Going to try to get out tomorrow afternoon, which lake would be a good one to target? Anyone else be there?
You are already there! My dad and I have both caught our biggest crappies out of Rex. With crappie, they change locations a lot based on the conditions. They go where the minnows are. Today, they are probably deep and close to the bottom since it was so cold yesterday. Probably where the weeds area starting to grow on the bottom. The next time it warms up to 60 degrees, they will be shallow around the wood and docks looking to spawn on a gravel bottom or around lily pads. That's when you can catch them as close as a foot from shore! After the spawn, they will move back out to deep water and be harder to find.I just put a boat in the water permanently docked at Rex Lake and I'm need to Portage Lakes, can anyone direct me to where the best crappie fishing is at on the main lakes.
