8 inch crappies are pretty good on the dinner table. If thats all thats available. If there are bigger fish, they tend to be under the small ones. so even though it's normal to fish up from the suspended fish, the larger ones..... if available will be under the little ones. Sometimes a larger presentaion keeps the little one away and entices the larger ones.

The lakes looks to have a few in the 9 inch range but not enough to hit em strong.

Tie on some ounce rated line. I think Thorne Brothers sells it; if you can see the stuff, and with a real noodle like rod... a 1/4 pound crappie feels like a pounder.

It's all about the fun of it.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.
