A buddy of mine and I went ice fishing two weeks ago at Nimisila Reservoir. Let me tell ya, the crappie bite was hot! We had a whole bucket full of slabs (9 inches and larger). Also went to a private lake near us and caught another bucket full of crappie. Decent ice fishing year all around! Wish I could have got out on the big lake for gators, but that will have to be for next year. I'm ready for open water and to fish some bass tourneys!
