One hole wonder at mead lake today off south boat landing. 20 " ice, most people out driving vehicles; walked the short distance myself. Little crappies and bluegills plus shiners higher up in water column. Plastic and waxworms, both vertical and horizontal jigs, bite very light, almost undetectable even with spring bobbers. Getting out of wind helped too. Nothing big enough to keep, but just good to catch something. One fellow with tipdowns and minnows had a couple of nice 11/12" crappies. Fished 2ish to 6, took the time to talk to the guys fishing near me, everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. Most fish/bites were in 13 feet of water depth, coming through between 5 to 10 feet down, not off bottom. Glad I went.
Stillcatchin I've fished below the dam for years seen Muskys over 50 inches down there I've got friends that bass fish the lake and they say they get walleyes randomly on plastics and spinner baits one guy had a 25 incher and another had a 18 both caught and released same day

Me and a buddy fished mead yesterday we caught a bazillion gills crappies and a couple perch out of the bazillion maybe 4 or 5 were big enough to keep MAYBE we let everything swim,question is there a population of panfish worth fishing for with any size or are they all stunted?there are a ton of shacks out there i would think catching 5 inch fish would get old real quick i did see two different amish buggys out there hopefully they keep every little fish they catch like they do everywhere else.......any pointers on some decent pannys here would be ok with me tight lines guys
