March fishing. Guides?


Recommended Posts

How is the crappie fishing up there in March? We always take a trip to red but may be switching it up. Also, who are some reputable guides up that way, specifically for crappies. We've stayed at bayview a few times in the past during the summer. I'm assuming black bay is probably pretty good that time of year.

Thanks for the info.

Hi Ranger,

As Fishmeister mentioned there won't be any crappies in Black bay yet, but there are some pigs that can be taken that time of year as well as some monster northerns! I would put my money on Woody to put you on some fish!

Is pike and walleye open on the MN side since it is border water?? Woody as in Woody's resort? Do you guys think late ice is better or this time of year for crappies?

HI RANGER,

NORTHERN SEASON NEVER CLOSES, WALLEYES GOES UNTILL MID APRIL. YES, THATS WOODYS RESORT. IF YOUR HEART IS SET ON FISHING CRAPPIES, YOU WILL HAVE TO GO ON THE CANADIAN SIDE. NOT MUCH HAPPENING ON THE AMERICAN SIDE OF RAINY THEN WITH CRAPPIES.

SINCERELY,

Fishmiester, Is there a place and or guide that you would reccommend going with on the Canadian side? I am looking for something for about 6 guy's. We would be targeting both walleye's and crappies.Do you do any guiding? Thanks!

FM,

I called and talked to Woody last summer about crappie fishing I asked specifically about time of the year that would be the best. I only asked about open water, but the response I got was less than enthusiastic? I really got the impression that he would prefer not to guide for crappie ...am I mistaken. confused.gif

My wife and I would really like to learn (catch) more about the crappie. We have a fair amount of success with walleye, but want to expand our abilities. That is one of the reasons I contacted Woody about crappies specifically.

Thanks Fishmiester, when we figure out our exact plan I will contact him. As far as JAK's experience, I'll have too see. I hope that is not the case. Thanks for the response guy's.

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
