panfish on the chain?

6 posts in this topic

Is anyone getting any decent sized panfish on the chain? I don't need locations or presentations. Thanks.

I went out there today as well. I had a great time with my two boys. Kept a pail of really nice sunnies with the smallest being about .4 pounds and the biggest just over 3/4 lb. Just about every fish we caught was big. It was really fun.

Didn't catch any pound bluegills Schloe? How long was the 3/4 pounder if you don't mind me asking?

Was out there on Friday and had a blast with my two year old.

Caught lot of sunfish they went about 3 to a pound and a few 10 and 11 inch crappies. My 2 year old also caught a 2 1/2 lb catfish on his spiderman rod which he thought was pretty nasty.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.

      Great review Rick G! I've always been all for Gas augers but it seems seems electric is better than I think it is. I could defiantly see myself making the move in the near future.
