Nicely done Jim... as ALWAYS! You certainly have this water down to a science. Glad to read you found some time to get OUTSIDE! Was on the ice a couple of weeks ago... did "ok". Took the Nikon for a walk last weekend (no poles)... did even better. Majestic at it's best

Cool

Finally able to get out to the lake....been way too long...work had us pulling 7-10 hour days since thanksgiving...whew glad that ended...now concrete season is here and they want to go full bore on that.... Crying...walking was a breeze on Saturday...no-snow and smooth as glass...we covered a lot of ice catching crappie at every spot we checked...found small perch to be near bottom...on good spots once the bluegill turned on we left...they're more aggressive than the crappie and didn't have the patience to wait for the crappie to turn back on....we made it to the road bed mid-day and the bridge was full....checked the first set of holes and found it too stained for my liking ..went to clearer water ...met a great group of guy's and we hammered crappie for awhile....headed back to where started the day a caught a few more nice slabs before calling it a day....over 80 fish between coach and I...brought home a few for dinner...(noticed baby bluegill or crappie again in their bellies)..used to seeing brown mush or shad...also saw the resident bald eagle to start our day....what a majestic site!!!

They may not be stocking them, but they are in there. I was out a week and a half ago, and I caught about thirty -five 5" to 6" perch. And, no, they were not small walleyes. I did get some nice under the limit crappies too along the road bed. Cool

Fished the road bed from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. yesterday. Ice is solid seven inches. Lots of noise from the lake. Sounded like she was making more ice. Fishing was slow. Saw a few guys out by the deep trees, and talked to some who were coming in as I was leaving. Fishing was slow! Lots of dink perch and 1 small crappie. Minnows, waxies, and spikes. Nothing seem to work. Cool Wink

Was here on 1/24/16. Ice was about 8". Fished the cribs by the camp ground with little success. Seen only a few crappie pulled out of a hole next to ours and small pearch all day. Seemed like a tough bite that day.

Ice Depth: 7"
Went out yesterday and couldn't wait to get out to those deep trees. Walked out and checked a few spots and quickly realized I wasn't marking anything but shad. So I moved to several more spots and probably caught 30 or so crappie. I kept 10 with most in the ten inch range and one at 12 inches. All and all a pretty productive day. Ice was 7-8 inches....... F.P. Wink
