After work Friday I packed up the gear and took a trip a bit north to a lake that I have not fished in sometime after hearing of a decent crappie bite. The fishing was not fast and furious but I did manage to bring home some fish for dinner. The first fish of the evening was one to remember. I had a hit on the deadstick and ended up bagging a 15.25" fish just over 2#. It was her lucky day as I took it to a nearby house to have someone snap a photo and dropped her back down the hole and she kicked off like a champion (bucket pic was for size reference). I ended the day with around 15 fish of various sizes. I made it out on Saturday and had similar results with around a dozen caught. It was fun fishing and I was able to bring some fish over to mom and dad's for Sunday dinner last night which was top notch! I hope to get another crack at em on Wednesday.

Very nice fish! Congrats on the PIG! Were they sill relating to deeper basins or starting to come up shallower now?

Thanks guys. This particular lake I was fishing 21 FOW from the top of the ice outside of the weed edge. Most other anglers were fishing in the weeds with some nice bluegills being caught here and there but numbers of crappies was not great. Most of the active fish I have been catching have come after 7:00 with the big girl being the exception. Some were in wheelhouses over the middle of the basin and they were gone when I returned on Saturday which tells me they did not fair well. It has been primarily a minnow bite whether it be heads on a spoon or live on the deadstick. You can get the occasional fish early with euro larvae on the spoon but when the water gets dark they won't touch anything but minnows.
