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.

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
