Faribault Panfish?

5 posts in this topic

I'm going to bring my son to Faribault fishing on the 4th and was wondering about a couple of good lakes we could find some sunnies and crappies to keep him occupied.

Any info would be appreciated!

Thanks.

Try Shields, I have always had good luck there. Do you have a boat?

Yes I have a boat, any suggestions on what part of the lake, bait or depth to fish?

Thanks again.

Kelly/Dudley - Cant keep the sunnies off. Its great to keep the kids busy. I usually don't fish if my kids are with because I'm too bust taking fish off and baiting hooks. Also some large pike and bass..in the right spots.

Thanks alot for the info.! Are there any suggestions on what part of the lake to try for the sunnies, are they biting on worms or waxies and how deep.

I know its alot of info to ask but it would save me some time.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
