Crappies are in the 11-13 inch range on this small western Isanti county lake. South Stanchfield is located 7 miles east of Princeton on MN hwy 95 then north on Co 15 4 miles. Landing is shallow so a small boat or a roller trailer works best. This lake has a history of severe winterkill but is on a peak year. If you go 1/4 mile south of the public landing you will find some troughs running east to west that hold some decent fish. A 38 inch northern was taken there recently so be ready. Its a long lake with a west protected shore by a high bank so west winds are not to bad. Bring small minnows or worms. Worked for me anyway.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
