Phelps bay area and Black lake are good panfish spots and easy to access. There is even a BP gas station that sells bait in the area. If you don't want to go that far west stop in at Wayzata Bait (just off Hwy 12) and they can point you in the right direction for the east end. Grey's Bay is a popular crappie spot in that area.

on the far west side, my favorite panfish bay is Halsteads- its fairly shallow and pretty easy to find weededges on.

Other good bays include Tanager, Seton, Black, or any of the other smaller-weedy bays. Good luck.

Just remember Halsteads is considered the most polluted bay on the lake.

I was out on crystal bay (off co. rd 51) before the cold snap. There were a ton of nice pan fish but you had to work hard to get em.

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
