Was gonna go to greys bay for some panfish action but sounds like everythings on the small side. Taking my girlfriend out and would like to get on some sunnies and then crappies towards dark. We're lookin to take home a small meal most likely. Any info on other bays to find decent pannies?

Sorry it took so long to answer. Try either Black Lake or Seton it is my home turf. You will see all the holes that people have drilled. On Seton for sunnies just try around the north end you will see all the permanments parked there. I have been using a ant bait with a waxworm no wheight and a pencil shy bit. they have stacked in the whiole water column. I am going out tonight after work. It is Friday look for a red Chevy and a little flip over thats me. I will be on Seton from about 2 PM and on. If anyone else is interested come out and join me grin.gif

If you go when you enter the lake look to the west you will see bunch of permanent houses there is a deep hole there I would try that area for crappies. One of my spots was to the left of that area you will see a channel that runs around the back of the floating bog. I usually drill holes in fron of that channel in about 13 fish for sunnies. really I would drive thru to Seton and try the sunnie fishing there. When it gets near dark maybe move back to Black. I will be out there Sunday we have to move our houses off thwe lake. So I should be there most of the day. If not on Black I might be over at Seton. I drive a red Silverado we will also have a four wheeler out pulling off the houses. i hope to see you out there.

Ill probably start on seton and then move out to black. Brought my girlfriend with me recently to chisago and she had a great time. Got her on some fat gills and some 9-11in crappies after dark. I think she caught the most out of 5 of us and caught the biggest crappie at 12inches

      We really need some new leadership handling regulations and a change on who they are obtaining input from. Find me one person that does not believe that Mille Lacs Lake is one of Minnesota's top 5 walleye destinations and yet it has the most screwed up regulations year after year for last 10 years or so.   Catch and release for walleyes? No problem. I can deal with catch and release but these closures I am sick and tired of. Give us back night fishing and surely give us back fall night fishing!   If you want to reduce hooking mortality then it should be done with some common sense regulations and not through closures.  I can't think of another lake that this type of logic of closures is being used to reduce hooking mortality.  Barbless hooks seems to be the most common attempt at other locations. No live bait is another common but more extreme method. Find me 1 person that would disagree with the effectiveness of reducing hooking mortality of these 2 methods. No, surely not is effective as every one sitting at home on their couch or out fishing on another lake.   I almost gave the DNR some credit last spring with the announcement of no live bait. Quite a ballsy move I thought but surely effective but then they caved................   I would like a honest conversation with the state of the walleye population in the lake. It surely has some holes in size structure which we can argue on what is to blame this on but it surely is loaded with walleyes.

      north an hour on monday was about 15 to 20 inches. really weird drilling thru it.

      Nothing open except the river in the LF area. Checked a small lake a few minutes from the house monday and was still 11-13 inches of ice. Was getting very honeycombed and melting quick. I would guess it shouldn't be too much longer if not far south things are opening.
