Crappies on Horseshoe?

Recommended Posts

Coleman

Well, my dad and I had a chance to put the dock and my boat in the water today. And I was wondering if anyone had a chance to try around for crappies? I was thinking about heading out there this weekend or maybe early next week for a little action. I was thinking about trying Becker, but I was also thinking that Mudd would be a good try as well. Anyone have any info or ideas where they might be hanging out? Thanks.

This is the second weekend after ice out. There are any number of shallow bays that they might be heading for. I know I am going to try under my dock on Horseshoe this weekend and a couple of bays including the tip of Krones Bay. In the past I've also had some luck in a bay on horseshoe by they entrance into Long Lake.

I hit Cedar Island on the chain yesterday evening for my first open water outing of the season. It was a great evening to be on the water. I managed to catch and release some decent sized Gills and Crappies. The Gills were in about a foot of water. The Crappies were a little deeper.

It was nice to be fishing without freezing my fingers off and having to constantly skim ice out of the hole. cool.gif

Wow! Some of my best Crappie memories are from the horseshoe chain just out of Cold Spring. When they are hitting they are HOT!

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.
