Panfish?

8 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on a lake where a guy could go to catch some panfish during the day. i went out to duck yesterday from 1-6pm and they didnt start biting till about 5. I know the best fishing is early morning and late day but i was just wondering where someone could go to catch fish during the day also. my brother is coming with this weekend and has never ice fished so i just want to put him on some fish no matter what size they are. any suggestions would help thanks.

Lunchbox21,

You should try aheading out to Green Lake in Forest Lake area right off hwy 8. Lots of fun there, you'll caught crappies/sunnies all day long. There a bait shop on 8 that opens up at 6 a.m they may be able to give you more info. Good luck, have fun.

I was thinking of a lake a little closer to mankato, i've also tried Francis and german. I might give german a try.

I have had a few buddies that have been fishing Bakers bay as of late and doing fairly well. Even some bigger crappies in the deeper water suspended.

Before venturing out, don't forget to take a look at our selection of tackle, gear and other accessories in the Outdoor Pro Store.

      This ice season  has been in the books on the st croix for about a week now. I ended my year out there with a 50" sturgeon.

        What is working for 2 fishing buckets, ion auger & Vexlar for walking out on early/late ice?   Appreciate to hear what works for walking out for a hole hopping Crappie freak

      I have been busy with Work ... went down to check it out North access this morning.  Definitely good enough to walk out.  a tall guy walked a big sled right out.  was also a clam 2 seater pull over out on the ice.  The wind however is blowing very cold!  I do not have a sled for walking out ... so hoping for ATV ice soon!  I went searching at Princeton Wallmart if they had any leftover sleds, no go.  Will have to pick one up this week.   Bob
