Same old same old crappies are still very hot over the tops of the weeds. The only difference today was my better crappies came deeper. It is definitely warm out there. Thank you Larry for the sunscreen. I haven't finished loading my new boat yet something I forgot you were a lifesaver.

going in I came across to guys in a bass boat I thought  one fell out ..when I got closer I could see they were jumping off the boat having a good time . Must have been too hot for them ...or a new way of fishing ...tight lines to alll....stay cool

 got out this afternoon with a nice couple from Colorado. Fish the edges tossing a jig and plastic. As long as you were moving the boat you were catching fish. I will say the crappie bite is hot.

Thanks Fin finder and Hero, I really enjoy your reports.  Coming down Friday and hopefully the Crappie bite is still on.  Haven't had much luck this year with panfish but plenty of LM bass.  I to give my fish away to those who can't get on the water.  To all those with comments just remember if within the limits established by the DNR then there is no issue, until changes are made that you deem necessary.  Enjoy the sport because life is short....

Not to stir the pot ..the crappie fishing s still hot ...fish are in 8 to 10 feet ...small jigs and plastic..and to set the record straight I give away 90% of my fish ...to older people that aren’t able to Fish anymore ...or some don’t fish but love fresh fish .... and friendly  neighbors ... as long as I can make some people happy by giving them some fish ....I will  continue to do  so  ..  maybe some day I won’t be able to Fish anymore .....and somebody will bring me some fish ...tight lines to all ....

Not only do these guys catch fish they pretty much are telling you how and where. Does not appear to be breaking any laws.  Fin likes to take out people fishing,  he is not greedy neither is hero. Pan fish are for eating, and eat we will.

I saw that post and wondered how long it would take before the tears started falling. I think if all you whining about keeping fish didnt keep any and let the people that want to keep as many as the law allows it will be a wash you can pat your self on the back and we'll pat our full belley

I don't understand the limits either. The same people that post about all they keep will be the ones complaining that the quality of fishing has gone down.

Until the rules change there isn't anything anyone can do.

A little common sense would go a long way.

Why are we once again passing judgment on someone who is not breaking any laws? Go to the DNR meetings and work to get the limits changed. And, take it to the forums. Have a wonderful day.
