It seems to be a mixed bag right now. Depending on the area of the lake I have caught them in 7 feet of water and hovering over 18 feet of water.

Not sure on the crappies, but the small lake I fish the females are just go through spawn, and the big males are coming in the shallows. I did pretty well on some nice sunnies Saturday in about 2-3 fow. For a stretch my bobber would go down as soon as it hit the water. No bulls, but just some nice sized fish for the pan. YUM! Caught some nice plump females full of eggs, but all those went back in the water.

As for the lake, well I can't divulge...but it's a smaller lake with not much fishing pressure or oating activity, so not sure if that makes a difference.

The crappies we caught on Saturday were in 11-15 ft suspended. So were the walleyes only not suspended.

We've done the best for crappies in the 5-12 foot range. Seems like that first break is holding the larger fish. A lot of fish in the shallows too, but they have been generally smaller...

Last night they were right on the surface and were readily biting the flies we were casting. Lot of fun with a fly rod. Not much size but probably 20-30 fish 2 guys 2 hours.

    • Shame on you for questioning  these great and wonderful plans.  Have you no faith?  Besides it's pure nonsense.  She made a lot of claims that her plans would not add anything to the deficit or debt   But we have heard those same claims many times over.  It's a mystery why people still believe that everything is going to be funded through just simply raising taxes on people making over $250,000 a year just because "their " candidate said so When a candidate comes up with more spending ideas and tells you that the "rich" are going to be the ones that are going to fund them ,what they really mean is they're  going to fund them through printing and borrowing. They just use accounting tricks and schemes to hide the cost but I prefer math   Personally, I prefer any candidate I were to support tell us how they're going to get us out of this fiscal mess we're in    
    • I agree he should not have been playing in the world cup.
    • Im going to run my Elite 5 on the dash also, soley as my gps. So that will free up space on the Garmin for the side imaging...Now I cant wait for spring to try out all the new toys haha....I've always heard Garmin were really nice I just never saw any of their units that had the features I wanted and were in my $$ range.. I think I'll be really happy with it...Im curious how the preloaded maps are that come with it (lakevu??) I think its called. It would be sweet if it would take my Garmin upper midwest fishing guide chip, but I doubt it does.
    • I don't think it will adhere to the surface very well under 50 degrees.  Especially on the bottom, it could create some real problems if it doesn't stick very well!
    • Sure wakes ya up when nodding off and that reel goes ZINGGGG!!
    • lol sugar coat it all you want Nick the Gophers are a 7th best team in the Big 10 period. They don't have a meaningful win this entire season and they didn't beat any other team in the big 10 with a winning record except for Northwestern who are 5-4 in conference play but 6-6 overall. That isnt trolling at all, its facts.   I hope they can recruit by selling a trip to the Holiday Bowl this year. Big things happening for the Gophers!
    • that sounds great!!!  they were good pictures too!
    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
