Black Crappie - Good: The flooded trees in the deeper water is the place to go. About 12 to 15 foot down.
Bluegill - Good: Look for them to be out in the trees also.
The ice condition got hurt by the rain, drill lots of test holes and be extremely cautious around the edges and the thicker stands of trees. This is before the forecasted rains on Thursday.
