What would be the best place to catch some DECENT panfish from shore after work this week?

DECENT huh? Well i think everywhere has some decent ones. it is just a matter of having the little ones leave it alone long enough and finding them. I am guessing you are looking for a meal? I would say go to the zum for such a thing. Or maybe the ccpits if you can get in there right now. Otherwise that is all i got. ike

Chester Woods has some good shore fishing for big bluegills up to 9" and an occasional large crappie. I've had the best luck with mini-mites and other small plastics, but live bait under a bobber works well too.

There are some decent pannies in that area, but i am not sure that you will get that many fishing from shore at the public fishing area. Some of the better fish this spring have come from that area but not close enough to the shore fishing spot that you could cast to it.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
