Want to get the son out.

4 posts in this topic

I would like to get the NEW son out fishing. It is my going to be wifes son. I just gave him a new rod and real for christmas (little early) and I would like to get him into some crappies and or sunfish. He is 11 and wants me to make him my famous fish so we do need afew to keep. I have always fished frances early and done well on crappies in the evening and morning but from what I have heard they are small this year and I would also like to try Madison but do not know where to start! Any help would be great.

p.s. I fish alot and have every thing needed just need spots.

Thanks guys!!!

For panfish a safe bet would be on Francis.

If you know where Greenland Supper Club is/was drive past it and there is a parking area on the N/W corner of that bay.

It is a long walk to the grassy point that runs north to south so I would try fishing and working your way towards that area. Not too many people fish past the point but most settle pretty close to it or at least half way between the point and the access.

History has shown that that bay is a good place to start.

I have not been out yet this year but I would assume there will be plenty of people out there after sunnies and crappies.

GOOD luck and keep us posted. The forum has been pretty quiet but I am sure it will pick up this weekend.

Maybe you would care to share your recipe ???

Hey Klbowe,

Thanks for the info. I normally do start at Francis but from the few people I have talked to the Crappies are running on the small side but I think I will be going there anyways. Atleasted it will be something to catch. My fish batter consists of crackers that turn to powder in the blender. Add Cajun seasoning (to taste) and alittle garlic powder. Roll them in egg/milk batter then the cracker crumbs and add to hot oil! Really simple but he hated fish till I made it so he says it should be famous so I will take the glory! cool.gif I will let you know what happens. I hope it is not to windy out there so we can get out. It is great he is really exicted to go out for the first time!

Thanks for the info!!!!

Sounds like he is a pretty lucky guy.

Try not to let him get cold or too bored and he will be hooked !

Good luck to the two of you.

      I'm wondering the same thing!  Low temps have been dropping below freezing and in shallow water that temp has to drop multiple degrees in a night.  I'm wondering if they went back to the breaks and are waiting again?
