Fishing report

Recommended Posts

Well, here is what I can tell you.

My dad is fishin up on Red with a group of his 8 buddies(not me frown.gif) and I think they got up there aroun noon(lines in the water) and by 4:30 he had a couple of nice walleyes(had to throw back) and 8 gargantuine crappies. Another guy in the group caught 15 crappies. I think the total for the few hours was about 40 crappie and a handful of walleye, not knowing how many were keepers. So far, sounds like a great time and makes me wish I could go.

OK, so my dad finally got back and I almost died listening to the fishing report. As posted above, he had those 8 crappies and finished out with his limit after a little mishap. As the story goes, he had about 5 crappies in a 5 gallon bucket and was moving it around when he splipped and bloop, bloop, bloop, there goes three crappies. Really didn't matter since he was on top of 'em but still a hard time seeing 45 inches of crappies falling down the hole. The group of 8 he was fishing with ended up catching 54 crappies that day, all of them almost 15" +/- .25" and all weighing one pound nine ounces. They were staying at bear paw and went to their cleaning station with several 5 gallon buckets full of crappies and everyone there was wide eyed, jaw hanging open. Seems that there wasn't that much luck that day(Friday). The rest of the weekend was a little slower due to the colder weather and the laid back feeling after almost limiting out for the whole group. Each guy in the group ended up taking their fish and had a nice meal of walleyes on shore.

Good Fishing

Figured I'd throw in my report: My dad and I made the trip up with the portables, started fishing around 9am on Thursday(1-25) Wasn't looking good as we moved 4 to 5 times and had 2 slot eyes and a perch to show for it. Around 2pm, I went outside to drill a few holes and jump around and bam! As soon as I started the auger dad had 2 crappies flopping in the pail. I go out to check the holes I drilled, and the Craps are waiting down there for me! Even with the shakes I pulled 2 out more. We caught 7 in that half hour after I drilled. We Fished until 630 and ended up with 14 crappies, all around 13.5-14.5". Caught 7 or 8 eyes, only 1 keeper 16.75" and a handful of 10" perch that were let go. On Saturday, we fished from 630a- 1230p, in that same area. And man was it slow. Caught 3 crappies 6 or 7 eyes with 1 more 16.75" keeper and some more perch. Our 2 day totals were 17 crappies, 12-14 eyes and about 10 perch. Not bad, but the previous week me and buddy had caught 60 eyes and 32 crappies in 2.5 days. Oh well, i cant wait to get back up there. We were fishing out of Hillmans.

Friday actually was a good day of fishing for my group out of Hillmans....4 of us drove up and were on the lake by 9:30am by 11:30 we had maybe 15 crappies......that is when the wind picked up and the fishing slowed somewhat.....we slowed down hole hopping I should say but by 5 o'clock 2 guys were leaving with 15 crappies and a couple walleyes. I ended the day at 8 with 9 crappies and my other bud had 5. We met some friends in a hard house that came up on Thurs and they only had 5 crappies and didn't move an inch both days.......Sat with the wind and the temps being the way they were and I had 9 crappies I decided to cut my weekend short and head home without fishing Saturday at all......Friday was the day to be fishing but I heard some good reports from a few guys that did well on Saturday too.......Good Luck

      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.
