Thoughts?

So, have you guys heard of crappies. They are tasting fish that are black and silver. Don't set the hook too hard, you can rip their mouth.

Anyone have any crappie luck, or is it a secret? Has anyone drivin past the "crappie hole" on Big Pine? Any houses?

Hey i have heard of those fish before. laugh.gif

Hit, we caught a few on long lake earlier in the year but that tappered off. I haven't been down by Detorit Lakes in almost a month, but this weekend i might be down there. As for Pine, i haven't ever iced it, and only summer fished it once, but that will change this year. Good Luck on finding some information

Shae --

What are you doing visiting another area?

I am a little upset with these OT perham guys. My wife's family has lived near perham for like a million years. I didn't know you guys all had lock jaw. confused.gif

Jerkin --

Such anger. You should get that checked out.

Thanks for not helping out. Stop by the DL forum and we will not help you too.

Have a nice day.

Yikes.

Dahitman44-

Don't take it so hard. I've noticed that a fair amount of questions about Pine don't get much response.

Coupled with that your question was about panfish, that seems to double the lockjaw factor. I personally know a couple local lakes that had the living snot pounded out of the panfish over the last few winters. It was all over a couple sites, and it was a real zoo on those lakes. People that get on a good bite now tend to keep it quiet.

Your second post certainly was worded in a way that would not really make people to want to help you, even if you ment it in good humor.

Everybody - Let's play nice.

Big Pine gets the crap fished out of it as bad as any lake, winter and summer. shocked.gif If there was a spot that didn't have a fish house or 4 on it this year, I'd be surprised. You should have seen the southeast end!! It was a zoo. On a year when the fish are biting, they get wiped out pretty fast. If I have a good bite going on BP, you can be sure this is the LAST place I would talk about it... Sure, this forum is fun to read, but to share information with total strangers after I busted my rump figuring it out??? I barely even tell close friends!! When you're catching fish you don't need these forums, other than to brag a little bit grin.gif. People who aren't doing well think those who are should share??? C'mon, gimme a break. I don't expect anyone to share info, but I read the forums anyway just in case!!! Hope Springs Eternal in the heart of a Fisherman! If a Great fishing spot is like gold, which I think it is, then these forums are like lazy people begging for money from the hard working ones. Maybe I'm missing the "spirit of the forum", and suspend my account if you must, but realistically don't you think it's pretty normal for people to be hesitant to share good info?

Gissert --

I did not mean any harm. I did not ask where you guys were located or any specific Qs, I just thought I would ask if there are any shacks on the crappie hole yet.

I would think that would be a fair question.

I have a LOT of great panfish info on the Perham area, thought I could share, but you guys don't like to play nice. frown.gif

Thanks anyway. I know some nice fellas at Gene's Sportshop, I guess I could call them

Fair enough.

BTW, I have shared my spots with others on this forum, but it has only been in person, and only after both parties were sure that it was not gonna get plastered all over the net or local watering holes. Ive seen too many lakes get the snot pounded out of them. In fact, I know of one this winter that word got out on and the panfish have just been decimated.

Last winter, a good tulibee bite was reported here, and the next weekend there was a zoo on that spot. That incident alone caused a lot of folks to clam up.

Just because many are tight lipped should not be confused with not playing nice. Sarcastic follow up posts sure don't help gain anyones trust, and borders on trolling.

If no one responds to your request for info, don't take it personally.

Again, BP just seems to be one of those lakes on this forum that does not generate much response when people ask. I know nothing about BP, never fished it.

Your suggestion of contacting a local bait shop is a good one.

I'm with Gissert on this one, don't take it personally, it's only fishing. I have never fished Big Pine, only Little, and I have only seen 1 crappie caught on that lake in the 3 years that I have been there. Granted, I am not a die-hard fisherman (you probably have figured that out by now), I generally spend a lot more time (and money) at Homestead Lumber, Crane-Johnson, and Bretz Hardware than I do at Genes Sport Shop. But, it makes me happy so that's what counts I guess.

I hear what you are saying. I don't like to give up too much info either.

I was a little sarcastic with you guys because I was trying to be funny, but also I thought it was strange that a simple answer like if the houses are on the spot yet.

I meant NO harm. It seems like an ok question. I will stand by my question.

Thanks

I hear ya, Code.

BTW -- My bro-in-law just moved his house off the crappie hole on Big Pine. Just three houses there and the run has NOT started yet. I would think later in the month.

I figured since you local boys didn't want to give a report I thought I would. wink.gif

I'll bet I ran into a couple of you fellas at the perham JC deal. That was a good time. -- Not everyone is your enemy. wink.gif

So Hitman, you asked a question about the Crappie spot on Big Pine, when all the while your Bro-in-Law had a house on the spot you were asking about??? blush.gif Pretty sneaky!! grin.gif That's only going to make us Perham guys more cautious in the future!! tongue.gif

No way man --

He spends so much time in the barn it is impossible to get a hold of him. He just moved to that spot like a week ago and he doesn't return messages very well. I thought I could hear from you guys quicker.

I guess he was quicker. wink.gif

You fellas need to work on your trust issues. grin.gifwink.gif

This thread seems to beg for a slice of my father-in-law's unvarnished wit and wisdom, from a collection lovingly known as 'Arvinisms':

"You'd think if a guy was wonderin' if they be bitin', he'd be fishin'..."

      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April. 
    • Kettle
      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night
    • smurfy
      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?
    • Dash 1
      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.  
    • Kettle
      Well boat finally got "fixed" and I picked it up Saturday. Last week worked 96 hrs so Sunday wanted the day to fish alone. Boat ran great out to the spot, 4 miles or so. Fishing was great boated over 50 walleye in about 6 hrs. Caught them lindy rigging, jigging and bobber fishing watching them on the live scope. Kept 6 between 18-20 inches. After using the trolling motor for the entire time fishing, go to fire up the tiller and it bogs down and dies. Another 4 hours running the trolling motor back to the launch. Fortunate it's under warranty. Bummer of a day but fishing was great landed one about 7 lbs too

      Terrible news for that area especially this being such a prime time for tourism. We can only hope for dryer days ahead so they can get back to normal.
    • SkunkedAgain
      For those not in the area, the Lake Vermilion area got anywhere from 5-10" of rain the other day (depending on your source). The lake is rising rapidly affecting docks, shorelines, and cabins. The Littlefork River that runs through Cook overran its banks and flooded the town. It's not expected to crest until at least Saturday, which means things will get worse. Places such as the Comet, the Muni, the library, and many other businesses are flooded. Many roads in the area have been destroyed by flooding as well. There's lots of damage. Below are two quick links.   https://www.northernnewsnow.com/2024/06/20/floodwaters-inundate-city-cook-evacuation-location-open/   https://www.mprnews.org/story/2024/06/20/cleanup-continues-flooding-in-northeast-minnesota-southern-minnesota-rivers-rising

      Apparently just the motorized portage.   If you paddle you are good to go.
    • CigarGuy
      The only way I could do it is running parallel to the shoreline on the "L", but with the wake from the boats and my rocky shoreline, the waves just bounce it around too much, even with bumpers tied off. My neighbors dock is recessed off the main channel, I'm going to sweet talk him into letting me dock it there.

      They closed the Trout Lake Portage down washed out.
