Drilled a couple dozen holes along the weedline on the west coast of Lower on Saturday where we had great success the past 2 seasons but the pannies had lock jaw. Pulled the plug and ran to N Long for the sundown bite and managed a few small Crappies and Snakes.

When we hit Upper Mission a few weeks ago we couldnt figure them out. Tried many different spots and many different techniques, but to no avail. Maybe it was just bad timing? Ive heard alot better reports from Lower Mission. But havent tried it myself.

Pretty slow all winter. I did get some nice sunnies last week.

The panfish don't gave lock-jaw, they are gone. A 900 acre lake can't take as much pressure as U.M. has the last few years. Time to find a new lake to "hammer-em" on.

I'm 30 years old and have been pulling crappies out since i was little. Must be great spawning areas to keep the crappie population up. But it was a terrible year out there.

Can a guy still access the lake through that resort on the south-east side? I think I tried last year but the owner blocked the road. Probalby good for the crappie population. I dont think I have ever seen so many people fishing tiny crappies in one area like I saw out there a few winters ago.

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
