Started about 7, ended about noon. It was slow until about 10:30 then it really picked up. Got my limit but a lot of work. All crappies but one. Bluegill on bottom, crappie about 4-5 ft. up.

Live on lake been fishing the old road that runs through about the center of the lake. Decent Blues and Crappie but nothing in abundance. Any other good spots to try? Or type of bait? Any info would help. Hope ice holds up for the weekend having some friends up to ice fish, this weather might ruin that.

I tend to keep smaller ones than most people, and actually i keep the really small ones and just use for cut bait. If we only keep big ones, the lake will only have little ones. It is also hard to get 12-inchers if they are taken out at 9". Just my opinion and that is how i fish. They all taste the same. I don't know if you have ever heard of Chuckholding. It is an interesting read that most people have never heard of (see link below). As you know, there is an overpopulation of little bluegills right now and a shortage of the larger males (easy targets during spring fishing when they are guarding the spawning nests). Same with the crappies. We are also suffering from a diminishing natural shoreline with trees, vegetation and bugs(i.e. fish food) close to the water, but that is a different story for a different day.

Hey there lsfishclub, Boy you must of been in the right place at the right time to catch 40 keepers out of 65 fish caught.What where the size of the keepers? We caught maybe 25 fish friday with only 4 keepers.Not much size to bluegill and crappie,But we tend to only keep bluegills over 8-9" and crappie over 10".Letting the little ones to grow up.Will be hitting ice after i get home from work on friday. Good luck and tight lines. Nice CAT'S Tull

The short answer on the night fishing is a few people ruined it for everyone. Dead minnows laying on the ice, cigarette butts, garbage on the ice in the mornings and no lake security at nights were some of the reasons. I saw a spot one time with a whole bunch of empty peanut shells. Maybe not a big deal to some, but shows a lack of respect and we don't need that IMO. You can fish at night with the welcoming member all you want.
