Haven't been up there lately but I hear the lake is way down, water is muddy, and hard to launch your boat. Crappie this time of year will be sluggish. If you should go buy your minnows in town. Because sometimes they are out of bait up there. While on the lake be sure you dress for the COLD north wind. Other than that you should have a good time. By the way... Keep your food put away because the skunks are very aggressive this time of the year due to the COLD north winds.
