Question for Jonny and Kelly

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys I will be coming up this weekend for the first time this season. I was just wondering how the crappie bite was going? Are you guys still looking in areas away from the crowds? And drilling a ton of holes until you find them? I was also wondering how the rough ice was looking this year. Is there alot around?

There are some crappies showing up but we are really still about a month away from the good crappie bite. All we are getting now are the stragglers that stayed around during the summer heat rather then head for the deeper,cooler water across the line. The big schools are still out west across the Line. Heading this way to spawn in the spring but still across the Line. Late Febuary and March are usually the best time for crappies.

Always stay away from the crowds and then hope the crowds don't find you.

You never know if the fish are there or not until you drill a hole there and over 60% of what we can fish on URL never has a hole drilled in it.

Miles of rough ice but also a lot of snow cover so I imagine the shadows under the ice are all about the same.
