Fisharee is this Saturday at Schoeppe's.  I don't have all the details but it should be a hoot.

I was out on evening of 1/3/18 and caught one small crappie in 2 1/2 hours.  Marked a few fish but not interested in biting. 

Hoping that an increase in temp will see more bites.  I feel that the overall crappie and perch bite has decreased over the last couple years.  Going to relocate a couple more times and if nothing improves I'm going to try another lake.

Trucks driving on ice.

Fishing was relatively slow yesterday.  A handful of crappies and gills, one perch and of course a bunch of small white bass.  2 small bass on tip ups. 

Anyone know when the fisheree's will be on Crystal this year?

I have only fished this lake once, and it was in the summer. I had to poke around multiple spots before I got anything. The bay on the west side was good, I remember catching some bass, crappie and bluegill. Hopefully some locals can give you better tips.

I was out last Thursday on the southwest side in 10-12 FOW and saw no fish and had no bites on tipups or jigging. The bottom was virtually weedless everywhere I was. Is this not a good place to fish? I'd love to get on some white bass. 


Fish Lake was locked up but the ice was less than 2 inches. I didn't go out more than a few feet.
