Fishing continues to improve every day, altho still not as good as it can be this time of year. Still catching fish on stumps and brush along drop offs in 10' to 15' foot of water using jigs. 

I'm not sure how well you'll do off the shore. The water is still too cold for them to be coming in to spawn. There may be some fish on shallow cover feeding. 

We do have a very few days available between now and June. Give me a call to book a day 618-472-4763

Fishing is getting better after all the rain over the last few weeks. The lake has stabilize at 409.35 almost 5 feet above where it was 3 weeks ago. We are catching fish on brush, stumps, and drop offs in 10 to 14 foot of water on jigs.

Crappie are biting, getting them on jigs in 8--12 feet of water near cover. If you are having spring fever give Bob or Nick a call to book a trip. 618-231-1417 or 618-472-4763. Bill and Mike did and they had a pretty good time!

Rend is open and ice free for now. Hopefully we won't get another polar blast. 

Bob went out yesterday and had his 10 over 10", 6 unders and called it a day. He was fishing brush and stumps in 6' to 12' of water with jigs. 

Give us a call if you want to release some cabin fever. 618-472-4763 for Nick or 618-231-1417 for Bob

They might but I doubt it.  I don't think it's going to get warm enough to open anything up very quickly.

Happy New Year Nick.  I've missed your posts on this site recently and the crappie.com site too.  I know its probably hard to find time, especially when you have a lot of trips stacked up.  Do you think the ramps will open later this week with the warmup?  I'm between jobs and have a couple weeks to fish.

Happy New Year to everyone. Rend is 95% frozen. There are only little holes open out in the middle. There are no ramps open at this time. We would like to thank all our clients for a great 2017. We will be running strong again in 2018 and hope to see all our previous clients as well as all our new ones to come. We are already booking a lot of days this year so don't wait to book, call Bob 618-231-1417 or Nick 618-472-4763 to set up your trip!
