I’ve caught few crappies in Owen. Comment below sums it up pretty well, not like it used to be. Poor management and overpressured. Owen is relatively small body of water, needs better conservation.

Not to get in a slinging match, but Griz is right about crappies in Owen.  I too, can't speak to on the ice, but in early season open water, I have caught some big crappies, slip bobbering on deep rocks, for walleyes.

Not a bucket full, but enough to add to a fish fry. 

And my trips to Nelson, included a lot of sorting to get panfish of a size worth cleaning, for me.  Used to be an awesome panfish lake, but poor management of the heavy fishing pressure has taken its toll.

Have caught some dandys in late spring. Just never really tried in winter. But if you want all the 9 inch max crappie in can catch, go to nelson. Deergrabber check your messenger.

You're going to the wrong Lake if you're looking for crappies.  Nelson Lake down by Hayward has a pile.

I have done some investigating on the Lake there is anywhere from 5" to 2" of ice with a lot of open water spots  not safe with the warm temps.
