We arrived at a small lake near Fergus Falls, MN just before 2pm so our fishing time was limited to a few hours of daylight. Having never fished the lake before, we set up near the crowd on a drop-off from 10 to about 20 FOW. The fishing was slow in the first spot which prompted a move slightly deeper into the basin which was about 25 feet deep. As soon as I drilled my first hole, I marked a school of suspended crappies as well as several fish near the bottom on my Marcum. We set up shop on the basin and caught fish every minute from about 3:30pm to sundown. As is usually the case, bigger bluegills were near the top of the school with smaller ones near the bottom so electronics were key to targeting those bigger fish. We could have stayed as long as the bite continued, but as daylight was quickly fading we decided to make our way off the lake. My day was capped off by a dinner plate-sized crappie on a jigging rap.
