds like it has just started to take off a skosh)

Hey Nibbler, definitely bring the waxies. I filled out too Friday night out of Rogers about a mile and a half on the east road. I could not get the glow red or a minnow to work so I switched to a neon green with a waxie and they smothered it!

Well we went out Saturday. We found a place that we heard was usually pretty good, just on the north side of the pressure ridge where it turns. Anyway we caught a few perch there but no crappies. We had the house set up and all but no fish on the graph so we finally gave up. We moved to an area where a lot of cars were, We think right over the cribs but we're not sure. Anyway we just drilled a couple of test holes and they were biting. We never got the shelter set up we had 30 fish in 90 minutes or so. Like people said, waxies are the way to go on a blue and red glow jig in 12-13 feet of water. This was after 9:00 What a blast.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!
    • Wakemup
      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
