Lots and lots of keeper crappie, most 10 inches, one 13. All released.Only tiny bluegills, a few. Watch deer and fawns on road between lakes to Crane landing-reduce speed.
81° - 88° F
Bartz Bay Road off of Pickerel Lake Road then left on Doemel Lane.
Anyone know which road the landing is off of on this lake?
76° - 80° F
Crane fishing hard this year, crappies-very small and gills-tiny. White caps, got off.
Lots of ice, and standing water from the rain.
any ice up here yet?
66° - 70° F
Lots crappie (10") avg and blue gills (8") avg. 8-12 ft wtr in weeds. Gills still have eggs, I don't think they will spawn this year-poor conditions. Don't take limits.
71° - 75° F
Lots of crappies and blue gills. I don't take but caught many 10-12 inch crappies-all empty and huge blue gill's loaded with eggs, biggest was 10.5. Release the gills to spawn.
Anyone have a ice report for crane/pickerel lakes. Thanks.
gunman I don't know about the gills but the last dnr survey for the eyes reported 1 ''adult'' walleye per acre.Not very good.Also 18'' minimum size limit for walleye.
