I was out on french sunday afternoon from about noon till 5pm. We caught 6 crappies out over the deeper water. Only kept three, the biggest being around 12 1/2 inches. The fish were suspended about 8-14 feet off the bottom. Lot's of people out there. Ice ranged from 10-13inches but the top three inches of ice are crap. Even saw some (Contact US Regarding This Word) driving an explorer out there pulling a perm. Too early for that. Hope this helps.

went to french this am, fished the south side in 27'. caught one nice perch, and one 5" crappie. tons of fish came thru on the vex, but only 1/2 doz. very light bites. seems like fish would come thru the area about every 20min or so. tried everything from small jigs with spike, waxie, minnow, to bare hook and minnow, to jiggin spoon. no apparent change in their desire to bite. hopefully do better next time.

When I was out there on sunday we were fishing in about 54 feet of water. The crappies that came thru were about 12-14 feet off the bottom. Maybe try the deep hole the next time you go out there.

sheldonrocks,

Isn't the "deep hole" on the NE corner of the lake? I always thought there was a good dropoff and the end of the point near the launch too? oh well, I could be wrong... been wrong before..

Yeah, the deep hole is in the NE corner of the lake, around 5-6 hundred yards off shore. With the houses out there you really can't miss it.

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
