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.

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.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
