I also caught these.  Had 2 good bites at dark, but couldn't hook them.

All we caught all day. Did catch a few gills too about 16fow but no keepers. Was great being out on the ice and sight fishing some too. First time on the lake so at least we didn't get skunked lol.

You would think being in a area that these shiners are in like this .that they would attract some bigger fish and creat a feeding frenzy !? I would drill numerous wholes in lines marking 10 to 22 ft and could catch these things in every whole and every depth

Yeah that's really the only negative about my trip to there. That and no bait shops. Someone told me as they were coming off they had to stop in Rochester to get their minnows and others bait.

Ya that is an issue. I myself come from the west and have two bait shops along the way . One being butches bait and bass lake bait shop. Butches hasn't had minnows last a new but basslake bait has everything u need . A little high priced but if you need it you will pay it I guess. Maxi is a hard lake to fish at times but can produce a PB at any time

There is a bait shop on the west side of koontz lake also.  Depends on where you come from, but it is not too far from Culver.

maybe they are full with all those shinners to munch on. lol  turn your shanty into a bait shop dude!  at least start saving them in a tank at home to use.
real fishermen don't ask where you caught them.

Read somewhere else that it was around 8 except where the geese were keeping it open out in the middle for whatever that's worth.

Wow ! That is definitely a nice mess of some slabs. And that's a job well done on a lake that hard to pull crappies out of
