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!

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.

      I'll bet this lure will get a lot of bites! It may even catch a few fish! Does look interesting. Cliff
