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.

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.

      decided to take the plunge and bought a Rapala Ion rechargeable. anybody have one and what do you use for a case?
