The crappies are biting at South Fork boat launch access. Work around the brush piles if you know where they are. If you don't, then good luck or look to see where others have set up their shacks. The point straight across from the boat launch has a brush pile on it. On the same side as the boat launch to the right out towards the main lake has several brush piles on it. Look for clues and you should do pretty good. The slabs are there, just keep fishing and don't settle down in one place. My recommendation is to go out in the summer in a boat if you can and have a decent down/side imaging sonar and find those piles and mark them so you can go back on the ice. Oh yeah, theres plenty of ice too, enough for a quad.
