Fished 5hrs today, casting, minnows on slip bobbers, and trolling cranks at various depths. Action was SLOW. Probably should have gone out much earlier, or later in the afternoon. Still, great weather to be out on the water, especially for late July!

You can still catch crappie but you have to work harder for them, most of the active fish I found 3 days ago were in 12-14ft of water, most tight to cover but we got a few suspended fish trolling.

Fished both days Sat and Sun last week, picked up crappies shallow, fished with small minnows and plain hook under bobber about 2 ft down, all around stickups, on the crawler harnesses are you pulling them on bottom bouncers or in line weights, thanks, joe

Hey Nasty you can pull crank baits or pull crawler harnesses. 10 to 12 FOW search with the cranks then fish for them with crawlers. Care to share how you catch the crappie going sat with friends that are not walleye fishermen so will have to go after panfish Hope this helps anyone know how deep and what to use for the crappie. Thanks Blue

Hey guys just looking for a tips for saugeye fishing. I fish for a crappie all the time just trying to mix it up. Is trolling, drifting or jigging better? Just any info would be appreciated.

Fished from 11:30 to 3:30 today. Caught a half dozen nice (10"-12") crappie, four on minnows and one on a wax worm under slip bobbers, and one on a white jig and plastic. All caught in the first hour on the west side of the island immediately adjacent to the launch (trying to stay out of the 15 mph east wind) in about 8 feet of water. All still swimming. First time ever on this lake, but will be back; earlier in the day next time.

After a long day Saturday ... finally managed to find the saugeye in 7-10 feet of water along the weed edges. The key (reinforced on Sunday)... fishing during the light changes (dawn and dusk). Once they were hitting, they were hitting everything (plastic, crawlers, minnows) - at one point, while fishing two rods - had a fish on each rod (both keepers).

Out of curiosity, anyone finding them during the daytime right now? If so, are you willing to share what depth/lure combos.

dream22-i was trying for crappie. never have targeted walleye, only been hitting evergreen for 2 years now but heard walleye/sauger fishing can be excellent.
