South Center Lake has always been productive to me when it comes to fishing for Crappies, but it appears that this winter - the size of the Crappies have been smaller than the past few years. I don't know why, but it's been disappointing. The majority of the time - I have caught my limit of Crappies within a matter of an hour whenever fishing South Center. However, I have only been out on South Center Lake about 5 times this winter and although, I caught my limit on crappies - I released most of them back into the water because they were too small to keep in my opinion and only took 1-3 home for the frying pan. They walleyes have been quite good to me this winter surprisingly even though they were all non-keepable sizes, but catching 5-8 walleyes within 3 hours makes ice fishing that much more better.

There has been some over harvest to the lake.. There is a good year class of crappies coming up but they are 6-7" right now at best. There are some keepers in there, but you need to pick through to get them for sure.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
