Long/Cricket Creek Crappie

Recommended Posts

Last January I had several real good crappie trips in Long and Cricket Creeks, based on reports from Phil Lilley and others here. I haven't heard anything yet this year - is anybody catching any crappie?

I launched at the SK bridge today and noticed that yesterday someone had cleaned maybe half 6-7 crappie up to 12" and one walleye that looked about 22", so to answer your question I guess somebody is getting a few on TR.

Obviously don't know where, how or on what they were caught on. My guess would be minner fishermen on a bluff end. I saw a few of those out there to and they seemed pretty contentedly parked in the same spots for quite a while.

Water temp still ~49 around SK. Has cleared up real well.

skmo; did you catch any bass today? i went friday. only 2 keepers, one almost 80 ft deep.

I caught a few, half dozen or so but it was not that great. I could easily find shad all over the middle of the lake and in cove mouths in 50-100' of water. Shad were at all depths but there seemed to be very few larger fish hanging around and most would look but not bite. Probably should have gone back and checked in some coves, but I figured with the water temp stable and as many shad as were in mid-lake there would be some fish hanging around and I have yet to find any great numbers of shad past the cove mouths. Kind of clueless actually. Talked with 3 other boats and nobody was doing any good. One guy came up and told me there was a boat fishing Friday the exact same spot as I was in (75-90' of water with plenty of shad only 20-30' deep) and they had caught several legal KYs throwing chartruse rooster tails. Whatever. They were shallow enough that I had been fan casting a grub and spoon but no takers.
