I fished sunday mornimg from 6am to about 1030. On the sw cribs. The bite immediately was great then slowed about a half hour or so after caught a couple 7-8 inch crappies. Once light came i dropped my marcum camera down and seen dozens of fish xoming and going in schools. There was a group of really good size crappies easily 13-15 inchers that would come by but couldnt get to bit. I never mesured the ice but id say easily 16 inches. All sorts of vehicles and stationary houses on the lake.

Fished over the SW cribs yesterday only caught a few small crappie and gills on spoons tipped with minnow heads. I dropped the camera down to see hundreds of crappie and gills inside multiple cribs, but there wasn't size to them. A number of trucks drove out with permanent shacks...won't be too long before the crib sites look like cities.
Tight lines all!
