Well now that it's walleye season I'll be leaving those poor crappies & gills to recouperate.
So I'll not be coming here to talk with you fine folks and sharing those posts of how the fishing is going up here in da nort country,eh.
We will be back to crappies after 1st ice which is around thanksgiving.
So thanks again for your comments and sharing your stories of your fishing trips.
They were fun to read and I did pick up a few tips in tying too so I feel like Crappie.com was a help to me.

I will stop back from time to time to review your posts and

Thanks again & enjoy your summer!

How's the taste of walleye compare to crappie? I've heard it's pretty good but have never tried it.

I would have to say that walleye is better eats than crappie. ;) :D
If I could eat any freshwater fish, it would be walleye then crappies/gillsperch then catfish and all other's (stripers and pike) (trout are tasty too.)

CK, yea, you can still show off some of those toothies and wallies. :D
And thank you. :cool:

ok then,
Walleyes are good ,but a crappie out of cold water is the best in my book.Even eyes can get a little muddy tasting.
Went out tonight what a way to relax after my dog at 50$ in Kiptails.
Can't tie ,might as well fish.

We caught several stockers and a few bigger ones.
I kept 3 17's for eats.
1/4 oz jig with a 3" shad strapped on working 9-11 FOW at 1.3-1.5 mph did the damage.
We ran into a few boats leaving and they caught a bunch of stockers was all.
The shad rules!
Mayfly hatch is just about done ,then they'll really be hammering the plastics.

Went to the site Grizz,WORLD Class eyes.
You eat them when they get that big,not that this is a hit ,but to me they start to get muddy tasting after they get over 20".
Nice catch.
Early in the year on the riv and in the fall I can run into those hogs. Again very nice fish.

I don't know about anyone else, but I enjoy fishing for just about anything with fins. Crappie are just plain fun to catch and yummy to eat, but I like seeing photos of nice catches in all freshwater species.

Keep the eye photos coming Keith!

You bet they taste great.
I'm all about the action in the end.Anything to fight back is acceptable,but next to crappies out of cold water walleyes can't be beat for dinnerfare.

The pike action and bass has heated up too.

Normally I would agree with you that the bigger fish wouldn't be good eating, but in this case I can't tell the difference between the taste of the 30 inch fish fillets and the 18 inch fish fillets. I have been getting fish like that for over 10 yrs here and I often eat fish in the 25 - 30 inch range and have never had a bad one from Chautauqua. Maybe its because they are eating all my crappie. GGRR Personally it is my opinion that the walleyes have destroyed the crappie population in the lake along with the muskies to a lesser extent.

I fish walleyes mainly in the fall after halloween when the pigs are feeding for winter. The bite is good all the way to ice up, sometimes into January if we have a warm fall. I find most walleye anglers ignore this time compared to spring fishing, but here there is no comparison in numbers and size between spring fishing and fall fishing.

My sister recently sent a local guy to my site because he didn't believe I was getting walleyes like that, and even after seeing the pics he didn't believe it. I just laugh because it happens so much. People go on the lake and get a bunch of 20 inchers during a week of fishing and then I tell them what I get and they just roll their eyes.

About 9 yrs ago I made a video that I have since lost though if I went and purchased a new vcr and went through all my old tapes I might find it, but it was a 2 hr recording of my fall fishing at its best. 2 hours of fishing with not one cast without a hit. 1 30 incher/10 lbs like the one in the pic on my site, one cast with 5 hits and I missed them all (not my finest moment), and a landed muskie. I don't believe any of the fish I caught on the vid were below 25 inches, with most of them being between 27-29 inches, all the same weight range and body shape as those pictured on my site. The older pic on the site was a typical 2 man - 5 fish each limit from that time. They have since reduced the limit to 3 fish, so the new pics have a 2 man limit of 6. I almost always have someone fishing with me when I keep fish. All the single fish pics are released fish from when I was fishing alone.

I fish mainly in the shallows after marauding walleyes chasing bait fish with the 3 hook floating storm thundersticks. These lures have the perfect action and depth for shallow weedy fishing. They have some new colors this year that I'm real excited to try this fall.

Here is my favorite pic from my site. For perspective that is a 4-3/8" thunderstick and a 40 size quantum Kinetic reel on a 7 feet St Croix premier rod.

I believe you Grizz & if you have that many breeders hurting that lake,well eat up son!
I've been beat up for talking about eating fish on other sites. Some folks feel you should release everything. Well I do let a lot of fish go. I can only eat so many. I was not trying to be demeaning & I do not think you took it that way either.I just thought the smaller ones taste better and not that I fish your lake I am somewhat concerned about the breeders. Not knowing all of the specifics I'm in no place to make any judgements.
I was just asking is all.
I'll say it again,you've got some world class eyes your able to get at...for sure SOOOWE! Here piggy,piggy!
Dang!

Yeah, I didn't take any offense, just letting ya know what a cool time I have fishing for them in the fall. Those years around when I took the video I'm sure I was landing over 1000 fish each fall, but that surge is paste. The crappie aren't coming back though. :eek: :( I am getting around 150-200 in the fall now, but I'm still getting some real pigs, just now we get some smaller ones in the mix now. Though we consider small ones anything under 25". :D I'd give em all up if we could have the crappies back the way they were.

Sweet walleyes and pics Skeeter. Those look like northern waters. Where is it?

I thought I'd throw in this pic of a couple walleyes my mom caught about 10 yrs ago. Sampson the great sure is interested in them. She's not just a good crappie angler. :D Thats a yard stick between them. Not a whole lot of it stickin out past their noses.

Lady Evelyn Lake in northern Ontario, near New Liskeard/Hailebury. We spend a week on Garden Island. Four years ago I had never fished for Walleye, and thought the price for a week was a bit steep, but this will be our fourth year going up there, and we start looking forward to the trip every year on our way home. Anyone interested, check their web site at http://www.garden-island.com

Talk about top notch, all inclusive service! And the fishing gets better every year. The lake is managed VERY well. We boat into the island, 17 miles from the pickup point. Nothing but seven days of Eating, Sleeping, and Fishing. Funny that's Skeeter's catch phrase.

Anyone wanting any additional information, just PM me. Norm and Val are excellent hosts and really know how to run a fish camp.
