Slab Crappie Reports with Pics!

Recommended Posts

Sportland_Bait

Slab action started today. Well I stretched the truth a little. We only caught a couple of true slabs, but lots of decent crappies. The sizes ranged from 9-12 inches, saw a neighbor boat land a 13 3/4 inch brute. The fish were pretty scattered and a little finicky. I fished an area for over an hour before finding a small pod of active fish. The water temps were about 44-46 degrees and the fish are ice cold to the touch. Most fish were cruising the cabbage weeds and hanging pretty tight to the bottom. With the decent forecast this week the bite should progress nicely. Many fish should start filterring into the shallow bays and boat canals. It sure is nice to hit lakes again here in Minnesota. I added a few pics to our bait shop web site http://www.sportlandbait.com/brainerd_nisswa_fishing_pictures.html, be sure to stop in for the latest. There will be some real slabs caught this week. Please share your reports. Its great to get a feel for whats taking place out there.

I snuck out this morning again. The fish are a little more active yet they are still a bit scattered. C&R a bunch of nice 11-12 inchers. The wind was a little chilly out there. I also talked to one of our guides who was out pre-fishing for some upcoming guide trips. He said the crappies were just starting to come into the Gull/ Margaret Lake channels. Should be a great week. I'll be in the bait shop all week, so stop by if you have any questions. Good Luck out there and have fun.

      I got a good idea........maybe have a couple more beers and not worry so much about your neighbors. In fact invite them over for a dinner and a beer and discuss your issues...that's how my neighborhood settles issues.  Man to man...works out pretty good....

      Send him some literature on CWD. Like FishingCT mentioned, disease spreads at common gathering points where deer may rub noses. CWD, for example, spreads through a prion or protein that can spread this way.  This spread of disease is an example of why disease in raised herds is such a big deal.

      Feeding deer, especially in the winter, is a really good way to spread disease. Maybe you won't have to worry about them as much next winter after all

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.
