Found the crappies

Recommended Posts

Today turned into a great day fishing. Drilled two holes and whalah, crappies! We fished from 8-1 and caught lots of crappies. They were in 12 fow and suspended at 5-7 fow. They were hitting anything you threw at them. Sure feels good to have raw, cold, wet hands from catching fish. This was on Lake Onalaska. Cannot reveal exactly where though, LOL. We were in the most obvious place, but only one person set up near us and left after 30 minutes. Must have got frustrated from our laughing everytime a nice fish came up or when a fish spit the jig at the hole. I did get a really wet arm reaching for a very nice crappie. Now it is back to work for the week, shucks.

I was beginning to question my skills at icing gills and crappies, LOL. It has definitely been very tough lately. The good thing is, the cold snap we will be getting, will make the lake a lot more accessible by vehicle. The lake is pretty good sized and that prevents people from getting to some prime spots unless you want to walk a long ways. The good thing is it is still early and we have a lot of fishing time left.

The lake is still producing fish, just have to search for them sometimes. I was out on Wednesday and found the craps in the deep water areas, but most were small. My best guess is try the deep channels that are in the lake and go from there. The gills are still in the shallower water with some of the bigger ones hanging in the deep water as well. I cannot say for Lawrence. I went by there on Wednesday also. Not a lot of people fishing, but there were a few people scattered. I have heatrd they are biting better there later in the day. I am sure either place will be a good place. Good luck.

    • and a couple pretty good running backs too!!!!!!!!   bring on the Tide!!!!!!!!!!
    • not unless you can find an old lakemaster garmin compatible chip and if your garmin can indeed read it; otherwise you can get garmin's version
    • Freekying yeaa!  😃 About time. 3 3/4 of a game without as much as a field goal with two of the best receivers in the NFL would say this is a good move! 🤨
    • I actually have the opposite  Problem of keeping the ice solid. After about two weeks of fishing the same spot, The front tip-up is floating on water.  I now bank the back 3/4 of the house only To regulate the trapped air underneath.             
    • Does anyone know if you can put a Lakemaster chip in a dash mount GPS. I have a Garmin dash mount and it would be nice and handy if I could do that.   Thanks
    • Vikings Fire Offensive Coordinator John DeFilippo December 11, 2018 at 11:16 am   MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Vikings’ offense struggled against the Seattle Seahawks on prime time television Monday evening – and it looks to be enough to cost the offensive coordinator his job.   On Tuesday, the team confirmed they have relieved John DeFilippo of his duties as offensive coordinator.   Kevin Strefanski has been elevated to interim offensive coordinator and will handle play-calling duties, the team said. The Vikings lost to the Seahawks 7-21 Monday evening, and were nearly shut out. The Vikings scored their only touchdown with 1:10 remaining in the game.  
    • oh the ice is good.....on the 2 lakes i hit. one had 10 inches the other 12!!!!!!!!
    • I just started her up and let her run a bit yesterday.  Wouldn't get out fishing until all the Holiday stuff is over in a few weeks but then the ice should be good and more snow hopefully.  Thanks for the reply over yonder! 🙂
    • What type of solution?    Not it directed at you personally but I find it amusing that by and larger hunters and fishermen are the most anti government anti regulation types yet are the first to overharvest due to lack of self control and then are the first to Beyotch when the DNR doesn’t stop it.     
    • WELL i was just up in  that country over the weekend. maybe 3-4 inches in the woods might be 2 inches of snow on the lakes!!!!!!
