deep holes adjacent to shallow bays....getting ready for spring spawn in those shallow bays.....I know that Turtle Lake doesn't see alot of pressure and IF you can find those crappies you will be pleasantly surprised....but that isa big IF you can find them...

I've never tried Turtle for crappies but this spring I am planing on it. I bet by those two little bridges on the SE side of the lake would be good in the morning and towards night. Where do you plan on trying for some crappies this spring??

In March, I'd be looking at the crappies being suspended over deep water outside of spawning bays. Towards the middle/end of March, I wouldn't hesitate to go into the bay during the day and do some hole hopping. I know we always here about crappies spawning in bays on the north sides of lakes, but they will also spawn in other bays located around a lake, but maybe a little later then the north end of the lake, depending on water temps.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
