Does anyone know if the docks are in at the public access?

Yes, the dock was in on the public landing. Mases was closed yet due to dock work. I think it'll be open this weekend. Finding the crappies was not rocket science....follow the crowd, be nice to your neighbors, and have fun. My daughters and I took home a few for the first fish fry of the spring. This weekend should be much better as the water warms.

There are no crappies in this lake. Go west to Goose Lake.

What do you mean "no crappies"? I was out on wednesday and caught a crappie on every cast. You just need to know where to look and you will find great success on this lake.

You are right, the crappies are every where and you will have your limit in 30 mins or more.... heading out there this morning before it thunderstorms this afternoon.

I agree with SWMuskeye you can't go wrong with Goose Lake, Sweede is another great option.

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
