Crappies

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hey all, I am looking to get my boat out on the river this week/weekend. I would really like to catch a few crappies if I do. I was planning on trying either the spots I hit by Bayport this winter, or I have heard up towards Taylors Falls there are a few hold they hold in for pre-spawn. With this warm week, it may not be long before they spawn. Any one have advice? Interested in going?

My goal was to sneak out tomorrow evening, as well as thins weekend, but too many things to do. I hope to spend either an afternoon or morning one day this weekend on the water. It is hard for me to say when I will, I have stuff I must get done this weekend if I am going to get to go Turkey hunting fishing etc later. You may be better off getting out by yourself, I can't commit to a time. Maybe later? Or if you want me to contact you when I know, I can.

They might be in the marinas, if not keep trying and you might hit a bonanza.

Here's Ferny's Croix crappie advise:
If you've ever caught a crappie on the river that spot is usually a good spot...or near a good spot year after year. It seems to me that every place I've caught crappies I catch them in the same place the next year.
You sometimes get the incidental crappie when trolling for eyes and saugers...remember that place! I don't ever remember catching a small crappie on the croix? How about everyone else?

ferny know of what he speaks.
I've got one spot picked out that once the water goes down I'll be all over it. Must have pulled 25 out of the the spot I'm thinking. Not rocket science either. yellow twister tail and a jig.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
