    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.

    Thanks

    Butch,
    The Crystal Cafe, according to a sign on the door, will open tomorrow.

    I would love to go and will pending on a situation,I work with a fellow member and he knows that i don,t have a license D.L. that is so I,am at the mercy of others unfournatley.But awesome individuals always seem to give a helping hand/ride.Hopefully UB will come thru for me if not,I live less than a mile from the boardman as i know their are other members that live in traverse so if UB don,t come thru I will pay for your gas and buy you breakfast,if your willing to pick me up and allow me to fish that would be great any members think about it please.Looking forward to it.Fish On My Fellows:fish:

    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.
