late report, fished again Wed afternoon from 4-730p, ice is very soft, the top 2-4" is honey combed, seen a guy drive his truck out to the same spot, I would not take a chance, its not that bad to walk on. Caught a few 7-8" gills, caught some perch that I released, 2-3 spikes seem to work the best. Rthunder

Fished last night from 4pm-730pm,11' of water caught alot of 7-8" crappies all released, couple nice perch also released, 1 decent gill, ice is thick but its soft ice, seen some guy drive his truck out to middle by us, I thought he was nuts. Wear creepers the ice is slippery, water standing in some places on the ice, other than that it was a nice walk and great day to fish.

Hit em good tonight. 11.5' of water 3-4' off bottom. Tail hooked Crappies minnows with #12 trebles. Bite started at about 815 and I had 25 crappies at just after 10. Ice looked great, a little standing water but not too bad.

I was on Crystal around 6:15 Sat morning and caught one perch. Marked others but nobody was willing to bite. Lots of ice, trucks driving all over.

If it was the hotspot, I doubt they'd post it all over here. Give it a try. I tried 3 different lakes that day, and the one perch was all I could get, total.

Fished this afternoon til dark out from the boat landing 12=14' water. One 8" perch lost a couple others on tip down. Plenty of truck travel on "roads" with the drifts busted through. Beautiful day to fish.

I didn't check the ice depth since I always walk but plenty of vehicles out tonight. Deep snow in places, people getting hung up and 4wd is pretty much a must. (or AWD like the subaru I saw)

The fish were off, then on for 20 min, then back off again like a light switch. If you weren't there for the magic then it was skunkville it seemed...

Was out this am. Some drifts up to your knees. Had no problems with an Escape. I WOULD NOT take a car out....or bring a shovel. One small Perch and one small bass. Fished from 445-830.

Have not been out since Saturday but trucks were driving all over. Ice was 13-14 inches in every hole I drilled. I would imagine there are probably some good sized drifts out there. 4 wheel drive would be a must and a little common sense to know not to slow down when the snow gets deep. Have seen plenty of guys get stuck out there in past years. Good luck!

Second time night fishing Crappies this year and did pretty good tonight. Ended the night at 8:15 cause I figured it would take me an hour to dig myself outta the boat landing launch....I was right. I apologize to anyone living in the area, as I ripped my muffler off exiting the lake....or trying to! Report: Swapped all my Crappie set-ups over to 6lb Green Berkley. Ran nothing but crappie minnows as I always do. #12-14 trebles. Fished from about 545-815. Ended the night 11 Crapp1es (crystal lake keepers) and 1 Perch just shy on 12". Had to play with the lighting quite a bit to figure it out.
