on the main lake or the river? I don't think there is much at all for crappies on superior, however the st. louis has them.

you are going to have to put your time in and find them for your self, most wont tell you.

the show I watched I would guess they must have been on the southern part of superior but I could have sworn he said they were on the north but it was over a year ago that I saw that show...I know it was a John Gillespie show though

Ozzie I don't miss a Gillespie show, I've seen that show too, and i'm pretty sure he was on the north end of it somewhere on the Canadian side, Haataja was his guide and I believe he said this is where his family vacationed all of the time. It was on the canadian side and those were some SLAB CRAPPIES!!!!

I did a little more research on it and I was wrong, it was on the Michigan side of lake Superior, Keweenaw bay to be exact. Those were some jumbo's. I love it when that guy goes nuts over big fish.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
