      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

good panfish lake?

Recommended Posts

Okay, which lake is a good panfish lake? My 4 year old has been on me daily to take him fishing again but I need to get him on a lake where he can catch something, perch, gills, anything. I was thinking about taking him out on Bemidji tomorrow with a bunch of waxies and see what happens, any ideas on where to start? Cameron, Northwoods landing, Paul & Babe?

not sure why you even want to use that little run down shack... cool.gif LOL!

We did very well, I was very surprised the boys stayed out there all day, had a heck of time keeping them outta stuff but it went well. I have to say it was probably one of the funnest times I've had as a dad so far, the boys were pulling fish outta the ice and having a blast.

Hail the Woodman... grin.gif

I told your wife at work that I am not responsible for you buying my shack. grin.gif She laughed and said that you all had a great time. You want to work this weekend, moving another house out to that spot? We could bring the 4 kids and cook dinner and catch some fish! \:D

The wifes would love us for that! ;\)

I sure hope you turned the furnace off with this cold weather or else we will be heating the minnnow's up all week! grin.gif

I left the down payment on the table in the shack... whistle.gif

Yeah, let me know what time you need a hand. I turned the furnace down to the 50 degree mark so you should have a couple lbs. of propane left... grin.gif

Oh, and one of your rattle reels is probably messed up, I went to close the curtains (it was dark) and when I pulled it down my hand caught some line and ziiiinnnnngggggg! Sorry, I could have fixed it but the boys were banging something on the truck, Sam had a wet boot/sock/foot due to stepping in a hole...figured I'd better get them outta there. mad.gif

Ever try Grace lake? I used to go out there in about 9ft. Sight fishing. Great time! Go out from the acess about 1/4 mile then go south about 1/4 mile. you should be in a prime spot. 3-6 is the best bite. Some crappies out there, big boys. There very hard to find out there though. Good luck.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!  
    • Nordern
      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
    • Wanderer
      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
