Since about a week and a half after opener, I can't seem to find them. I have been vertical jigging with a Fathead.

Anyone else having any success?

What presentation?

What depths?

Thanks- Brandt

WalleyeWeasel-

Are you fishing under a float, or just pitching it in from deeper water to not spooke them?

Thanks- Brandt

Hey River Rat -

We found the walters last weekend anywhere from about 10 to 22 fow in the Chisago area. We started catching them in the afternoons in 20-22 fow, then moved in shallower down to about 10 fow after dark. We really didn't try shallower than 10 - we would have gotten into some pretty good weeds.....but, I'm sure they're in the weeds!

We were doing best with a fathead on a live bait rig with colored hooks and beads (no spinners) during the afternoon, and switched over to a leech and jig at night vertical jigging or slip-bobbering.

I haven't made it out since Monday - so not sure if this is still the ticket or not.

I pitch a jig around the weed line but the weed line is bordered by deep water. Now I'm thinking the bigger ones are a little deeper. I catch em on slip bobber when i need a break. I'd much rather work a jig than watch a float!! I trolled around till i found them then i anchored right on the weed line.

The crappies were on a float but it was only set at about 9"

they were feeding on the surface, in the weeds.

Hope that helps!!
