Went out fishing the Rochester area storm drain ponds last Saturday the 10th. Crappies were hitting worms under a slip bobber quite readily. Caught a sucker as well. Managed to limit out on crappie within 45 minutes.

All rochester lakes have this 10 panfish with 5 can be crappie and you can't catch your limit on one lake and limit out on another the same day. Effort to have better fish and prevent overfishing.

I have fished silver before due to reports of crappie. Never found them but perch were decent sized.

MN DNR FISH LIMITS PULLED OFF WEBSITE SEASONS AND LIMITS—INLAND WATERS continued CRAPPIE Continuous 10 SUNFISH* Continuous 20 (either or combined) *(bluegill, pumpkinseed, green, orangespotted, longear, warmouth, and their hybrids)

IceFishBaby, unless that lake has it's own rules you can keep 20 gill, etc and 10 crappies. They are not counted together, they each have seperate limits. I been having an awesome year in the south metro (Apple Valley, Burnsville, Prior area) and that's what I been keeping on my good days.

I hope I'm right or glad I didn't get busted.

I was out on Silver Creek reservoir yesterday from 10-2 and caught quite a few fish. Only 9 keeper perch and a big gill. No crappies for me but another guy had a few nice crappies on the ice.

If there's any special way to put those crappies on the hook please share.

Probably make it out again Sunday or Monday.

Good luck.

Tried WIllow Creek-north of of the airport. Went from 4-6 and only caught small ones. Some small gills and two small crappie. One guy had about 7 gills on the ice. Remember, limit is 10 panfish per day, only 5 of which can be crappie.

May get out again this weekend-maybe try another spot though. We'll see. Hard to motivate after not one keeper.

Wondering if people are getting out in Rochester.  I know backwaters of Mississippi is fishable.  Want to get out this week.  Weather is not helping out much, but just wondering if anyone is getting out.
