Fishing the south side of the bar has been a good area.

During early ice I caught some out in front of the launch at night. No size to them.

I havent fished crappies in front of the boat ramp this year but i had a camera down the hole yesterday from 3:00pm till dark and i never saw a crappie, but a pile of dinky sunnies. I picked up a couple of nice pike close to sunset with tip-ups and shiners

Kinda makes me wonder if next years crappie class will be a good one or if the crappies have always been that size there

You hope that they continue to grow so that eventually there will be some crappies out there worth talking about. There seems to be a few lakes down that direction that are loaded with small crappies. Marion, Crystal and another lake that will remain nameless at present since it hasnt been mention on this forum. You just hope that these huge schools of small ones grow up and become decent ones.

during the first week we had the house out on marion around mid december we had a few nights where we pulled up quite a few 10 to 12 inchers that was only for a few days and we never limited out but after that it was dead for us so now we moved to waconia and 2nite the 17th we came back with 15 sunnies all within 9 to 10 and one 10 inch crappie

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.
