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.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
