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.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff

      Thanks for the report MNfan.  Too bad fishing wasn't better for you. Good weather at least. Nice to get out this time of year.
