Just wanted to share some info. I've been catching some nice crappies 9-14 inches around the bays near the maintenance garage. I have been catching them in 8-10fow about 7 feet down. They seem to start up around 4:30pm and hit well until about 7:30 on nights they have been hitting. This has been the pattern for the last two weeks now and I've been pretty consistent. Catching them on minnows. Ice conditions range from 6-10 inches of good ice lakewide. Only open water i've noticed is over by the dam overflow to the spillway. Found some great spots out there. I have been about the only person out the whole time. Been hoping to see some other guys out there to give me a better idea of where the fish are on the lake. Just moved down here last year and I'm looking to hook up with some fellow hardwater fans. I've really been trying hard to get on some of the big blue gills I was catching this past summer. Did manage about a 10" redear last night with about 15 nice crappies and a #2 channel cat all on minnies!
