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.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
