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.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
