Tried the pond for crappies this past weekend. Waters a little cold yet surface temp of 47. Waters pretty high. Managed 5 crappies only and a couple of big gills.

Went up to chute pond today. It will be awhile before the ice is totally out. There is some open water right by the dam along shore. Tried there for 2 hours but didn't catch anything. Saw one bass feeding on the top but wouldn't take a top water bait.

Fished Saturday a few hours. 3 small northerns one nice 29" fish. Panfish were tough caught a few small perch.
As for ice 10-12 inches there were about 30 trucks on the lake on Saturday and four wheelers and sleds driving everywhere. Looked like most trucks were accessing at county park next to damn. No one ventured up past snagbay in a vehicle but atv and snow mobiles were.
