Fished there last night and marked a ton of fish, but was pretty slow. Caught 4 crappies from 6-11 pm. Missed 3 other bumps. Tried everything, caught the 4 fish on smallest jigs we had and small crappie minnows. Anyone else have any better luck

ended up with 8 and had to work really hard for them. Small jigs with bugs and minnows worked for us.

Saturday night we caught 1 sunfish about 7.5" and over 50 crappies in the 9"-10" range, 1 was 11" between 5 pm and 8 pm, they were still biting when we left. Next morning it was small and I mean small crappies and a few nice sunnies mixed in with small sunnies.

Used a JB lures Ju Ju with a silver wiggler/euro larva which was the hottest ticket. The other was an Outdoor Pro Series neon Tiger jig with a small purple plastic tail added to it was the second. The slowest and I mean slowest was a small jig with a small minnow - 2 fish total.

It's not a location issue as I've tried a few differant spots over the past week and while some were bettrer than others it was relatively close.

Rick you fish Clear often? I fish it a few times a year. I usually have good luck there, some walleyes in with a bunch of crappies. I will usually fish there from about 6-9pm, then it slows alot after that, for me anyways.

A fishing report from "the man"; Hoo-Ray!

Folks, if Rick is catching fish, he usually forgets to talk and even type.

Thanks for the report dude. Nice to see you're on 'em. I owe you a perch bite, don't I?

Have been over to Clear the last two weekends with mixed results. How deep are you catching the crappies and if you are willing to share where abouts on the lake were you?

went out today and fished the north end of the lake and caught nothing but really small sunnys and perch. watched BIG schools of crappies come through on the camera and tried everything but could not get them to bite on anything!! we were in 16 feet of water. good luck to everyone else out there hope next time i can give a GOOD report. I GUESS THATS WHY THEY CALL IT FISHING and NOT CATCHING!!! HAHA!

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter

      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
