So I am trying to put some tips together abot going out for crappies at dusk/night. Obviously I will make sure the lake is a crappie lake by using the DNR site. Once I find a lake, in these mid-winter conditions, do I just look for the deepest spot and fish there? What if a lake has 2 basins, or deep spots. Lets say one is 25 feet and one is 35 feet. Lets also say the 35 foot basin has been/is being fished heavily. Would it make sence to try the 25 foot?
It can't hurt to try. staying mobile has been the key to catching fish for me lately. They are moving around in deeper waters so I'm starting near the area where I assume they came from (shallower bays or mouths of those bays) and really drilling til I mark fish while I move towards the deeper areas.
Recently I was in a huge bowl shaped lake and although 90% of the water was 30 ft deep I found all the crappies moving around a hump that came up 5 or 6 ft. I ended up setting out my portable right at the edge of that hump and the night bight was really good.

Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~ Chuck Clark
