A bud of mine introduced me to an 80-90 acre private lake this morning...My buddies fishing minnows had about 10 crappies when I left at 3:00. Biggest was almost 13"...They were staying 'til after dark so they were certainly well on their way to a nice batch of slabs...They were in 19 feet of water fishing 3-4 feet off bottom...

I set up shop with waxies in a spot in 11 feet of water getting my limit within a few hours...Most of were medium-sized at 7-8" but did get a few that were 9". Kept 15 for dinner. Ice was 3-4" but needed to watch the slushy areas...

-number of gills caught: over 50

-number of empty Bud Light cans: 6

-landing a 16" largemouth and being broke off by a pike while using 2 pound line: priceless... ;)

I live in the Hartland area and was wondering if the ice was good to go yet. I have a couple private lakes that I have access to that sound similar to the one you fished. I'll have to give them a try. good job on the gills.
