dream-  you got a depth you found the crappies in?  Heading just south of you this weekend and I'm guessing 12-15 feet or so in the lake we're on but further direction would help.  Thanks.

LL-look for bays that have reached 50 degrees. We were fishing a very popular bemidji lake and they just started moving in. If your heading north I'm guessing your timing is perfect.

That's how you get the family to not overstay their welcome! Invite em over for T-bones and a crappie fry, but once supper's over, all ya got is the Champagne of Beers and Hamm's... "Well, would ya look at the time!" Things kinda take care of themselves at that point.:lol:

Great pile of papermouths!!!! Nothing like a good crappie early Spring bite. Best time to sneak into those warming shallows and get some. Looks like a great meal and drink to me. Smurfy just don't know good Minnysoda beer. :grin:

If Hamm's is like it was back in the day, no thanks.   I couldn't drink that even as a college student.  They did the best brewery tours with swag and food and all the beer we could drink.  But it was still bad beer and I barely could drink one, from the tap at the brewery.   No wonder they went under.  

Who brews them now?  

However a pbr or grain belt or even a "city beer" (old style) or a green hornet once in a while is ok.  But not Hamms, Coors, or Olympia (do they still brew Olympia?)

The beer company next to it.  Miller.  Hamms won the 2010 Gold medal for specialty style lager, ya Delbert. ;)

Looking forward to slabs like that.  Been fishing the north shore for loopers.  I would take that Bemidji style surf and turf over any other anytime.  Hamms is one of the beers that gave me a headache.  Maybe I drank too much of it LOL.  Glad to see it's still around though.  Drank a lot of Fitgers back then.  good luck.

    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .

    • How in the world did this advertisement not get zapped?
    • Look great but the page is horrible, anybody figure out the price? The one in the video looks like a buzz bait, do they come in different tails or all the tails come with?  Anybody speak Japanese?
