We went to Rouark.  All the lanes were ice covered from earlier launches.  It was 30° and it was going to be a while so we went to Mutton Campground launch.  We moved around trying several spots at several depths with no bites.  I finally got a couple of bites and had shorts.  We tired of the spot and moved on.  We hit bluff banks, gravel banks, points, etc.  After an hour or so of changing baits my partner caught some shorts on spring cricket.  I caught some on baby bass but mostly shorts.  Drug out electric chicken and began to catch enough that he quit changing colors and put one on.

We wound up catching 30 crappie, 15 whites, and 1 keeper walleye.  Only 8 of the crappie would measure. I brought them and the walleye home.  The whites were here and there but we found a concentration at 35 to 40' on a point.  After 10 in that many minutes we moved on because if there were any crappie the whites would not let them bite.

I'm thinking a guy could catch a boat load of whites with a spoon if he wanted to have fun and the lake doesn't freeze over.

What water temps did you see?

Most places 44°.   46° was the warmest.  That was north of Mutton Creek.
