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.

      Plus, resorts would love to have you, now that no one goes to them due to the closing of walleye fishing.

      Must of been tough to sit there looking at the lake and not fish! Can't believe it was 60 up there today!? Not what I was hoping for. Didn't hit 50 down by the cities today.

      Looking at staying at Thunderbird or Sha Sha resort.  We want to spend some time fishing the Canadian side as well.  How long does it take to get from there to the Canadian Causeway bridge?  I've got a Lund ProV with a 200hp and usually run about half throttle.

      What amoerage batteries do you have? I finally got my gearbox back from clam this week..... a little to late... I am so glad they used us for product testing and ended up screwing me out of going electric this year, I am selling it early next season and going with the k-drill
