Are there any fishing reports coming from the longville area?? Or has the ice deteriated to the point that not many people are out now??

I was out last weekend on a little lake near Longville, crappie bite was good. Buckshot rattle spoon (orange with glow backside) with crappie minnow caught the most fish, set line with chartruse hook took a few as well. 22"-24" of ice.

9joey1,

The ice was plenty safe, I could have easily driven the truck out, but I didn't, no need to. I can say that there were no indications of melting yet, no pulling away from shore or anything of that nature. I usually use a wheeler on this lake, it's very small and my dad has a place on it. It is just easier to drive the wheeler right out of the garage and down to the lake instead of loading the house into the truck and lifting it in and out every time I move.

Yesterday (28th) there was some foot traffic, however with the continued rain and warm temps, I would not venture out. Especially without an ice spud to check as you go

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
