Deeper snow and slower fishing. Will spring ever get here? \:\(

That seems to be the word around there. Why do you think that when there is a good snow layer,the fishing slow down so much? With more snow coming,that cant be a desirable immediate forecast then...Me and sum buddies have a 6 man and a 5 man shack March 10-13th from you guys,We are going to keep the faith...It only takes one good school of crappies to swim thru, to make things interesting..

No sunlight to trigger them to move towards the spawning areas???? Dropping oxygen levels???? I don't know. There are some glimmers of hope. Flurries of crappie action usually moving west to east. Some people marking nonstop fish that will not bite. Forcasted highs in the mid 30's when you're here tho so we'll be able to move around.

Are you planning on leaving the 12th or 13th?

we are actually leaving on the 12th. i never want to leave though...i could stay for weeks.

They could be fairly close, 100 yards or so. No sense in getting closer and both houses fishing the same fish. Everyody is scouting tonight so cross our fingers.

My brother and I fished the night of the 1st thru the morning of the 4th, only caught 1 crappie, the walleyes bit good towards evening we caught and released 60+ in our search for those slabs.

Unlike other posts very few fish caught on the deadstick. Sunday plastics were best, but the rest of the time a rattling spoon was the ticket.

sounds great kelly...i wouldn't want them to be right on top of eachother...just close enough so they can all peek out the window and see me making swiss cheese of the lake holding up all my crappies since i'm the only one with a reliable auger again....should i be nice and let them use my auger or punish them is the question?

how's the perch bite? i like me some perch!

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      I never made it out Monday was too tired from fishing Friday - sunday didn't feel like getting up early

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
