I've only heard some "slow" reports, but it all depends on where and when you're fishing it just like any other lake!

I always drive by on HWY 5 and see houses out one the back side of the main lake, or what looks to be the main lake... Is there any big crappie in there? I have fished it in the summer and cuaght a few Bass, also it seems very weedy...

I think perhaps "nice crappie" is sort of a subjective term. I've spent many hours on the ice on Mitchell and have caught hundreds of crappies on the lake. The 2005 DNR survey pretty much matches my findings: "Mean length was 7.7 in 1999 and 7.4 in 2005, with a majority of fish being 7-8.5 inches long. Mean weight also remained unchanged at 0.2 lb with most fish being from the 2001-year class (4 years old)." I will say that almost all the crappies I caught there last winter were very skinny. All that being said, it would be a decent lake to take kids for some consistent action around sundown. If I were to fish it again, I would definitely fish for pike.

Yeah in the winter of 2005 I caught a whole pack of 5" 'eyes, and last year I caught and released one 13 incher. According to the DNR survey, Mitchell has a very small walleye population. Perhaps this is one of the reasons that the pike in the lake tend to be obese? wink.gif

      Way to go.  We got into them this weekend also but wow was travel difficult in spots.  We drove wheelers out onto two lakes and took an hour to get off of one lake.

      Fished out of Morris Pt 1/2 day Friday and all of Sat. and it was bad.  5 of us kept a total of 5 fish.  Fished in 32 ft Fri, 28 ft Sat and 21 ft. at sunset.  Marked a lot but I'm pretty sure they were little ones or tullibee.  Access was pretty beat up when we left Sat. night.  Got checked by DNR and they said everyone that they checked had the same results as us.

      Mike has been in the business for more then 30 years and also use to teach it up at Pine City Voc Tech.  He does it all.  The crappie and a few others he did for me. Lighting not the best. Tell him Steve A, from Brooklyn Center sent you. May be he will give you a $1 off! 😄

      Yeah north side of Co Rd 35 close to the road(Co Rd 176 (?))  that comes back south from the church. You must've caused quite a ruckus down  there as I see they're still lookin for ya as the poster is back up.

      I've read about the mail boat in the past, and it sounds like a great operation.   My water-access neighbors just had a PO Box in town and would pick up their mail on a semi-regular basis. At my estimate, 95% of mail that arrives is junk so you probably aren't missing much by picking it up once per week.
