Buy a lake map and look for deeper holes this time of the year. It is going to take some work to find them but will be worth it.

First get a rod with action like above. Second get a jig like above (I perfer little pink one, dave genz made and it glows pink when flashed). Use light 2lb test. berkley vanish works best. finally get the smallest split shot you can find, maybe two. Do not use bobber, but intsall bobber stop (when you check for depth, mark bobber stop at bottom)this will tell you were bottom is. Fish about 6" to 1' off bottom were i am going to tell ya. First bald eagle. I have family over this way and fished both lakes alot. On eagle their are two spot. First on south tip of cigar isle. right off of shore their is a steep drop. fish in 20-30 feet of water. if they aint biting go in 15-20 out from beach on east side. White bear lake, the lake is big find your self 20-30 feet of water and you will get crappies. i have got them from a bar on the north east corner and shrp drop off at south end of lake. Good luck! laugh.gif

P.S.

tip with smallest crappie minnow you can find. I have even gotten them of a plastic grub.

A buddy of a guy i work with said his uncle's brother in law caught some nice crappies in phalen on the south end in the 52 foot hole i guess he was using crappie minnows, some were over 9 inches, it might be worth a try.

This might be out of your area, but Minnetonka is producing a large number of crappies. The size is not great, but you can get about 3 or 4 keepers out of every 8 cought. We have been fishing in about 30' with a plain red hook and very small crappie minnows. We are catching at least one about evry 2 minutes..

There is a good hole in spring park bay (just to the left of the landing). There is also some great spots in Phelps. Just find a map and go to the 30 flats in phelps next to the breaks

      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
