Right now is the best time of year for crappies other than the spawn in may/june. Off Namakagon island in 30 feet of water 18-24 " off bottom or wherever thye are suspended. Another spot is along HWYD about 300-400 yards past the bridge by Anderson lake. you will also get some walleye mixed in. My uncle goes every year this time of year and he gets alot of fish Good Luck.
