    Was there Wednesday at Liebs Island and caught a mess of crappies. Biting on minnows (small minnows). They did not want the bass sized ones. No saugeyes although I didn't expect any in the middle of the day.
    Good luck!
     

  3. Stupid question but is there ice there still or was it open?

    As far as I could see it was open. It may get a skim of ice on it with this cold spell but the sun should melt it off quickly.
     
  5. Great I might have to make it up there on Sunday. Thanks for the heads up.
     
  6. Hey Mushroomman what time of day were you out there? Early, late afternoon? When. Thanks. I'm thinking I might get out there Sunday mid afternoon.

    I got there around 10 AM and fished untill 3 PM. The bite was off and on as there was a front moving through with some flurries. Every time the sky would get real dark they would bite fast. Then as the clouds moved away they dropped off. Around 1 PM the sky cleared and the sun came out and they turned on again for about 20 minutes. About the longest stretch without a bite was 20 mins. The smaller minnows seemed to be the best. They were very picky about that, I always believe the bigger the minnow the bigger the crappie but that was not the case that day.
    My Grandfather always told me when I was real young: You can't catch a fish if your line ain't in the water! Go get'em and good luck!!! They'll eat, just gotta be there feeding them.
