Lake Wausau near Rothschild, Wisconsin
Crappie fishing is fair right now. Green weeds and wood found close to deep water are the best spots. Stay as far away from crowds as you can. Fishing in the morning and in the evening is the best. The pike are also biting well right now. Fish pre spawn spots with large dead bait under tip-ups. The ice is still about 17 inches. Good luck fishing!
