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!!

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
