Has anyone been catching any crappies, or good size sunfish?

I don't know - I will let you know on Monday.

I plan to be running down some fish this weekend in the cold. That's the plan anyway!

Where are the spots for Crappies on Pelican. I have asked this before on here, but I still cannot catch one. I fish for walleyes and bass all summer for 5 years now and have yet to catch a Crappie. I will be bringing 40 some people up to Breezy Point in Late Feb, where could I get into the fish on the West side through the ice.

I just need to know structure and depth, I can find the spots from there.

right out in front of the resort in the small bay there is a good crappie hole by the sand bar going to the big lake

I have caught them in 17-24 fow in weeds, and transitions from weeds to sand bars or muck.

They havent been in the bay much this year. It varies year to year. Generally they bite at nite with glow jigs, but they havent done much this year. Moose bay has some occassionally in the 12 ' hole. Sometimes you can get them near weavers point, but its hit and miss, you have to stumble on them when your fishin for wallys.

Thanks a lot, I will have to try some of those spots. I have never even seen them on the aqua view, but supposedly there are some pretty good size ones in the lake.

Yea there are some good sized ones in Pelican. Last year we could catch 6-8 of them and a couple eyes in our 20' walleye hole. I think i have only caught one this year though. I fish by goosberry island off the knoxies landing. Let us know if anyone finds them!!!

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?
