I have been doing ok so far this year but i am only shore fishing. I am having success on hair jigs, bitsy minnows, and small plastics. Can anyone give me any advice as to what i am looking for as far as structure or depth, weather conditions. Maybe even any pointers for stoney creek... i really enjoy fishing stoney but i know its kind of hard to target crappie if im not in a boat. Please any advice would be very helpful. Thanks in advance.

you defenetly need a boat to crappie fish this time of year at stoney. they are in deeper cooler water. your best bet is to fish by the south dam with minnows or a tube bait on a slip bobber if fishing from shore. or rent a boat and try the deeper weed beds. ill be out there walleye fishing friday afternoon.

thanks for the advice... my girlfriend brother and i went monday and rented a boat. we drifted across the beach and managed a few 12 inchers but it was hit a miss....
