Despite the nice weather last weekend, most of the bays, channels, boat harbors, and other spring crappie spots still aren’t holding big bunches of panfish. Until water temperatures improve several more degrees, anglers can look for crappies suspended just outside of those areas. Little Jim's Bait...
Wind the recent strong winds, any ice that remained on the lakes went out early this week. As the temperatures start warming, the traditional spring spots should start holding panfish. Check those bays, harbors, and shorelines for crappies. Little Jim's Bait (320) 274-5297
Last weekend there were some very limited ice fishing options, but those have quickly come to an end. Shorelines on most lakes have deteriorated and main lake ice has become soft very fast as well. The ice on many lakes is also starting to turn black, especially with the rain early this week....
Anglers were walking on some of the area lakes, but the shorelines have pulled away on most, so you might have to be creative to get on them this weekend. Venture out to Clearwater Lake, Lake Sylvia, Lake John, Maple Lake, French Lake, and Sugar Lake to catch some sunfish and crappies in 5-15 ft.,...
Heading into this weekend, ATVs will likely be the best option to get around. Trucks were being used on many lakes earlier in the week and even though main lake ice remains excellent, some shorelines have started breaking loose. Lake Sylvia, Lake Francis, Pleasant Lake, Clearwater Lake, Indian Lake...
Crappies are still very active at a depth of 25 ft. or more, and if you try Sylvia, Maple, Buffalo and Granite Lakes during low-light times you’ll have much success. You can also fish Clearwater Lake, Lake John, Indian Lake, Lake Sylvia, Maple Lake, and Buffalo Lake for sunfish and a few crappies,...
Granite Lake, Maple Lake, Buffalo, and Indian are the best for crappies, especially at night over 24-30 ft. Clearwater, Lake John, Maple Lake, and Indian Lake are good for catching sunfish at 12-14 ft. If you try Clearwater Lake, Cedar Lake, Buffalo Lake, and Lake Sylvia you can find some good...
Even though it has been bitterly cold, Clearwater Lake, Indian Lake, Maple Lake, Lake Sylvia, Granite Lake, and Lake John have been producing some sunfish in 12-14 ft. and crappies suspended over 30 ft. A few people fishing through the cold have caught some walleye and northern pike, but the...
A few anglers are braving the cold to catch some fish. Crappies at 20-24 ft. and sunfish at 12-15 ft. are being located on Lake Sylvia, as well as Clearwater, Indian, Maple and Granite Lakes. The use of tip-ups and small minnows are successful in catching northern pike at 12-15 ft. on most of the...
Northern pike are still active along the 12-15 ft. weeds on most lakes. Fish Indian Lake, Granite Lake, Lake John, Maple Lake, Clearwater Lake, and Lake Sylvia at 10-15 ft. for sunfish or 18-25 ft. for crappies.
