Jordyn - go to the "Outdoorpro" store - top of the page - and order anyone of those crappie/sunfish kits - I have found that they are terrific lures and are very reasonable. I ordered a ton of this stuff and caught buckets of fish with them.

That being said - don't ignore plastics of all kinds either. Plastics are my new favorite.

Picking one would be hard, but my go to last year was Genz worms tipped with plastics (Wedgees or Nuggies) or even eurolarva.

1/16 oz red glow frostee spoon with waxies or a minnow head. Since most of my crappie fishing is done at night, this is always rigged on one of my rods.

Something new this year, but I've had great luck with so far, is the Bro Bloodworm. It's been my go-to lure so far and will continue to be as far as I can tell.

Rstso's are one of my favs, also Manards Flutter-bug. They have alot of flash and can call in fish from a distance.

I'm looking forward to fishing the Bro Bug - they look like a lot of fun to use. It's a confidence bait right out of the box, with that long skinny tail.

Marmooska tipped with waxworm or wigglers. Easy to see on the Vexilar, catches scads of bluegills. I did pick up some of the new Bro offerings today at Cabela's.

mine is quickly becoming the bloodworm. Also try and find the smallest red glow forage minnow that you can and then find the smallest treble hooks possible and put them on. The crappies love nailing those spoons and with the tiny trebles you can get the sunnies going too.

#10 Demons in all colors for sunnies and crappies in the Duluth Area.

For the bigger more aggressive slabs on Lake of the Woods, Kabatogama, Namakan, Rainy Lake, Sand Point, Crane, Vermillion, etc. its all about the jigging spoons. Brand and color depends on the day.

    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
