Crappies have been real slow!
My brother lives on the north end and has his house on the north end in 50 feet of water where they usually bite good during February and he told me they have been catching a few but not hot and heavy!
I'll be up there on the 28th to remove my house and try to rip some crappie lips!
Also going crow hunting as it opens on saturday for the month of March!
Love shootin them duck and pheasent egg eaters! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

The crappie fishing on osakis was excellent this last week throughout the north end. Check out the deep holes and look on Friday where houses are cause there are crappies will be there also. Last weekend my uncle and myself ended up catching 30 crappies over 12 inches with the biggest being 15 inches. This has been probaobly the best crappie fishing I've seen on the lake in 10 years. I'll be looking for less pressured fish as it seems the bite slows once a crowd shows up.

mostly they were caught on waxies and secondly really small crappie minnows what I like to call pinner minnows. They seem to start biting about 2:00p and increase into the evening.

work coonhovens bay on the north end in 34 feet of water! Its no secret anymore as last weekend there where about 50 portables there on Saturday. Use waxies and euro larva to get the most action and set a second line with small minnows. The bite doesn't get going intill after dark so work deeper water to get a daytime bite.

PS its not fun cleaning after the @**holes that leave beer cans and trash!!

You know? a few years back it seemed things where turning around as far as the trash goes. BUT, the last couple of years it seems to be as bad, if not worse than ever! What's the deal?!?!? I think some serious peer presure is in order. Any one leaving BLEEP out on the Ice, or on the open water, should be forced to take it home in their teeth! Thanks for the info too. I apprietiate it greatly! Thanks, jim

      The people that used to fish Mille Lacs are migrating north because of all the issues down there.  The resort where I stay (on LOW) has noticed a large increase in Mpls traffic.  I believe fishing pressure is rising up north because of this.  Another thing is boats are much bigger now than 10 years ago allowing more people to get on the big water more easily along with the wheelhouse frenzy on the ice.  It all adds up to more fish harvest.   Don't think ML will ever get back to anything close to what it was.

      Jetsky, I was skunked yesterday afternoon in Frazer, but did very well today (9:30-11:15, 4:00-5:30) . 20-25 feet, jig or Lindy with a leech or crawler

      I take it medals are for carp only? I'll try and make it. Love me some carp.

      Awesome Hoey. Fished yesterday and today (wed) and the bite is good. Tues morning had no wind so there were a few hundred fish flies in the boat and your ears and most everywhere until the wind picked up midday. Caught a bunch of nice . eaters in 5 - 8 feet of sand.  Bigger fish are showing up on the reefs. Not all rocks seem to have fish, but most do. The best bite is probably in the mud. Fish flies everywhere and today lots of mayfly action up north. Lots of fish in 30+ right now. This is such an awesome lake. Good luck

      Well said, Hoey. Regarding large walleyes eating small walleyes...…...a number of large walleyes every year chow down on my yellow, chrome and red (clown) Rapala TDD 11's, black headed white bodied and polka dotted (wonderbread)Reef Runners and a full spectrum of colored shad raps......not 1 of which resembles natural baitfish. So large walleyes won't gobble down a native fish of small proportions? Gimme a break. We need to insure that LOW does not become the new Mille Lacs. By the way, fishing is fantastic on ML currently. Pretty much all bigger fish. I would hate to not have a fish dinner after a day on the lake.

      If fan selection is set to high or low fan runs all the time. Set fan control to auto, fan starts and stops with compressor run.

      got an answer from coleman mach- they said all of their AC units are compatible with a thermostat, but you would also need to install a control box as well for the thermostat to communicate with it

      Thanks Cliff.  I was pretty sure you weren't using both at same time because law and because a itty bitty shad rap wouldn't get down that deep.  😀

      Was up over the weekend and fished Friday and Saturday for an hour or two each day.  Couldn't get a bite on a leech but rainbows were the ticket.  Walleyes were on very narrow window of feeding but when they did bite caught 6 slot fish 22-26.  All healthy and spitting up 2-6 inch perch in the net.  Green beads and Red beads on a 6 foot lindy drifting about 0.7 in 13-16 feet of water.  Find the bait balls on the sonar and look for the walleyes underneath.  No keepers but that's ok the slot fish were sure fun
