South End Crappies

Recommended Posts

DCF

Coming up Sunday and haven't heard much about the resorts and the crappie bite from the south end. How far do you need to go out from Rogers or any of the other south end resorts? How has the crappie or walleye bite been in these areas. Any info is appreciated. Thanks

Don't know, I haven't caught one single Crappie this year! Although the cold weather on the last three trips didn't help either as far as moving and trying new areas. I pretty much stayed put, only moving the house a couple times...

Right now my house is set up about as far out as any other houses out of Rogers. It's gotta be close to 4 miles out or more? If you look at the lakemaster map, I'm set up almost right in the middle of the mapped area closer to the Reservation line. Again I haven't caught any Crappies there yet, but last time I was up I did see a few swim by my camera, so I know they are there. I just didn't have what they wanted down there I guess.

Overall Crappie fishing has been slow on the south shore, but a few are being caught here and there. The north shore has been much better for some reason this year and from what I have heard is more of a day bite compared to the night bite of years past.

Hope this helps some????? wink.gif

From my experience so far this year, if you want to catch a lot of walleyes the south shore is the place to be but if it is crappies you are after Hillmans road is the only place to be.

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
