Panfish Help on Sibley

2 posts in this topic

Hey Fellas. I was wondering if anyone could give a guy some advice for panfish on Lake Sibley. I'm new to the area and having my Bachelor Party. Were thinking of doing some sort of fishing tourney and any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance to anyone with info.

Hey BigRup,

I've done a couple of evenings on Sibley with Mom and her 2nd hubby mostly looking for crappies, last time was Brainerd Jaycee's contest weekend. We found them in 30 FOW suspended at 15-20' between the points just south of the north boat launch. Evening seemed to be the best bite (or maybe step-dad just likes to sleep in?) - the "Golden Hour". Try to find the remnants of a shanty village!

I'm heading that way again this weekendand will probably be on the ice Saturday afternoon/evening. Look for a tall guy in blaze orange camo sitting on a bucket if you're out there.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
