has anyone been fishing sunrise lake this winter? i've been out there a couple times... had some very good northern axtion but the crappies seem to be running smaller than last winter. i'm just wondering what size crappies other people are currently getting out there. tanx.

No, but me and a friend are hitting that lake sometime within a week here. You fish them in the weeds or over the 16-17' hole?

you have to pay to get on the access right? is there only one house on it that owns it or how are people getting out.

as far as i know that's the only way on the lake is to pay $7 and go out from the farm... there are a few other homes on the lake... i suppose if you had permission, you could go out from their land.

have either of you been out there recently...
i was out there last sat.... just during the day though.. not during the prime bites... i still got a lot of panfish... a few nice ones... i actually pulled up some nice size perch... next i'm going to bring some home to eat... hopefully they won't have any white worms in them. i'd like to get out there some night and see how the crappies axtion is... i only got a few of them sat. but one really nice one. best of luck fishing to ya.

      Down to 38 in Wake Em Up Narrows this afternoon...when we pulled the plug early in favor of sanity.  Did manage a 27.75”er this morning among a couple of others for our Herculean efforts. ha

      I caught a skinny 33 inch walleye out of red lake back during the crappie boom. I will get the photo as it hit a big airplane jig. I want to get a pike jigging.

      City of Virginia is mandating conversions from steam to gas so all the contractors in town are swamped. Couple more local options Martys heating Malmstrom

      That makes sense.......I think eventually upper red could turn out some 10lb fish. I pretty much figured this was a joke.

      Kelly come on....I live by the Iowa Great Lakes.......and can say the exact same thing you posted. While people may not directly make money from them....money is being spent and brought into the county which was not generated in the county helping the county and people in the county.    I get the "trash issue " no matter what is done people will litter. It will never stop. It needs to be managed, the situation isn't unquie to Upper Red, it's just not managed at upper red like it should be.

      What you are forgetting about is that a very, very small percentage of the people living in Beltrami County make any money from the fishermen on URL. Many of the people making money off the fishermen on URL do not even live in Beltrami County. But ALL residents of Beltrami County have to pay to clean up the garbage left by the fishermen. If a person owns property on the shore of URL how do you suppose they feel about having to continually be picking garbage up off from the beach? If a person lives 10 miles from URL how do you suppose they feel about having to pick up the garbage from the highway ditch in front of their home?

      I never go to the south shore so I'm definitely not an expert but I think this is some type of "contest" where you draw a piece of paper out of a bowl or something like that and the "weight" of your "fish" is written on the paper. A few years back there were Illegal northerns listed in one of JR's "contests" and the CO's looked into it and found that it was just some type drawing.

      The problem is they still need some ballast water on the Great lakes "When the winds of November come early..........."  😉
