Yep, them Fowler crappie can be hit or miss. Lake is two min from my house. Sometimes find em in an hour and catch a couple meals worth. Other days I have searched for hrs and got not a one. They are in there somewhere, I guarantee you that. Early spring they can be in the swamp back by the cemetery. Summer the suspend at 20 ft a lot off church point. This time of the year they can be anywhere

Actually, Smokeys has been sold the the Pewaukee Dept of Recreation, who has leased it out to a private concern. They will again have the bait shop open , but they are more interested in renting canoes and kayaks and pontoon boats. Their posted opening hours last summer for the bait shop was 7:00 A.M which made me chuckle, not exactly great for the serious fisherman. You will be able to launch there too. Last year the fee was $7.00. Hope this helps.
