I was out this Saturday, the 19th of May. Met some folks. My trailer broke and several folks helped me - thanks a again if you read this.
Had a crazy fishing day. First fish of the day - a decent white crappie. As it struggled on the way out, a 40" musky came and grabbed him. I know the musky was 40 inches because I was able to put him in the boat after a long fuss. On Ultralight and 6 lb line and 1/64th trout magnet. If you want to see the full fight, it is on my youtube channel : i_fish
Crappie fishing was the same. Small crappie is not hard to find. I counted about 60-70 again, all but 8 were released, even the 8 were not quite keepers but some of them had bleeding gills and I knew they would die. I do mostly carp fishing and I can't say I know much about crappie (or anything other than carp), but I already think that it is pointless to fret about jig or lure colors or shapes. When u find the crappie, they will eat anything. I keep testing colors and can't tell the difference.
