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'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
