Depends on what you mean by worth it.. If you want a crappie on almost every cast, then NOPE, not worth it.. If you want a few crappies, then yes, it can be worth it.

MNO! Yes! In the Spring the Snake is excellent! Fish from the bridge near the Legion Club to the where the Snake runs into the lake. Troll a jig and minnow or a shallow crank bait. You can even catch them from shore if you have one of those long Eurpean type rods. The Walleyes will stack up in this area after the spawn to rest and feed before moving out into the lake or moving to other parts of the river.

If you fish at night a lighted bobber and a small fathead will sometimes produce too!

Good Luck

Tight Lines!

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
