Go to Fish Lake in Maple Grove and park at the public access. Walk straight out until you find 25'. Drill a hole and the Vex will be lit up like a Christmas Tree. The crappie action will be nonstop. The max size will be about 5".

5"? Thats it? That's tiny. But should provide plenty of fun for the kids including the big kids too if your just looking for a good time.

Look for humps/points/underwater islands that drop in to the main basin of the bay/lake and you'll find crappies. I fished one such place on Minnetonka last night. Hump topped off at 9ft and dropped down to 25ft fairly quick. I drilled some holes starting at 15ft down to 25ft. Marked fish and set up in 20ft and jigged the fish in. Don't assume you need to drop to the bottom. I started jigging about 10ft down and the crappies came cruising in. Seldom went below 15ft and even caught a couple at 5ft. Glow jigs help in the initial attracting. If you don't get any action in 10 minutes or so move to a different hole. Study your lake map and don't be afraid to try spots away from the crowd. I could see over a dozen shacks/portables about a 75 yards away but no one was around me. I had great action and when I quit at 9pm the fish were still biting. I wateched everyone in the community spot leave way before then so I bet I had the better night.

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      This is great! I’ve never heard of this either Skunked, thanks for sharing- will give it a shot this summer!

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
