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’ve had the same issue with keeping them alive. Dead bait works way way better than live bait anyway. Defiently going to give that a try wanderer!

      I’ve saved dead/dying suckers before.  Pull them as soon as you can and freeze em.  I’ve sprinkled them with salt before bagging and freezing.  Fish them on the bottom. There was a time I targeted big pike with big minnows and would actually kill a minnow before sinking it to the bottom with one of my lines. As with everything, it’ll work better some places at some times, not as much as a live minnow other times.  Later season when pike cruise just below the ice scooping up the dead loss of the winter, suspending your dead sucker a foot below the ice can be your big fish ticket.

      If you really want to challenge yourself, make the "hook" mostly barbless, which is what one of my kids somehow managed to do. Just aim for the toothiest area.....

      What lake? I'm in Moundsview so I like hearing about visibility nearby.  Struggling to find clear water this year. Poor visibility on Forest, Clear, Centerville so far. WBL has good visibility. But I hate spearing on muskie lakes. Plus, WBL doesn't have big pike per surveys.

      The only tying groups I know are here in the Twin Cities, and there are quite a few that gather during the winter months.  I'm not sure of any in the SW near you.
