Black Crappie - No Report: The cold weather has kept most anglers off the lake. But if you want to find the crappies they are going to be out at their winter homes in the middle of the lake in the cedars and culvert piles. Treat it like ice fishing from a boat.
The strong winds and above freezing air temps are keeping the lake ice free. The docks at the ramps have been pulled for the winter. Water spray from the waves is freezing on the ramps and shoreline rocks
