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.

Fisherman's Inn?

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 scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
