I have been having pretty good luck with crappies out on Little Detoit. Yes It is crowded but Stay away from the crowds. I am along a weed/sand edge in 14 ft of water. Last saturday I did well on small green jig with waxxies and sunday it was a green jig with crappie minnows. The ice is about 17 inches under my house. The slush is all frozen so travel is not much of an issue with a 4 wheel drive. I also heard of a good sunnie bite on Big Floyd, a few crappies on Melisa and lots of small walleyes on Sallie.

I've also heard crappies biting on Melissa. I have a lake place on Meadow Lake in the summer direclty across from Melissa, but have never fished it. Any ideas on where to start looking on Melissa?

north and east end of the lake, to the southeast of the pelican river inlet. fish the flats and breaks, you should find some fish.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
