1-3-21 Crappie Report


Recommended Posts

We fished MM 1-6 yesterday and found fish to be hanging around main lake docks in the 15-20' range. They seemed to be oriented near the cross bars of docks an the support cables on the wind blown sides. Needed at least 30' of water under the dock to hold fish. They were finicky though. We'd only catch 2-4 per dock even though the graph showed it holding a bunch of fish. 23 keepers was the best we could muster. Bait color didn't seem to matter. I checked several secondary point docks with 25' or more of water, but didn't find much of anything

If anybody wants to whine about the Arig being legal or not in fishing, this live scope is a hell of a lot more detrimental to these lakes fish populations. You’ll never hear “I got one!” Anymore . Of

SO true.  Shame that technology matters more than knowledge, experience, and ability.  Another easy button.

Man your he kinda guy that will dominate when the birds get the face forward sonar. Being good with side imaging is so much harder than learning live stuff.  I need to learn more about side

Is that coming out soon??  Have you heard something?

I'm a tight wad so unless I REALLY gain an advantage by buying something, I usually don't mess with it. Side imaging and the Minnkota Ultrex are two things that I had no problem shelling out $$$ for. Having those two pieces of equipment really helps out a lot. The side imaging got put to work finding the fish and the Ultrex spot lock feature was used so I could fish from the back deck. The wind kept blowing me in to the spot I wanted to fish and without being able to spot lock and fish off the back deck, I would have had a hard time effectively fishing it. Heck, I'm still running a 998 hdsi bird unit that's going on 10 years old. I'm still able to find what I need with it so I haven't bothered to upgrade to a newer mega unit for the cleaner image.

Everyone that did well in our Crappie derby last Sunday caught them by Livescope'ing suspended fish..... basically out on the middle of nowhere.    Big fish caught by Mike Baker was 2lbs. even, and if you wanna know how he fishes you can tune in to his YT channel.  👍

That livescope is the real deal, especially for deep water guys and for crappie fishermen. So expensive though.

Well you might as well sit on all of your entry fees and put them in a jar until they add up to one.....cuz you're wasting your time & money now competing without it.  

Seems to me that the newest Lowrance unit has better bottom separation, which should give you an edge (BASS FISHING) over the Garmin and HB guys.   With the Garmin you can't see fish real close to the bottom very well.
