Bemidji Area Report ( Crappies)

I was fishing in about 26' of water today, nearly every Crappie was suspended around 15', and they were on fire. It was one of those times that you wait for, although the fish were small it was nonstop from 330-500. Kept my 10 eaters which were all right near 9" which was the only downside if there was one.

Every fish was on the small Salmo (glow). The hooks on these things are by far the sharpest hooks Ive ever used. Most of the time I had a minnow head on but I caught many without too, they were drilling it like Red Lake Crappies do at times.

Okay, I think I fixed all the typos I never proofread can ya tell...

I actually had 2 Crappies on at once, one on each treble. Of course I was thinking "finally a pig".


If your really bored, watch this video. I tried to do a cell phone video, it was a pain to try and shoot without dropping the phone in the drink. Disregard the swings and misses, and horrible commentary. I may be worse than Brian Gumble doing a football game. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UlpTSLHTwHQ

Nice job on the crappies! I have yet to try the mini Chubby.

Sounds like you found a very aggressive batch of fish.

What type of flasher / graph are you using there?

The vexilar keeps giving me headaches so I am thinking of changing up for the perm.

Thanks
