Excellent crappie gotem

I was checked last year by the conservation police. I was solo and had two tip ups and a pole and they stressed having only 3 fishing devices. I grew up on CL and have been fishing it for 35+ years and, as far as I know, its always been 3 lines. You definitely have to pay attention to size regs and bag limits, as they have changed throughout the years and are different than state laws.

Was out on CL thurs night and may have left two of my tip-ups by mistake. one was a bone style and the other a standard. PM me with any info.
Had a couple pike and small walleye. Fished 4-7pm. ice was 6 inches.

Fished 2-530pm west end no hits. Moved around a lot checking ice conditions. Ice on west end had about 5 inches,some areas more. Lots of slush so wear waterproof boots. There were about 20 people out there. I did venture a little way from west end found 2.5 inches of crap ice. Be careful and good luck!
A little help if possible please. If anyone is ice fishing the West end Friday the 23rd, could you possibly post the ice conditions at whatever depth you are fishing? Hoping to go early the next morning but the air temps are making me wonder.

Fished with Jeff from 1:30 to 7pm. Slow overall, caught a dozen average size gills in 5-6ft of water on waxies and Chartreuse/orange fat boy jig. Crappies started showing up at 5pm..got 7 nice ones on same set up. Crappies bit best away from the lantern, i was just using a headlamp and fish would come in 2 ft off bottom. Only 1 crappie on a minnow. Fished west end near boat ramp.
