There are better crappie lakes than John. Clearwater would get my vote over John for crappies.

To get to where you need to fish for them would be an incredibly long walk with this snow. Fish over the deep "hole" looking and moving around. If you go out let us know how you do. Good Luck

Should be able to find some good weeds too, so you might try that a little later in the season.

I've had good luck with bluegills on that lake year round, pike and bass in the summer.

Let us know if you find green weeds or have any luck.

Fished John today, got a mess of bluegill and pumpkinseeds. Just a few for a meal, plus a couple bonus crappies. The vegetation is doing well.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
