Fished 6-1030 on pistakee bay for crappie. All my crappie were caught close to the bottom mixed in with sheephead early. Sheephead kept me busy 8-10. 5 crops went home with me. Caught a nice white bass around 10. Caught my first ice smallie at 1015ish and called it quits on an exciting note. She was 20" and 4-5lbs. Great fight.

Fish are there but just roaming. They didn't seem to be in the usual pattern.

Crestliner1,

I don't think there are any minnows/bait shops in McHenry anymore. The closest that would be on your way would be Smitty's on McCollum Lake Rd. in WonderLake. According to their Facebook page they open at 6am. Not sure but I believe Dave's in CL opens later. next choice would be one up by the Chain.

May see you out there!

Fished today with Jimmy out of oak park from 7:15 to 1:30. It was a sheep head fest! Jimmy caught 9 crappies on a Northland silver colored spoon with spikes. Slow day overall, fish constantly on the vexilar until around 12:30, then single fished marked after that. Fished in 15-18 ft of water. Looked like a group out further got into a school of stripers when we left. Ice at 7 inches.

I was at Famous Freddies 2 weeks ago, closed and posted "No Parking, towed at owners expense. Not sure where to park for access to Pistakee other than Oak Park
