18 inch Crappie

After looking at the wind for this weekend and all the yahoo's that will be bobber fishing on my trolling runs this weekend. I went up last night. With winds at 6mph out of the s/sse I thought it would be a good night to hit the East side, hard to do sometimes in the fall with the wind comming out of the west this time of year. We started out with 3 fish in the first pass all slots for dinner. Then my friend Kevin lands this nice 20" smillie.

Later on the same spot, I get what I think is the same kind of fish, by the was it came in, but in this photo you can see that it was not, but a nice 27 1/2" with a relese shot also.

All in all it was a good night till the wind kicked up about 10 and made it hard to keep a trolling speed with 2-3 footers. But for the 3 hours we were out there we went home with our 8 and some nice pics of some great fish.

my hats off to you 18 inch crappie!

nice fishing!

i tried trolling in 2 to 3 footers today starting at 2:00pm. its tough controlling the boat and keeping a bait down on the bottom. it was good practice. about 5:00 i went out to indian point, found the spot and...sorry...bobber fished. it took 3 times with 2 anchors to get it. maybe 3-4ft waves? there were a couple trollers out there but they seemed to be deeper...oops? i was anchored in 9-10ft as close as i could tell. at about 10:00 i packed it in and headed back to eddy's. wow! what an extravangza! south and north of there following the shore, it was packed with trollers. i was very tempted, the wind was reasonable and the moon was incredible. my physical clock just wasnt quite up to it though. people were just launching too.

i caught a 23" and had one on for about 10 or 15 seconds that was remenicent of some big ones ive caught. nothing like you guys get, but for me it was good trip.

i also talked with a captain at eddy's before hand. he said he has gone out everyday this year! im in awh!

looking forward to reading everyones reports...

regards,

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff
