Crappies moving in and out of the shallows with weather changes – South East Report

FARIBAULT AREA

You’ll catch perch below the King Mill Dam with minnows on the Cannon River. There had been some crappies caught in shallow water on Cedar Lake last week, but since it cooled down, those fish have moved back into 10 to 12 feet. When the sun shines, the docks around Roberds Lake are holding a few sunfish.

RED WING AREA

The bite has slowed down a bit, at least for numbers of walleyes and sauger on the Mississippi River. The bigger fish have started to bite, which is a good indication that the spawn has started. Anglers continue to do well, just don’t expect those 50-plus fish days at this point, but you can expect bigger fish in the mix. There’s also been a switch to blade baits, hair jigs, and plastic versus minnows this week. The best stretch continues to be a two-mile stretch of river down from the dam in 10 feet or less.
