MAde it out tonight for 2 hours. Not too good for crappie size. Caught a handful of littles and bluegills. Not happening from what I can see. Let me know if you find something different. Lots of guys out today.

went up yesterday looking for crappies, put in at little johnnies bait shop. fished from there all the way to the ox-bow, tried every brush pile, nothing.
two blue gills and one bass for the day, and a 3 hundred mile trip, you gotta love it.
we'll try them again in a couple of weeks.
That camera is run by Johnny's bait shop on Cty X. They put the lure out there in front of it.
As for fishing.. Last time I was out here (was about 2 weeks ago) we hooked into 7 sturgeon and 1 12" walleye in about 5 hours. This was supposed to be a good 3-4 weeks before the sturgeon run usually starts. Because of all of them so early, we haven't returned and wont until after the spawn run is over (early May). We were fishing from shore around the sturgeon trail area with minnows on river rigs. I've heard of guys with boats catching walleyes vertical jigging, but most have said its slow and a lot of small fish.
