      Grays bay on Tonka there's parking by the Grays bay bridge try shallow 12-15ft. Drill a bunch of holes and hole-hop now that's it not really cold out.

      Can you suggest a location and depth?

      There's 3ft. of ice out there if or when you break through the crust there's probably about 3or 4 inches of water on top of the ice.

      Okay, I agree it's not worth a pissing contest, but the 15 years I spent in NW Indiana I never caught many smalls but always managed to find the 1.5 - 2 pounders. ...more I am not a biologist just an avid fisherman. either way that is a nice fish

      I'm sure the one-year-old Fish Lay minuscule amounts of eggs I'm talking about a 100 foot plus clear Coldwater lake that is frozen for nearly half the year ...more with ice thick enough to drive a truck on and snow cover allowing little light penetration The bulk of the weeds die off which creates low oxygen levels and lethargic fish this is all common knowledge if you're A fisherman from a cold climate your common knowledge differs being from a warm climate your talking about fish from a shallow warm water basin lake I'm sure that it's beneficial to remove the large fish so others can thrive must be nice! in the cold water barely above freezing under the ice for a cold blooded creature who's metabolism slows way down in the winter so Fish grow at a snails pace in comparison to a year-round growing cycle in the warm water Climat they're both crappies adapting to living in the Vastly different environments all they have in common is there both called crappies. I'm not here to get in a pissing contest.

      then please explain why the us records for specs are from the colder climates
    4. Page Berkholz 0
      And obviously your only considering the specs for your little corner of the world, According to the biologists fish in warm climates grow rapidly in the warmer water ...more a 3 year old fish from a warm climate is the equivalent to a 15 year old fish size wise from a cold climate..... fish are cold blooded creatures and you need to take that little fun fact into consideration.

      Obviously, they don't listen to the research up there. It's been proven that specs start reproducing at 1 year, and all species are very resilient and self ...more sustainable.

      That's funny in the North country we don't keep fish much larger than that,larger fish have superior genetics,produce more eggs and should keep swimming,the ...more 30 some fish I pulled through the ice last night are all still swimming.

      I throw ones that size back so that they can grow big enough to make a meal
