  1. After many hours of diccusion with MY asteamed friend Whit. We have come up with this recomendation for a ice outing.
    Crystal lake has just about anything You want to fish for ie. perch, white fish, smelt, lake trout.
    The date will be Sat. 2-23-08 We will start the day with Beakfast at the Crystal Cafe in Benzonia right next to the Backcast Fly shop witch as bait (minnows, wiggers, waxies, ie.) at say 8:00am that will put us on the lake by 9:00 or 9:30.

    There are many places access the Lake from as the date gets closer We will have the Hot spots nailed down.

    All are welcome

    They are running wheelers and snow machines on the lake as of now. with much cold weather to come.

  14. That's the day after I get back from college to Traverse City for spring break and I absolutely would like to go and plan to be there for the outing! I'll also try to convince some of my buddies on this site to come with me as well. I would definately benefit from learning of some new spots on the lake to fish because I am only familiar with certain parts of the lake that I do well on. I do want to learn more about getting lakers and whitefish out of there.
