Was looking for some info on how people were doing on here and surprised i didnt see anyone writing about it. Is it that big a secret havent fished it in years and even then didnt hit it hard. Wondering if anyone has any tips on where to find the crappies or maybe some walleyes. Not looking for any honeyholes but just some info. If you dont want others to know feel free to email me.. nevermind908@yahoo.com ... appreciate any info and good luck to y'all.

We have perm house out. Moved it a lot. Back to a spot where we have gotten small walleyes, but not many. About 23' deep, with some scattered rocks on bottom. We are away from the beaten path. We were one of the first to a "community" spot, and got a couple nice eyes, and lately it has been dead sea. So we moved far away from traffic, and not doing much better, but lots of perch and a few crappies, and a few walleyes. Typical night is bunch of perch and 3 or 4 crappies and 2 small (11-13") walleyes.

I've been fishing it once a week, all over the place. Very few eye's, some real quality crappies, although you really have to work for'em. Perch all you want in the 3-5" range. The only thing worth noting were some good size northerns off the mumps in 19 fow. The bigger crappies I caught were on the ramsey beach side at the end of the bar roughly 20-25 fow. Good luck!

Tonight got some pretty darn fat perch. Some smaller ones too, but if we were keeping them, they were better than normal. Nothing else. They were hitting only big fatheads on jigs, and hitting them pretty darn hard.

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
