From previous posts, it seems like the SE end is the place to look.

Fished the south east Friday in the cold temps. 15 ft. of water. About a month ago, we had great fishing in the same location for the 10+ crappies and a few sunnies. Friday things were kinda reversed. The sunnies were stacked and aggresive they even made the rod jump. Had the best luck stay'n high, the 8+ sunnies would jump from the bottom and smack it. I did muster a few nice crappies, but they wanted the dead stick with a minnow. For the cold weather, I was suprised. I wasn't exspecting alot of action, but it sure kept me busy. Glow Diamond jig, bent out hook and euros produced the most fish.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
