what is the crappie action looking like on either east or west battle. I am heading there this weekend and any help would be great!

Nothing but strong N/NW winds for a long, long time. I haven't seen anyone braving the elements in awhile. Good luck!

I was up there last weekend and had very little luck. The water temp is still very cold. The crappies have not moved into the shallows yet. With the forecast for the week ahead, I doubt that the crappies will be moving into the shallows anytime soon. You might be better off staying at home.

give me a call.

I fished today and the weather sucked bad, with all the slabs lately its hard to resist The 10 below highs in January didn't chase me off I don't see why 40 degrees with a little snow is so bad it would seem like a beautiful day in January. It has slowed alot and today finally made it hardly worth the effort, but I could have kept a limit if I didnt let em all go. Any lakes good up there before the cold snap?

My dad lives on East Battle and we did see a couple boats looking for them, but didnt seem to stay out too long.

Last saturday I was fishing the shore of Ellingson(sp) and cought a few crappies but not much for size, one that went 11" the rest were 6-8". the sunfish action was constant.

I did see someone drop a boat on the lake, but didnt get to talk to them to see how they did.

we'll give it a shot. We'll be able to find them no matter where they are.

I just looked at the weather forcast for Henning and it calls for snow tomorrow. It could be ugly.

Ya this weekend might be no good for weather, but we've fished in worst weather and always caught fish.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.

      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.
