Fishing in Eagle River

View this terrific fishing video!!


Some of the bigger lakes might have a little ice along the shores but for the most
part it’s open water season which means perch and crappies until May 1st. Perch
are the big deal right now because they are usually the first ones to move up
shallow and spawn after the ice goes out. Just cruise the shore lines with a slip
bobber and a minnow. They will be scattered all over but like spots that have  
downed timber or bulrushes. Couple of the smaller lakes that the ice went out earlier
are already starting to see crappies move up shallow. Small plastics under a slip
bobber like a Kalins crappie scrub or a regular crappie minnow is all you need.
Crappies will hold out on bigger and deeper lakes in the holes that you caught them
over the winter until the water warms up a little more. Temps in the 80’s today and
mid 50’s to low 60’s for the next couple weeks will get the crappies in there pretty
quick but it also means it will push the perch out quick as well so get out there now
while it’s good!
