Panfish

5 posts in this topic

Hey fellow fisherman

Was wondering what are some good lakes to find panfish (crappies and sunfish) around the mankato area, I would also like to chase some northern pike with some tipups. I am getting to excited for ice fishing I guess. I have checked out the MN DNR website and it looks like madison lake has some good numbers of fish. Thanks for any advice!

Frances, Madison, Washington, Duck and Rays Lake would all be decent bets!!

I would agree with Rozmans list plus I would add TeTonka but a little farther to drive. Washington can be simply awesome for those ice pannies.

I'd put German and Jefferson on the list too.

for pike on tip ups, rays is a good lake. set up in between the point and the 30ft hole, in 5-8 fow and watch for flags.

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
