That's Little Mac's territory up that way:big_smile: Shoot him a pm see what he says. I think it is this year though. Heard there will be time restrictions on the lake also. Like no FISHING after dark period. Or no fishing before 6am..something like that.

i hope there are no restricted hours. my experience is that new lakes are usually very good for crappie fishing for about the first 2 or 3 yrs. if this proves out i want to catch some slabs
