Crow/Nestor/Rainy Fishing Report.

Recommended Posts

Well here it is just like I promised...My dad and I went up to crow on saturday for a trout/crappie/walleye combo trip. The temps with the wind was flat out cold on saturday, I ended up getting frostbite on my chin when we were on crow and the holes kept freezing up, to the point where you couldn't really fish outside. Graphed tons of trout...I have never graphed that many trout in one area ever. They however were not biting. We managed two hits. My dad missed his clean after about 10 minutes in the water and I had mine follow it up until 8 feet below the ice and smack it. I had it on for about 6 or 7 minutes and it got off. It was wrapped around my transducer so it was a lose/lost situation. White tubes were the best producer. Almost all of the trout wouldn't chase the bait more than 4 feet, definately not a good sign.

At 11:00 we packed up and headed to nestor. The crappies were really moving around alot and were in a negative feeding mood. Downsizing to the smallest crappie tube I had in my box was the ticket and very little motion. We did end up with 18 crappies and 2 walleye it didn't end up too bad, especially since the crappies were all 12"-13".

34' was our best depth at nestor.

Rainy on Sunday was a different story as well. We went for a 15 mile snowmobile ride up into the back country and drilled a bunch of holes...The first spot didn't pan out so we went on about another 1/2 mile and found 30' of water off of a point and a feeder creek and immediately marked suspended fish. We ended up catching about 70 crappies for three guys in five hours...not great fishing, but most of the crappies ran 11.5"-12.5". We only had one that was 14". It didn't matter what we through down there, but a green and black tube seemed to have worked the best.

Can't wait to get up there again in a month and hopefully the weather will be warmer(it already is...figures as soon as I left...) and the trout will be biting better.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing Everyone!!

    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad. 
    • You should get the 30 amp power cord if you don't have one already. You can use the 30 amp power cord adapter(30 amp female to 15 amp male) for home use. Otherwise when at the campground plug the 30 amp power cord into the 30 amp receptacle.  Now your set for any situation.     Your 20 amp receptacle is protecting the wire from receptacle to breaker panel. Besides running the AC, your running a refrigerator, 110v receptacles, and convertor.  A 16 gauge extension cord is no good.

      Total Cost: $3,400
    • I did see Menard's had the 0 Degree when I was in there last night.  Not sure what kind of tip connection you may have though?  A last resort if you have a Dremel tool is to try and auger it out with one of their metal tips?  But that may be a long-many Beer day! 🤤
    • I feel like if the power washer works, it's going to be the easiest and most fun way of removing that stuff.     $7 on Amazon.

    • its a ice castle ac unit; i believe the running watts are 1200-1400; nothing else would be running off this outlet; and i believe i purchased a 12guage cord to keep it plugged in to maintain the deep cycle battery and to provide power.   this also raises another question then... am I ok using a standard (16 guage perhaps?) extension cord to connect to the power source at campsites? If not, I should probably replace this...
    • Please don't do this! I have no problem running my camper ac off a 20 amp outlet!
    • You can but it would be much easier if you had some help. Biggest thing is to open the clamps up so it can sit on the boat quicker and give your arms a break.  I swapped out an 18HP for a 35HP and it was like trying to carry a 100lb sack of potatoes. Got it done but heavy. Today I would not even think of doing it myself but back then I was a little more hard headed. I am also assuming its a tiller with no controls to hook up. I would guess it will be around 125lbs according to Yamahas site.
