Any thoughts on what lake in this area may produce crappies this weekend?

This weekend should be excellent. I would expect the fish to start moving into the bays this afternoon and with the projected forcast, they should be there for awhile. I checked a few bays yesterday and there were crappies and sunnies in a few, but the numbers weren't there yet. ScottS

Do you think Big/Little Birch would be good choices this weekend?

Big/Little Birch lakes are very clean and clear lakes and therefor, the water warms up slower than river fed lakes like the Horseshoe Chain. Early season fishing, like this, is usually better in lakes with stained or dirty water, simply because they warm up faster. Two weeks from now this will not be an issue, but since it is so early, I would focus on lakes with darker water. I am not saying I would not give Big/Little birch at try, I am just saying, that if I were after panfish, I would start with other lakes.ScottS

      Hi Wanderer, I am going up this weekend too.  Glad the weather will be warm! I will try a different pit this time, but had good luck last year.  I hope the fish will be active and hungry.

      Thanks Rick! Jeff hope to make it always a good time and laughs when you get a group of great people together. I usally do more jaw jacking  then fishing at these things but for me its just as much fun

      I will donate a few goodies. I will send it to @Tom Sawyer if he messages me his address.

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger. 
    • Wanderer
      @Roscoe010 I wanted to head that way yesterday but my fishing partner didn’t have that kind of time.  If I get there this weekend, I’ll let you know. Or hopefully someone else knows and will reply.
    • smurfy
      i'm considering going out sat to chase walleyes, cats or crappies................OK whatever will bite. whats frustrating is i live 5 mile from the chain, grew up in richmond and all these maps have me confused??????????
    • DonBo
      Toying with the idea of heading up there Saturday morning. Only been there a couple times, never on the opener.
    • JBMasterAngler
      Anyone go out on the opener? I usually wait a week before heading up there, so curious to hear some ice/fishing reports.
    • Roscoe010
      Did any of you check out the pits for winter trout opener last weekend? Thanks!
