Has anybody had any luck on White Bear this year? A buddy of mine says the are catching big crappies, but the DNR lake report doesnt seem to back this up.

They are in 20-30", and are scatter but when you do fine them, you'll have some fun.

What part of the lake have you been fishing, any thing of of Ramsey Beach? I spent some nights on the ice infront of the VFW. And one morning off of Ramsey neither very succsesful but did have some good times out there at the end of last ice season.

What time did you hit the eyes? Been out until 6:00 pm with nothing, just wondering if this is a nite bite lake.

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.
