We just got back last night from up there the fishing was good most of the crappies that I caught we're an average of 10 to 13 inches and I was using slip bobbers with minnows from 5 ft down to 10 ft. And I also caught two 20in walleyes I caught those while fishing for crappies just east of The Sandbar by the house that's for sale all the other time I fished out in front of the bear claw Resort and in a Cove across from The Sandbar

Will be headed up the last week of July with family.  How is the crappie fishing?  Usually drift using jigs.  Anyone having any luck?  If so where at?

Still a lot of bass?

Northern hitting at all?

Fished for a few days last week.  Perch are biting out in the mud flats. Didn't catch any crappies. Weeds are not as bad as in the past.

We’ve been coming to lake for 30+ years. We’re on lake now staying at chit chat. Fishing slower than previous last 3-4 years. Seems to be a little behind schedule. Larger crappie we are catching are REAL NICE SIZE!! Catching some small ones as well. Kept 15 one evening, 14 last night and 10 tonight. Water is very clear. Guessing it’s from the late ice. Locals swear crappie have spawned but large ones we are catching full of eggs. We strictly jig fish for crappie, no bobber with jig either! Catching on1/16oz jig with black silver glitter twister tail grub. To fish this bait you need your spoolFULL of no heavier than 6lb test line. This allows you to cast the light jig and feel it. Most if not all caught between 7:30-9:00pm at far north end of lake over the top of weeds in 10-12ft of water. Weeds about 4-5ft below surface of water, fish slow over top of weeds. Don’t know about minnows but suspect jigs are better, cover more water. Fish bite much better with Light chop on the water.
