FISHING REPORT
2/27/15 1:57 AM CST
Was out Wednesday. Hit the trees and probably caught around 20 crappie. Kept 9 nice crappie ranging from 10 to 13 inches. Bite has been tough and you really have to work the jig just right...................F.P Cool

FISHING REPORT

Ice Depth: 16" Conditions: Sunny
Late report, was out Monday 2/23 fishing with my dad again. Got there at 830. Fished the trees in 32' of water. Had a school of crappies suspended from 30' up to 26', fish would not chase much higher than 24'. Marked a ton of fish, we caught just shy of 30 and kept 7 a piece. Used blue or glow tungsten with glow, orange, or white plastic tipped with a waxie, once again bigger fish hitting the red buckshot tipped with a few spikes. Travel is slow with all the old hard drifts and a few spots you need creepers due to snow melt. GL out there this weekend !

FISHING REPORT
2/22/15 8:50 AM CST
Ice Depth: 16" Conditions: Partly Sunny
Was out yesterday with my dad. Got there at 820 and saw that the creek/trees were very full already. Got set up in 30'+of water on some structure with a school of hop clops hanging around. They would be stacked up from 2` -8` off of bottom and then thin out for a bit then move back in all morning. Water clarity was suprising. Fished with Glow Tungsten jigs with glow plastic tipped with waxie, also fished with buckshot spoons tipped with 3 to 6 spikes. We caught 35 or so Crappies in 4.5 hours. Bigger fish came on the buckshot spoon. We each took home a limit, threw back lots of 8 to low 9 inch fish.When we left the trees were full of people and shanties. Did anyone have any luck last night? Hopefully some Walters ?

I was out last weekend, the snow is packed down and there are trails leading out. Fishing was average. Not bad walking out. Wink

Those were nice Craps FP...saw them in the lot as you were leaving. I don't care what the some say, the lake is good, and well managed. I'm not versed enough on the lake, but each trip I get to know it better. Results are starting to show.

It's always been a heavily fished yet beautiful and well maintained fishery. That being said, some people are only happy when 'throwin shade' on other peoples posts. One would think that they could simply fish elsewhere but apparently they wouldn't have the satisfaction of trying to make others miserable like them :-/

When a guide is only getting 4 decent fish you know the lake is hammered and not worth going to anymore.

Crappie are still hot! Check out the crappie caught yesterday! The bite is extremely lite. They are simply eating the bait and sitting. Make sure you are using a light spring bobber to detect the bite.
