Any one know what the panfish are like on this lake. I don't need hot spots. Just wondering what the size to expect. Plus what the ice is like. Any info would be great. Thanks alot, good fishing to all.

I haven't been out this year, but I will tell you this, if you can find them the perch on this lake are phenomenal and it does have some nice size crappies once you get on top of a school. As far as sweet spots go find pockets where you got 15 feet around ya and you find one spot maybe 10 feet diameter that goes down to 17 or more. You'll see where the people out there fish right hand side out from the launch is usually best. IF you go out there let me know how you do, I'm itching to get out there this year again.

I talked to a guy that said the panfish ar still on the rebound from the 2000-2001 winter kill. He also said there is a health northern population there. Although he was out there not to long ago and said it was slow. Looking to get there sat. I'll let you know how i do.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
