You know, you can do a bit of scouting just through a little observation. Go out there and see where people are - if they are moving - if they smell fishy - are they quiet or visiting, etc. You can find out a lot on a lake just by observation - plus it's fun to just scout. Jump in the truck - bring some binocs - a great attitiude, and a 12 pack of pop to share with guys you are pumping info from - and you should be good to go.

Plus, there is nothing wrong with stopping and visiting with people. You don't have to ask them to put you on fish, but you can get general ideas for what is going on, especially if you are polite.

I see these posts all the time, looking for place, depth, location and bait. I hope this points you in a good direction.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
