We ended up with 3 crappies yesterday ourselves. I think we are still a bit early. The lake was a mess. Looked like ice-out with all of the dead plants. Maybe a week or two more and things will heat up.

I gave my 3 to a guy at the launch. He had about 8 medium gills. Maybe early for them as well???

BP station just up 51 from the launch has a good selection of bait (Crappie Minnows, Fatheads, Shiners, Suckers, Leeches, Crawlers, Redworms, Waxies, Spikes). I've had problems in the past with bait dying quickly, but if you tell them that, they'll clean the tanks, and the bait will be excellent. Just let them know if you have a problem. They've been more than reasonable in the past. They also have a good selection, and consistent supply.

Liquor Store on the west side of 51 also carries bait. Typically of very good quality, but selection and quantity can be hit or miss.

Just my observations. Only two I'm aware of in close proximity.

Shot my new laser thermometer at the water over by Babcock on Sunday. Registered just shy of 40. Not sure it is entirely accurate. Buoys are in at Babcock. Not many boats out yet with the crumby weather. If the forecast holds (not likely) I may try to get out this weekend.

Babcock & Fish Camp leave their piers in year-round. City of Madison piers on the Madison lakes (for the main launches) should all be in.
