deep holes adjacent to shallow bays....getting ready for spring spawn in those shallow bays.....I know that Turtle Lake doesn't see alot of pressure and IF you can find those crappies you will be pleasantly surprised....but that isa big IF you can find them...

I've never tried Turtle for crappies but this spring I am planing on it. I bet by those two little bridges on the SE side of the lake would be good in the morning and towards night. Where do you plan on trying for some crappies this spring??

In March, I'd be looking at the crappies being suspended over deep water outside of spawning bays. Towards the middle/end of March, I wouldn't hesitate to go into the bay during the day and do some hole hopping. I know we always here about crappies spawning in bays on the north sides of lakes, but they will also spawn in other bays located around a lake, but maybe a little later then the north end of the lake, depending on water temps.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
