Hey guys just wanted to say hi to everyone, this seems like a great site! Been out on Madison the past couple nights in the Narrows and have not had much luck any one know if they are still deep in there or if the bite has gone shallow? Look forward to getting to know everyone!

Welcome to FM.

Crappies were still there on Tuesday half way down in about 28 feet. Getting them to bite is another thing. They will follow your jig up but are slow to take. I tried everything in the box so I don't think it is a color thing.

There has been a ton of fishing pressure in that area and I decided to give it a rest and move away from the houses. That would be my advice to you.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
