Goodners or School Section?

3 posts in this topic

Probably taking the little ones out on Saturday. Looking for a consistent bluegill bite. I live just a few miles northeast of BJs bait on Clearwater and saw that these two lakes hold good numbers of panfish. Anyone been out on either to help a rookie out on which lake and depth to look for? Thanks.

The answer must have been Goodners because it certainly wasn't School Section. If you want to catch your limit of silver dollar sized sunfish and/or 4 inch crappies then this is the lake for you. The guys we talked to said nothing worth fishing in this lake other than pike at the moment. Everything else is so small even the pelicans and seagulls won't eat it!!

I've always done fairly well on Goodners. Nothing huge but lots of nice-sized sunnies and crappies.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
