Haven't read anything yet about anyone catching Crappie in the canals.
Any one have anything to report?

Actually I was using a mini tube 1' under a float tipped with ....you guessed it a minnow. Just tossing it up tight to poles and boat docks.

Just got home from a few canals in the New Baltimore area. 50 degree water, pretty muddy. Only one crappie (about 13").

Did talk to another boat that was getting them on minnows and crawlers. We only used squirmin squirt tubes (1" & 1 1/2") on 1/8oz jigheads and slip bobbers. About 15 or so bluegills and about 10 largemouth (which were promptly released). All in all a great day!

largemouth bass. Things overhere Mitchells Bay, St.lukes have been slow with the exception of largemouth bass being caught regularly. Water temp in the bay is 45 degrees......just a little longer and everything will be in full swing
