I did not fish boxell this year at all, but it will give up small crappies galore over the first big hole just east of the road. You won't be too far from the hillside (fairly steep as you look at it and drops into deep water quickly)

Couple of years ago I was out there at sunset with waxies. Put the bait down..BAM. bring it up, unhook, and back down.. BAM. It was the fastest crappie action I have ever had. There are so many little ones in there that I think they might be a bit stunted.

Good luck

Steve

we were fishing in 18-22 ft on the edge of a drop that goes to 40', have not tried for sun fish but I hear there is slabs in there, the DNR asks that if you get into the slabs to only take a few and put the rest back, good luck and may see you out there.

We've caught fish there during the day, but it is nowhere near as fast as dusk.

22 feet sounds about right for depth.
