How is the croppy bite???? Is anyone out there doing any good? I am hoping to get out tomorrow sometime and was hoping to see a good report but nobody seems to be catching any crops anywhere. If I don't see any good reports I'll probably just go to Rush and try it. Thanx!

Hey Aftecrops!
I don't know how good it is or isn't; but there is a picture in last weeks outdoor news of a guy who caught a 17 1/2" 3 lb 5 oz crappie in Goose Lake near Harris. It was good for him! Good luck!

Mistermom, did it say when he caught it or any other details? I'll have to try to find that issue and check it out. Moby Crop! I assume he had it mounted.

Hey Aftacrops!
Not much for details. Just a picture, the guys name, and the fish stats. I've seen some bigger crappies come out of Goose but that has anything I've even heard of just smoked. Gets me fired up for ice-out fishing on North Goose and the south bay.

I'm from the Stark area and went to school in Cambridge. I still know a few of the folks around the area. Might even know you. My name is Joel Ellingson. I live in Robbinsdale now; but still get back home often. Later.

Mistermom, thanx for the reply. I've never ice fished Goose but might have to try it now. I went to school in Coon Rapids(class of '70) and now live in Oak Grove which is south of St. Francis so I don't think we know each other. My name is Ron Hanson.

I did not go to Rush yesterday but saw a good report on Bald Eagle in the metro section and fished it from 6-10pm and got around 20 crops. I kept 10 nice ones (8-10") and had a blast. They bit on waxies at first but then would only go for minnows after 8pm. Anyone do any good on Rush?

I was told by a reliable source that the 3+ came from neander lake a small land locked lake that is very near goose.

Hey EYE-EXIST!
I heard the same thing today from a good buddy of mine Mike C who lives right near Neander. Mike's Dad's property butts up to Neander... I may have to investigate further.

No I probably don't know you Ron. Goose is a good ice-out lake for crappies on the south end and the north lake. Maybe I'll see you out there in April

There is no access. You have to know somebody who owns property or maybe walk up the creek (I have no idea how safe that would be). Neander is about two miles east of Goose.

Here it goes, I talked to the Steve C., who is the neighbor of "THE KID" that caught a 3lb 5oz crappie on Goose lake. He brought it into the sport spot in Cambridge and weighed it and thought that he had broken the state record- Apparently sport spot had an outdated record and the current record is 3lbs 15oz(white Crappie) out of Lake Constance, in Wright county. I consider the source reliable but, it is also "from the neighbor of the kid who caught it."

Good luck in the search of "Willard" the illusive 7 lb crappie* wink.gif* -RR4

What we have here folks are two fish from two lakes. Goose is the only one of the two that has a public access on North Goose. You are better off paying to get on on the NE corner of the main lake. A farmer there has a paybox there.

Neander is only accessible if you know somebody who owns property around it.

That 3 pounder on Neander is not a rumor. I was at fish lake bait and tackle 5 minutes after it was brought in to be weighed it was 17.5 inches. I am not sure how to get on Neander but if anyone finds out please let me know id like to get on there some afternon. I live in North Branch so it is pretty close.What a beautiful fish. I went up to Red the last 2 weekends and caught many 13-14 inchers so i can imagine pulling up a fish like that what a rush.

      Same here, our 1st color unit, 520 c(?), had that type of transducer(blue/5 pin) & it didn't last 1, maybe 2 seasons. We replaced it & the 2nd lasted much longer.

      I had a lot of problems with Lowrance transducers of that sort of vintage, the ones with the blue connectors.   It seemed to me that they didn't deal well with being frozen.   Now I store my transducers inside in the winter (I know that isn't possible when ice fishing).   I went through 3 or 4 transducers before realizing the problem.   Try borrowing a transducer to try.   Sounds exactly like what mine did.  Gradually lost sensitivity and would lose the bottom.

      Conditions for snowmobile riding in many parts of the state are as good as they’ve been in a long time, prompting what Department of Natural Resources conservation officers call the biggest number of riders in years to hit the state’s 22,000 miles of snowmobile trails. While zipping around on a sled is a great way to experience Minnesota’s snow-covered outdoors, Enforcement officials remind riders to leave the booze on the shelf or in the refrigerator until after they’re done riding. Alcohol is a factor in more than 70 percent of snowmobile-related fatalities in Minnesota. And it isn’t just intoxicated drivers who pay the price for their bad decisions. Earlier this month, Eric Coleman was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison for a tragic incident last year when the snowmobile he was driving struck and killed 8-year-old Alan Geisenkoetter Jr. Coleman, who was drunk and whose driver’s license was revoked when he crashed into the boy, had multiple previous DWIs in a motor vehicle. The incident prompted state lawmakers to close loopholes in the state’s DWI law. “We hope the increased penalties for people convicted of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence will cause them to think twice before drinking and riding. But they won’t bring back Alan or heal the damage this senseless crash caused his family,” said Jen Mueller, a regional training officer in the DNR Enforcement Division and the agency’s Enforcement Education Officer of the Year. “There’s never an excuse to drink and drive and we have no tolerance for people who do it.” The new law – Little Alan’s Law – went into effect Aug. 1, 2018. It means people convicted of driving while intoxicated – regardless of the vehicle they’re driving – lose their driver’s license and are prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, motorboats and snowmobiles. Before the law change, people convicted of DWI in a highway-licensed vehicle still could legally operate ATVs, motorboats and snowmobiles. The changes apply to violations that occurred on or after Aug. 1, 2018. The DNR anticipates Little Alan’s Law will affect more than 2,000 people each month in Minnesota. But since the law requires a DWI conviction – and these cases take time to move through the court system – specific numbers aren’t yet available.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
