I GET TO GO FISHING! FINALLY! As much as I hate to admit, this is my second time fishing this year. I am taking the boss man out for some panfish. I am hoping I can ask anybody for some guidance where to keep him busy and happy. Last week I took him and a buddy out to German for a less than favorable outing. The bites were few and a little too far between. They did pretty good though. I was maybe thinking of heading to Madison this time. Anybody have any thoughts? I hate to do this but if you have a spot and want to keep it hush hush............bmulman@hotmail. I'm clueless on where to go and boy am I ever hungry for some fresh fish and sweetcorn!

if you are heading out to madison you should try the narrows. we caught some crappies there the other night.

Look shallow in the sand, regardless of the lake. German, Madison, Washington or Jefferson would all be good choices.

If you don't mind a short drive, try going to St. James. There is an access on the south side of the lake. Just idle out past the weed edge into 6 or 7 feet of water and float around out there in any depth between 6 and 13 feet. Bluegills everywhere with lots of nice eaters. My family hammers them every time we go. Last time I was out there we had 5 of us in the boat and never had less than 2 guys with their line in the boat taking off a fish for the 2 hours we were there. Probably caught 300 bluegills in that time. Non stop action with decent quality. Plenty of other fish in this little lake as well. Stumble upon the occassional crappie, largemouth, pike or walleye while doing this fishing. Oh yeah, and I think they will bite on anything, wax worms, leeches, crawlers, power bait, probably even tube jigs and the like.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
