    Almost forgot, water 37. Fish on edges, ledges, piles, wood, bottom, rocks, suspended and just swimming around. From 15 to 30 feet deep in 15 to 40 feet of water. Best concentration of feeding fish were at 18-22. Kind of boat shy, but you could just follow the school around if you pushed it off the pile or whatever they were stuck to, they were still willing to bite.

    Thank you for the report. Always relaxing to be out by yourself in nature and see those gorgeous sights.

    Lots of people out yesterday for a "winter" day. Lots of people going to and fro, trying here then trying there. I dont think they were catching much. The fishermen I saw didnt notice that the crappie are mostly schooled up and suspended. If you have decent electronics, you can see them around the masses of shad. Most of the schools of crappie that I saw are between 20 and 40 feet wide and about 15 to 25 feet deep. The shad are in much larger schools (or layers if you will), 100 plus feet or more in size. The shad schools start deep and kind of creep up to about 20 feet if the bottom contour is pushing them up, making points that extend out into the deeper water prime places. The schools of crappie are just lazily meandering around the points slowly, not moving away from the point they are on, even if you are pushing them around with the boat. I watched one boat go down a shoreline scanning piles looking for fish from the point all the way back to where the ice started. They drove over several schools of suspended crappie looking at the piles that were void of fish. They left without dropping a line. I went over there and caught numerous fish right after they left. Every point that I checked that extended out to deep water had schools of crappie, only 2 piles that I checked had schools of crappie. Water was 35 to 37, vis was 3 or 4 feet. I ended up adding 6 feet of 6 lb fluoro leaded to my braid. It really helped add more bites. I settled on a small 1/64 ounce hair jig that was grey, black and sparkle chinnille above a small shad imitating spoon. Caught as many as I wanted, even left early LOL.

    Nice report Fishers! Enjoyed it while I sit here drinking coffee, watching 2 eagles have breakfast.
    Would have went fishing, but I listened to the weathermen!

    Thanks a lot for the detailed tutorial Chris. I have found the same patterns as you mentioned-never seen fish so boat shy as they are right now, especially when they’re on brush but that’s ok- just makes it easier to work my jigs through them with the wood out of the way.
