I've heard good things about this lake for spring crappie fishing. Can anyone tell me where I might try when the ice gets off? BTW, I ice fished Somers lake yesterday. There was still 4-8 inches of ice, but this week should take care of most of that.

Notheast bay about a week ago. Not sure if you can still get out but it was awesome sight fishing 5' nice crappies watched some huge muskies come thru also. After ice out has been good in the past. I try to hit clearwater after ice out have done much better there.

It is very good. I was out there on saturday and the ice was terrible. fell through a few times with one leg but still managed to get a nice mess of crappies. They are already in the bull rushes! I caught them all in 3 feet of water! No lie. Fish the bay right on the inside curve off of sunset point.

Rippenlipps, I also fish clearwater a ton in the spring and have pretty good luck. Wear are your favorite spots on the lake?

eyes' - that sounds like a blast! About three weeks ago I was fishing in Wisconsin in about four feet of water. Two feet of it was ice at that time. There were a lot of panfish in that two feet of water, though. Pretty amazing when they are in that shallow. Anybody ever try fly fishing for panski's on Clearwater? I've fished bluegill beds before, and it was a blast. Would like to be able to get some slab crappies on the fly rod as well. Where are some good spots to try on Clearwater? Will most of the bullrushes be productive? Thanks!

Ice man, I have a few spots that I have found over the years. My best advise would be to find shallow back waters. Where ever the water warms up first the minnows will be there and so will the crappies. Don't be afraid to do some exploring. Clearwater is an awesome lake with tons of structure. Maybe some day we could hook up and do some fishing?

eyes' -

It would fun to get together with a fellow FM'er on Clearwater. I ice fished it a few times this year with some luck, but have only summer fished it a couple times. I just moved to Buffalo last year, and would like to get out after work once in a while. Do you live near the area? Email me at [email protected] and we'll work out the details if you'd like.

Eyes I have a couple places I like to go depending on how many others are there. The chanal that goes to otter has been great in the past. I also have a couple spots in the bay off of 24. How about yourself? Have you checked the ice lately? Maybe I will run out there this afternoon. The predicted forecast will move everything farther out now. Pray for WIND and RAIN.

Rippenlipps, I also fish the bay over by 24. Got a few other spots on that side of the lake also. I have never fished the otter channel though. I don't have a clue on the ice conditions. It would be great to know how they are though...

Anyone know the ice conditions yet on Sugar or Clearwater? Are they open?

I was up at sugar on friday and only about 20 feet out from shore was ice free and I went back up sunday and that was skimmed over again. So I think it will be a while till it's open.

Ice is completely out on Clearwater as of today 4/13. Cleaning up the shoreline, saw some fool waterskiing! Warm enough for him...warm enough to fish!

Was out on sugar on Friday 5/3 and there was no action. It does not seem like the crappies have come into the shallows yet. Not enough cover.

I'll have to disagree with everything you said. I was out there 5/3 and 5/4. On 5/3 I brought home 5 nice fish and on 5/4 when it was really windy, My buddy and I brought home 2 limits. Felt good to do some serious cleaning again. We found agressive fish and technique was everything.
