i bet they are out there to catch!.. but I am not!... Way Way way to much warmer open water to be had this year. I dontwant to sound like a wimp or anything, the temps are not horrible, but the winds are.

I will agree about the winds. Lets just say the run for today was not too fun.

I think the spring crappie catch this year will be severely affected by the weather as it was last year. When it gets cold right after ice out the spring crappie catch never really recovers. That's just my experience, maybe better fishermen can still find them but I think this weather will be a detriment. I've heard the best crappie fishing is right after ice out, I've also heard the best crappie fishing is when the water temp is at 55 degrees, but it's been my experience that if those two events are more than 2 weeks apart the crappie fishing in the shallows never really peaks. What do the rest of you think?

Really? I did great with the crappie fishing last year. I fished for crappies from ice out till the Walleye/Pike opener... Crappie fishing seems to always be great every single spring. Crappies have to school up and spawn every spring right? Thus, they should be very easy to catch.

Yes they have to school up and spawn, but usually the best crappie fishing is pre-spawn. It's the pre-spawn bite in the shallows that I was talking about specifically.

Well if the pre-spawn crappie bite is soo great for you, then how can you be having trouble fishing for them? Lol..

Fished south center yesterday. Tried a lot of different spots...most spots got zero bites. We did get a few fish in the bay across from the swedish mall in Center City. I guess just a day or two early yet.

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!

      I'm curious about the walleye wings... do you skin or scale them?   Or is it not a problem?

      My yard!! Lol packing things away today. Getting ready for summer Be a great day to get out though.

      where we all fishing today?   Looking to walkout or use 4 wheeler if landing permits?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      By the landing yet it is.

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
