which of the three spunk lakes would be the best to target panfish and pike?

Upper is the best all around of the three. Has lots of structure and few nice points. If you can find a good map of the lake that would help as the lake has a bunch of humps. You can find a few maps of the lake on the DNR lake finder.

I have yet to fish Upper this year but last year did pretty good on the crappies around the grass island in the middle of the lake. Most people ice fish from straight out in front of the access to the grass island and around it.

I would have to agree that Upper is the best of the three all around. I did very well for crappies there this last summer, catching fish from 6" to 13". There is a lot of structure and the lake is full of sunnies. You may have to do some sorting but they're there. Honestly, I've never fished either of the three for pike so I can't help you there.

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.

      Very disappointing for the resorts as well as anyone else with a financial interest in the lake.  Me?  I release 99% of what I catch anyways, so the rule doesn't affect me much at all....well, I suppose it means I'll have my favorite flats all to myself for at least one more year.  I just really, really wish they'd let us troll after dark in the fall.    Why walleye fishermen aren't more amenable to catch and release, especially on a lake like Mille Lacs that's been on fire for, what, three years now, is beyond me.  Who wouldn't want to go and catch dozens of fish a day even if you have to let them go?
