I have noticed that houses have started to go out there but was wondering if the were spearing or if the crappies are bitting any help would be great

just guess how deep the water is where the houses are with a map. if less than 8 ft, they are maybe spearing. any deeper, they are probably fishing with a rod/reel or jig stick. also, by now with the belle post you had, people will not tell you exactly what/when/where to fish. if you think ripley is worth a shot, go out and fish it for a day trying different depths and you may get rewarded. the worst thing to do when ice fishing is to go by the groups of houses. by the time you are fishing by a group, they fish they may have been catching are probably not there anymore.

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
