Crappie fishing is almost always erratic out here. They always seem to move in schools and not hold to structure in spring. It's fairly typical. They will look for warmer water. It is fairly typical to find them moving around areas of warmer water, but it never seems consistent to me. Gonna be a little bit as most of the lake has a fair amount of ice on it still. We're running about 2-3 weeks behind last year, aka more of a normal spring. A warming trend is supposed to be starting after this weekend.
Any good places for Crappie fishing from shore this time of year? Some wood structure to hold the heat? Can you walk along the shore on the north side rail road tracks? That area would probably be rocky and heated?
A truck with a 52 year male broke through the ice near Hickory Pt. Rd. and that person was pronounced dead at the scene. Truck was found early this morning approximately 20 yards off shore. Time to put away ice fishing equipment.
