Made it out this past weekend around Bemidji to go after some slabs. Fished from noon til around 4 and had some pretty decent fishing (best around 2:30). Never pounded them for an extended period of time, but had some 20 minute stretches where they really seemed to bite. Maybe would have had better luck if I could have stayed til dark. Plastics and waxworms seemed to work best, but also had some luck with a buckshot tipped with a minnow head with the bigger more aggressive fish. Fun day of fishing, and had multiple fish getting close to the 14in mark. Most seemed to be around 12in with a handful of smaller ones mixed in. All in all had a blast out there with the nice weather.

You said you've used plastics for crappies. What plastics did you try? I have heard the impulse plastics by northland are the ticket. Sure wish you would have said what lake you were fishing. Wouldn't have been Turtle would it?

I mainly used northlands purple bloodworm actually. Just went and bought a couple other colors today since it seemed to work very well. Tipped it with a waxworm when they would chase but not bite and that seemed to trigger the bite a little better at times. Wish I could help you out with the name of the lake but I can tell you it wasn't turtle. Love to get away from the crowds so I do my best to keep things quiet. Hope the report helped!

And for good reason ;) he wasn't fishing a big lake like red lake or Bemidji. Small lakes can get ruined quickly..

I agree that people can get a little rediculous about not sharing their hot spots but like eyecrazy said, small lakes can turn into a village quickly via word of mouth.

When we went to school there we found a lake that produced great numbers and good size. One roommate opened his mouth to a lot, of people. Long story it was a city out there for the year and was fished out after that.

Happens way too often, especially for someone to put online.. Put your work in and you will be rewarded.
