Flag Island Crappie Bite!!

Flag Island Dan

Recommended Posts

The fishing at Flag Island continues to be great with excellent catches of Crappie and Walleye. The recent cold snap has firmed up alot of the slush on the lake, therefore travel has improved. The Little Traverse Rocks still have not turned the corner, however the shoreline points and some bays and neckdown areas with current are putting out great catches of walleye.

The groups that targeted crappie experienced excellent numbers and size. Fish averaged eleven to thirteen inches with a mix of small and larger. The bite started early and continued into mid day.

Nice Report, Dan. There is a chance we might run up there from Wheeler's Point area this coming weekend in search of . . .

I assume you are referring to rock reefs here but could you explain in a little more detail what you are expecting to happen where in this area this time of year. I would like to start fishing this area and it sounds like you know it pretty well.

Thanks, Mad Mulcher

We are also heading up that way this weekend. Any pointers to get into these crappies??? Enjoy crappie fishing in the Bemidji Area. Any help would be appreciated. I can give my email if that would be better. heartattack22 at hotmail (Contact US Regarding This Word) Thanks in advance.

Mad Mulcher, we typically see the bays slow down into February and start to target rock reefs and points. It just hasn't really turned yet this year.

We venture into Canadian waters for both crappies and walleyes. The crappies are a little harder to find - we punch a lot of holes in search of them.

      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?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
