I owned a lot out there for 19 years its been a long time sense Iowned it but I found the crappies supended Out in front of broken bow bay. In front of lots 163 164 165 166 out in 30 ft of water 15 ft suspended. And off grenral grant point facing point left hand side same depth.
MOON PHASE (5%)
0° - 5° F
Was out this morning fished 6 different spots all with brush 18-20 fow and only marked a few fish with no bites. Is it possible do you think the crappies are roaming around in the main lake basin? I have caught them in the summer suspended in open water chasing schools of minnows up in Hawthorne but they don't seem to be around that area either let me know what you are thinking?
The Ice is really thick pretty much everywhere I have been this past week but I have been having trouble fInding and catching fish. Not sure if it is the weather or me being in the wrong places.... getting pretty frustrated with the fishing out here so I might try Beckmans up by Monroe WI.
MOON PHASE (84%)
11° - 15° F
Heading out to the north end right now and will post results. Was out yesterday for a couple of hours at the north end and did not catch anything. Still looking for some structure.
