Big Lake area day bite pannies

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys, i'll be heading out in the big lake area for some pannies this sunday. I'm going w/ my cousin and his two little boys, and we wanna get in on some fairly good action on some craps or sunnies. Size doesn't have to be great, mostly looking for some action. We'll be on the lake around 1:30 and I have to be off by about 4:30, any tips? If you don't wanna put it on here feel free to email me @ jeff _ lynch55 at yahoo dot you know

You could always try Big Lake. The last time I was out there, it was one after another for the 4 to 5 inch sunfish. That was a mid-afternoon outting and I was fishing just off the edge of the bar that extends out from the beach.

Good Luck.

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.

      What day is that on

      Excellent question. In the beginning of the day it was out away from everything and everyone. Visibility was low so I chose to stay within sight of others in case of problems, but certainly far away. Found a group of structure points that we were extremely happy about. Ranged from 16ft to 33ft on navionics. Morris point-cyrus area.   Fished that entire zone we had found, which is probably 1.5miles x 1.5miles give or take. Fished inside it with varying depths, fished the edges, fished the curves, then when it started to rain we set up the house and fished about 15yds off of everything in 30ft. Caught 5. Biggest was 10in.   The slush is making it difficult to manuever, I have tracks and am concerned of getting that stuck.    Unsure what happened over night with the weather now. Today we may need to stick to the old resort trails and work the road areas, plenty of vacated real estate out there...    Chains, tracks, or tires. With all this slushy mess... It's a hard choice and everything is a limitation.   Plan to try and work 18ft and out.... If you see a group of guys doing summersaults and bouncing around like they have welding sparks in their pants, you'll know that's me and we found some activity.
