Took our small fishing boat out on Sunday to see if it would run. We fished the northwest area of the lake. I got a nice 12 inch crappie on a slab rap. Boats around us were catching crappies on slip bobbers and minnows. 10-13 feet of water fish close to the bottom.
Saw one group out on a back bay off the main lake, but that was the only group we saw anywhere on the ice. Open water everywhere. Nearly 100% of the south end of the lake is open. Maybe with the cooler weather, but very dangerous now
I fished it Wednesday and had current where I typically drop lines. With the rivers opening up the water got "dirty" I would guess that hasn't changed. Marked a lot of fish, no takers I would wait it out instead of forcing a fishing trip.
