    The bite is slow at Atwood. If you have the enough patience to tease a few out of the hole,You'll be well rewarded with some nice slabs. Ive been sucessful every trip. But it prolly wouldnt have happened w out help from my vex. my buddy sittin next to me in the shanty got one and lost a few. me i ended up w nice bucket of fish enough to last me till i get hungry again for crappie..goin to the big lake saturday walleye sounds goood.
     

  3. Eric how much snow did you have on top of the ice...By the way I sent a PM...Be careful out there.....Jim.....
     
  4. 2 to 4 in of snow on the lake
     
  5. Ice is very spotty at Leesville. You can be on good ice and then there is slushy/bad ice just a few feet away. All I've heard about there has been small gills. Atwood has been slow like the others have said.
     
  6. A lot of the lakes up this way have been very spotty...Most have been small fish...Every now and then Someone gets into some nice ones...Right now looks like you catch them or you don't. From the reports the lakes are like Leesville.........Jim....
     
  7. Was at atwood thursday 200 yards from everyone else--caught 15 -20 8-11 inchers--on minnow--10 ft of water 1 foot off bottom---anyone know how tappan is????
     
  8. Does anyone have the name/number of a bait shop near Atwood. I would like to get minnows.
     
  9. I dont have name or # but there are 2 in summerdale off 212 on the way to atwood and they have minnows
     
  10. Tappan ice is good. I fished there the other morning with one bite on a tip up and that was it. The lakes haven't been treating me well this year, but ponds have been on fire.
