What to use?

First time coming up. I've always waited to come up to the "crappie factory" and finally decided this is the year. So my son and I are coming up the last weekend in Jan. So I have a couple of questions.

Does the bite happen in early morning or evening. And is anything biting during the daylight hours.

And are they biting on plain hooks, or jigs. And if so what color of jigs.

Thanks you everyones input.

I doubt you will get many posts to your question due to the fact that if you scroll through the many pages and posts on this forum you will find the answers to your questions plus some other information that you will find helpful, not trying to be sarcastic, but it seems alot of the same questions get asked on this forum and all one needs to do is do a little research, I'd bet you will find the info you are looking for. I personally have not been there yet his year so my help is limited to this.

From the posts I've read and people I've talked to, the bite seems to be stronger during the day. Glow jigs seem to be working the best in pink or blue. That's my 2cents worth. I'm heading up next Friday to give it a whirl. I'll post my findings when I return. I hope to tangle with some of those monster pike in URL as well!

Why not make a day of it. My favorites, forage minnow, ratfinkee, genz bug, worm, plain hook w glow tube.

Phleps ticks (size 4), snake jigs, ditto on the forage minnow (haven't tried the glow tubes yet). When we fish we start off with different colors to see what's best at that time, but seems like the majority of the time it's red glow.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
