wanttofish, yes it is marked. There is an area of the lake surrounded with buoys marked "Do Not Anchor". This area and the the surrounding area is where most crappies have been targeted. I was out last Saturday with my dad and a friend and we did very well. Most crappies were caught just off of the bottom using a plain hook or jig head tipped with a minnow. For jig heads, I was using a 1/32 pink , although I've heard that white works better. My last few times out, the bite was really strong early in the morning and then will slow around noon. It picks up again around 2pm into the early evening. Good luck and tight lines!

It was a chilly start to the morning but paid off in the end. I trolled for eye from 6:30am til about 9am, caught 2 decent eyes and a 32" northern. Picked up my Dad and caught enough crappies over 10" for a decent fish fry. The onslaught of crappies is still on!! I've never seen this many boats at this time of the year especially with these temps. Good luck and tight lines.

Crappie are deep. We had success in 17-18 fow fishing a foot off the bottom. Most came on 1/16 oz chartreuse jigs tipped with minnows.

Or, more likely some not-so-fresh water crabs.

We caught some crappies last weekend in the rain and the weekend before in the wind, both times in the AM. The no anchor zone buoys have been pulled, there are a few helix buoys still out there. I'd avoid anchoring a couple hundred yards south of Maple Pt

wanttofish, Fox Lake will still be pretty busy this weekend. Finding panfish will be pretty easy, just follow the group of boats packed together. There is a part of the lake where you can't anchor because of the underwater air pipes. Crappies have been targeted in this area this past year and have done very well. Diesel1, this cooler weather hasn't slowed down the crappies at all.

Has anyone been out recently? With the weather cooling and wind wondering if the crappie bite has slowed. Hoping to take my father out to catch a meal or two.

Thanks

My buddy and I are planning on fishing Fox Lake on Saturday. Will be my first time there. Looking for panfish and/or walleyes. Any suggestions would be very helpful. Thanks.

Lots of nice bigger pike seemed to have moved up into the shallower cabbage weeds. Only managed to hook a couple of the smaller ones but had a lot of nice ones in the mid 30's slashing at or rolling over large spinnerbaits. Bass don't seem nearly as active as they were a few weeks ago, perhaps because of the cooler weather? Fish were all over the lake, back in the government area and the shallower weedy parts of the main basin.

Braved the wind, rain, fog, steel and lead shot to bring home 6 slab crappies and threw a few more back. We missed as many as we caught. My partners konked out due to the cold, so we only fished 2 hrs. Drifted the deep water with various live baits, wax worms and minnows worked the best.

Just taking a chance... fished yesterday, and met a gentleman at the boat landing around 10:30 from Milwaukee. After we talked, he gave me a few of his home made plastics to try.

If you are this person, and see this, please drop me a pm so I can touch base with you.

Thanks

P.S. Spent all afternoon fishing, but it was worth it. All panfishing.
