Pleasant!!

Any tricks to catching crappies right now??

I can find them, and they are thick in the vex but the catching part has been tough.

Any time of the day better than others?

Minnows?

Waxies?

...and NO you don't need to catch them for me too.

Thanks for any info!

Is there any size out there, or are they all about what I have been catching?

No doubt they are there, and a week or two ago the 12 inchers were aggressive, now the bite has really slowed, I live across the street from Pleasant so I fish it quite a bit and when I was out there over there this past weekend a small crappie minnow on a plain hook worked if you had a lot of patience, otherwise I did get some by trying many different holes and jigging with a very small jigging rap.

Good Luck !!

I haven't been on Pleaant but the others lakes with a very tough bite the plastics fished horizontally and finessing the heck out of them have put more fish on the ice for me than either minnows or waxies. The smaller Ratsos or nuggies have been working best for me.

Good Luck!

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
