Two weeks ago Bass lake was giving up 17" Crappies. You might try there at sun down.

I also heard that fox lake is producing some big crappies. I see that you were also out there fishing. does it pay to go to that lake tommorrow to try it in the afternoon?

If you want alot of action just before and after dark,go there.It doesn`t matter where you go on the lake.Just be in 15 foot or deeper.I will be out there this afternoon.Look for a black and red portable.

Thanks Dan I appreciate that. We might just come down there then. We will be in an extended white chevy pickup truck with graphics on the side and a topper. You guys are using minnows I take it also. What about glow jigs? do they work down there also?

Hey Dale

I was out there untill 5 pm sunday afternoon.Caught several small perch.Did you stay out there after dark?If you go 300 feet out from the north east public landing and use crappie minnows or wax worms you should easily get your limit of crappies.You have to be there after dark to get them.I was targeting perch on sunday because i had enough crappies from friday.

Yeah we got there about 5:20 and were fishing by 5:45. We stayed until 9:30 last night. We went out towards the power plant and fished damner right under the power lines. well then we might have to make a trip down there on sunday or friday night. I have a pheasants forever banquet on Satruday night so I won't be going real far on Saturday.

Under the power lines is not where the crappies are.I fished there a few times in 17 fow with the cam on and only seen lots of small walleyes and perch.Even after dark by the wires i have caught very few crappies there.Good Luck

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
