I have been having pretty good luck with crappies out on Little Detoit. Yes It is crowded but Stay away from the crowds. I am along a weed/sand edge in 14 ft of water. Last saturday I did well on small green jig with waxxies and sunday it was a green jig with crappie minnows. The ice is about 17 inches under my house. The slush is all frozen so travel is not much of an issue with a 4 wheel drive. I also heard of a good sunnie bite on Big Floyd, a few crappies on Melisa and lots of small walleyes on Sallie.

I've also heard crappies biting on Melissa. I have a lake place on Meadow Lake in the summer direclty across from Melissa, but have never fished it. Any ideas on where to start looking on Melissa?

north and east end of the lake, to the southeast of the pelican river inlet. fish the flats and breaks, you should find some fish.

      I'd pull it off to error on the side of caution.  You can always put it back out there in the future.

      Just because an officer doesn't say have a nice day doesn't mean he's a dick.  Can you imagine all the idiots this guy has to deal with on a daily basis?  It's the same with police officers.  They also get a bad rap because they aren't super polite or "nice" to people.  They get disrespected and abused and lied to on 95% of their calls.  You probably wouldn't be the most cordial person either if you had to deal with the crap they have to.     Should they be cordial?  Yes.  Is that what they get paid to do?  No.  Don't let it bug you so much.

      What's the Ice thickness on Blue now?  I'm considering driving out tomorrow on Blue. Has anyone fished Crappies or Sunnies Mon, Tues or Weds this week?
