good panfish lake?

7 posts in this topic

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.

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.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?

      These stats have a lot to do with it!  GF=138 GA=92 One of the highest and lowest in the NHL as of today that is huge.

      Thanks for the report!  How big were the walleyes?  Keepers? Care to share your tactics?  Time of day, how deep you were fishing, type of bait?  I'm new to metro walleye fishing and trying to hone my skills a bit.
