afternoon panfish

4 posts in this topic

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.

      Thanks Kunzi, that's is exactly the type of feedback I am looking for.  I didn't now Batteries + carried them now.  I was in there a year or two ago and they said they had stopped carrying them due to quality issues.  They must have worked those out.  Please post what brand/model you bought and how your test goes.    Thanks!

      Love my munchkin. I have mine set up as a spear shack.    One thing i do I do wish is that it pulled better with my snowmobile. Works great behind the wheeler but if I need to use the snowmobile I have major issues. Need to have studs added to make it work in the future.
