Crawlers so early?

Recommended Posts

I fished a small lake in western Mn for opener, about the size of Nisswa with a river that runs thru it.

Max depth of the lake is 12-13'. There is an old road grade that runs thru the middle of it(3' on top) and a bar on the other end across from a rock point.

This is every last bit of structure in the lake.

We caught a couple of eyes for the weekend, and everyone of them were caught on crawlers. This was a first for me.

Water was about 65F and stained. Water was fairly high yet.

We tried raps, minnows, leeches, and crawlers.

Worms produced, on a floating lindy rig only. WEIRD!

You fish the lake much Curly??

I think it's the one you're talking about.

Didn't sound like they did very good on the river below the (Contact Us Please), or above the lake.

I have fished it quite a bit in the last 5 or 6 years. It has been pretty tough the last few years for any numbers of fish. There has been a few really good years but when the word gets out the local fisherman hit it hard and I think that has had quite a impact on the lake. I mostly fish it in the spring but have fished it in the fall with limited success. A few years ago I was out the weekend after opener and the fish I caught came on gulp crawlers on a spinner.
