Any crappie or bluegill reports??


Recommended Posts

D-man,
Thanks for the info on Reel-Bottom. I don't know why I was not able to access it the first time. My brain must have locked-up.

I have fished Clearwater several times this year (my favorite lake in that area) and have done fairly well. I go straight east from BJ's Bait, past the first group of houses in 28', slighly shallower than most. I did not fish over the weekend but spoke to a friend who has cabin there: reports were that the crappies have moved deeper, many fishing over the 50' holes. Sounds like they got several nice fish in the 12-13" range. Clearwater has an excellent crappie population. Most people get them using crappie minnows, however I always get a few of the light-biters using a spring bobber and waxies.

<;))))><

Well my dumb [email protected]# spent the day out on buf on Sunday, I don't know why I went back there, I knew the fishing was done for the year at that lake. Unfortunatly I got harrassed by 5 slimmies, and I hate slimmies, the worst part was 2 of them didn't spit the hook or break the line so I had to grab them. No Walleye, no crappies just small perch and slimmes. The ice is still in good shape there with about 16 inches and people are still driving. I spent Sat. on Mille Lacs, 1 4lb eye and 1 pout, not good. I made the mistake of going out of seguchie, there is a huge crack about a few hundred yards from shore so you can't go anywhere on that st. albanys bay side. Ice was also about 5-6 less up their than most of the annandale lakes. Good Luck

I was out on Bebee Saturday. Lots of little sunnies. . .but with the 2.5 year old that worked pretty well. It was calm and warm and he enjoyed the trip. They were just starting to bite around noon, but I had to leave. Managed to pull one 'slimmie' out as I was packing things up. Tasted pretty good to me so I didn't mind.

      Several months ago, it was challenging for me to find at least 6 hours to sleep. Students most probably know that feeling: professors just don’t care. But after I found Proessays, things changed. I can entrust completing papers to them and have my life back. At last!

      In a guide to writing sociology papers, the Sociology Writing Group identifies four types of papers that are based on data sources as the most common writing assignments given to undergraduate sociology majors: (1) The textual analysis paper in which the student has to analyze a text like an essay or book. The text provides the data, and the student is not asked to interpret the text. (2) The ethnographic field research paper in which data are generated by observing and interacting with people in their social environment. (3) The quantitative research paper in which data are collected using specific methods of data analysis and collection in order to answer a sociological question. (4) The general research paper in which data are collected through library research to refine a question and gather information to support the paper's thesis.

    • leech~~
      Well just for the Halibut, you could try salmon or Cod! 😆
    • Kettle
      I've heard it you nail them to a board, smoke them, throw away the fish then eat the board they can be good?

      What's wrong with drift fishing if you have some wind? I do it all the time with good results. 👍

      In my opinion not one that big. Smaller ones if done right are good. But I've had 1 to many bad ones too ever get near a smoked carp again

      I was out alone on Big Sauk Lake on Thursday morning. I brought some leeches and nightcrawlers in search of walleye. I was marking a lot of fish in the 20' - 25' depth range. Some decent sized arches suspended about 10' - 15' down, which I suspected were likely northern pike, and some nice arches near the bottom, which I hoped were walleye. I couldn't seem to connect with any of them and for a while I decided to try shallower to see if there was anything more willing to take.    I moved into about 15' depth and found perch. I could tell they were perch by the way they were nibbling off my bait. At one point they ate everything off my jig up to the hook and l was left with what was on my hook. So, I dropped that over the side and decided to to just let it sit on the bottom to see what happens.   I made myself comfortable and laid my rod across my lap with my hands crossed over it. Yup, I dozed off and in a short time I was awakened when my fishing rod was almost pulled out of my hands! I grabbed my fishing rod and began to fight the fight of a lifetime with a fish! Now, I've caught a few 36" - 40" northern pike and some 25" - 31" walleye and a few 22" - 23" smallmouth on my walleye rigs but never had I experienced a battle like that. I was getting concerned that I would run out of line on my reel a couple times. With my 6# test line it took me about 10 minutes to tire the fish out enough to get it into my landing net. It turned out to be a common carp but what a fun fish to catch! I've never caught one of these before. Lifting it up I estimated it was somewhere between 12 and 15 lbs. I didn't find any regulations about destroying them and learned they are not invasive so I released it.    Are they good smoked?
