We are going to try Madison this a.m., so we'll see how that goes. I wasn't expecting to see 35 degrees on the thermometer!! I'll post later & let you know if you'll need dynamite & a net grin.gif At least it shouldn't be a monsoon out there today. L2f

I was out on Madison last night and the crappies seem to be in at least 4 feet of water. They started biting good once the wind died down and the sun went down. Pulled in one sunny and a couple of bass in that same depth.

i was out there last sunday nite and ended up getting about a dozen crappies and a few walleyes and some bass and a sunfish. also ive caught all of these within 7 feet of water towards evening. after the wind died down the bite turned on. if u go back in areas where the trees block the wind u might catch some crappies there as well and a variety of fish possibly.

Well, I spent the whole day there today & caught about a dozen crappies (3 keepable, 10"). These were along a gradual drop-off that went from 6'-18' slow trolling a spinner/minnow.The nicer ones were in the deeper of the range. Got 2 eyes in 14' in another area on a jig/leech combo. A few small bass, & oh yeah, a sheepie.I did pitch the submerged veg for pike but nothing doing. ?? Too much sunshine but all in all, a good day on the water.

My brother had originally come up to go fishing this week, but got impatient and with the wind and went home. So i went fishing on thursday by myself. Did great. Caught my limit of crappie in 1.5 hours. Caught my brothers limit also. Let the 3 biggest ones go but of course i could not keep his because he went back home. Too bad for him. They topped the 12 to 12.5 in mark. Also c and r'ed one 27 in northern. Only one walleye though. But all in all a very good day. My best yet. And all the crappie i did keep were all for a meal for me and my family. Sorry, no pictures.
