From the sounds of how big they are, I would be fine with just keeping 5 or so that are 12 inches.  I honestly could never keep a crappie over 14 inches unless it was 19 inches or bigger then it is going on wall.  I love big deep water, seems to always produce big fish.  CPR those giants, keep a few sized average fish and will be able to keep doing it year after year.

Wow that is one of the most generous reports I have seen on lake link.  I usually cant get even get close to that specific from guys on messenger :)  Have 1.5 hr drive but very tempting to give it a try tonight or tomorrow morning. I figure they will be in guys frying pans soon if I dont act fast.

The big crappies are in again on the north east side of Williams bay in 8-12 ft of water in front of the beach and east of it. If you have a boat you should already be fishing this spot for the big crappies 12"-16". rarely you get a small crappie.

3' to 4' under a bobber. 

Minnows work but are a waste of time. Use the small berkley gulp minnows and keep your bobber moving slowly. They can't resist it.

As a little boy sitting on Gramps bed the story was told of the 18.75 inch crappie that was on his wall (it had a 18.75 girth) this crappie I was told was a state record for a month ( I never checked that but gramp did not lie) it was 3lb something. That was not the part I remember that part is the way it was caught as when gramp flipped the 14ft rowboat over at 3am on silver lake Wisconsin it was 14 degress and the shoreline had froze he broke ice to get to open water. He fished from 4am till 7am without a bite and as he reached for the pole to go home the bobber slowly sank he set the hook and landed that fish. When I was 8 years old my best friends father would take us to fish of off the piers to catch crappie as soon as the piers where in. I fish that same place now and the results are the same. A lifetime is ment for learning and with how much time I have fished gives me a big pool to remember from, thanks to my grandfather

Went out yesterday with two awesome young men from 7am till noon and it seems as the snow has been with me lately but it has not slowed our bite. We were throwing bobbers in 8 to 14 feet and it did not seem to matter what depth or what color we were using we only dropped anchor twice we did better by slowly drifting around picking them off scattered in dead weeds. The piers are not in yet but the fish are were ended up with crappie, lg bass, bluegill, pumpkinseed and pike they took home a bucket of crappie and released the rest thanks guys for the snow day. The 2017 season is on.
