I was on turtle last week. went out to get a fishing fix not expecting much. Figured it would be a sun down bite but was surprised to get half dozen crappies at 2 in the afternooon. They were big enough to keep, though I did let em go back to their families.

I might even venture over there this afternoon when the wind settles down and the wind chill is only 20 below. It ought to be a beautifull sun set. Mabey I'll even catch a crappie.

I also go there quite a bit in the summer but have never fished it in the winter. I plan to try it at least once this winter.

I typically head for the deeper water. That was 28 feet. two holes in the lake and on the map shows some interesting structure. I have ran the lake with my boat and never noticed the structure the map shows.

I used to fish the lake in the summer in front of the happy face \:\) when it was there. Mabey some older fisherman will remember it.

I see this winter houses in that area and can figure they are sight fishing the weeds. The water being clear makes sence.

I plan to venture over later this afternoon.

I was out saturday from 3:30 to 5:30. crappies were smack dab on the bottom. I used my new FL-20 for the 1st time and normally the crappies would be suspended. saturday they were right on the bottom and the FL-20 made difference in seeing them.

The size was smaller than last time out. But the weather may have had somthing to so with it.

I went out to play with the FL-20. it convinced me it is a pretty good unit.

Id keep picking on the lake.

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
