CRAPPIES SHOWING UP


ice pirates

Recommended Posts

We were 6.5 miles out of Hillmans on Friday evening and two guys caught a total of 26 crappies. Then on Saturday evening and six guys, caught a total of 37 crappies. Probably two dozen walleyes in the two days.

Stayed in one of Buddy's sleepers. Very nice accomodations. Brought the portables but never needed to take them out of the truck.

Went home on Sunday with our limit of crappies. Overall, a very successful weekend.

The ironic thing is that Buddy had sleepers on crappies and then he had 5 groups "no show" for the weekend. They have no idea what they missed.

Crappie bite is slow. Went through Rogers (out 3.1 miles) on Friday and NO success. Went cross country to WW and Hillmans, alot of drilling with little to no success. Settled the permanent out of WW (out 4.7 miles)and ended up with 8 for 10 guys and 4 houses. Heard to the west is the place to be, perhaps even south and west.

Quackaddict -

Practiced catch and release on quite a few. As fun as they are to see coming up the hole, it gives you a good feeling watching them go back down the hole and swim away.

      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?
