Making the first venture out in the boat for panfish this spring - anyone been on Owasso yet? Are the legions of little crappies active? Thanks!

We did. The wind was pretty bad. Caught sunnies & the odd tiny perch but never saw a crappie. We did mark fish in the 8-12 foot range that weren't biting - that might have been them. But the population of 15 million crappies weren't playing nice on Friday afternoon. tongue.gif

Yea, I fared about the same on Owasso on Saturday. Couldn't find the darn crappies.

i saw some huge bluegills and some decent crappies the other day. there is a canal that leads down from sucker lake to vadnais. stood on the walking bridge and just watched them come up to the worms we were throwing. nice looking fish. do you think they are just kidding when they put up the 50 no fishing signs? confused.gif

at least its fun to take the kids down there to see them.

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
    • Big Red Lodge
      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?
