Yep, the crappies are still biting on the northside of the lake in @ 12-18ft. between about 4 and 6 pm.Use a Genz Worm and minnow to entice the little buggers! Good luck!

Are they still as small as they were two years ago? I stumbled upon this lake once when I got bored of fishing cedar island by richmond and caught alot, but they were all around 6 inches... Just a yes or no, you dont have to say where since I pretty much know

I fished this lake last year and to me it seems you can only catch fish during day light. At least for me once the sun went down the crappies where done. Kind of wierd for such a clear lake. The crappies i caught out there were nice in size they probably averaged 10" or so the gills were a little on the small side.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
