I was looking for walleye today but found some nice crappies instead.  Found them in 20-24 FOW from about 11-17 feet down.  They were chasing some type of schools of minnows.  A cloud would appear on the sonar and surrounding the cloud would be the crappies.  They would just come and go and it was really hard to stay on them.  Only caught about a dozen but that was enough to keep my 10 yo son happy.  I caught one that was 13" and his biggest was 12.5", all males except for one nice female we threw back.  I have never caught them that big on Magnor before and I used to fish this lake hard year round when my grandparents had a cabin on the lake up until a few years ago.  We used both fatheads and crappie minnows on a plain hook with a slip bobber. The bigger fish were caught on the larger fatheads.

Was out for a few hours this morning for the first time on hard water here at Magnor. I went to the middle hump on the southern edge in 19 FOW. I was marking a lot of gills and getting steady bites most of the morning. I was using tungsten glow jigs, white spoon and a black/white/green/red half ant drop. All caught fish, the biggest being around 8-9". We will be back with the wheel house when the ice gets a bit thicker. I did see an F150 drive out to one of the permanent shacks, a few quads and walkers.

How has the fishing been lately...I have noticed quite a few walkers and wheelers out the past couple of weeks. Just wondering how the crappies have been biting?

Heading out here on Friday I think. Any reports? I'm pretty new to the lake.

Thanks!

Went fishing here on Saturday afternoon and caught some gills and perch. People were putting there house out there driving with there trucks. A little bit to early for me. The ice was growing, and was loud. Caught some nice fish, went home with dinner. Heading back there tomorrow morning!

Fished from daylight until 10 am this morning caught around 20 fish but only 4 were decent enough to take home and clean(others were really small perch and gills). 4 out of 4 fish had parasites in the meat or the little orange sacs.. not very appetizing. Crying

Has anyone had any luck on Magnor through the ice the last few years? I used to fish Magnor 3 or 4 days per week years ago, but the last 5 years it seems like there are no northerns left hardly. I know they stocked walleyes these last few years, but haven't heard if anyone is getting any of these fish through the ice. The crappies also seem to have gotten some disease. Many of the ones we caught this summer had those boils on their sides and weren't much for size. Definately not like it was years ago.
