Saturday AM Pannies for Ma

8 posts in this topic

My mother asked me to put the wheelhouse on some panfish tomorrow AM for her to get out for her once a year ice fishing trip. Action would be more important than quality as long as some are still keeper size for her to put together a meal. I've been really busy at work and doing some coyote hunting so I haven't been on the fish in quite a while. I live on Tetonka but that bite sounds pretty finicky. I am thinking Duck but heard they are a bit small, can you still sort some keepers out there? Any other suggestions for lake/depths to start looking before I drop the wheels. Ma would really appreciate it, thanks.

You will get some keeper sunnies at duck, plus a few bonus crappies to keep.

Really appreciate the info. I live on the lagoons, decent spring bite off the dock and an occasional catfish amongst the bullheads in the summer. Any suggestion on depth to start on Duck to have a chance at a few of those crappies? Thanks.

If your heading to Duck, swing in to Reel Fishing, they'll have more info than you need on that lake.

      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.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
