Has anyone gotten into the panfish, and how?

I got out over new years, and caught some panfish jigging W.W. & E.L. in 20ft on the north lake. But just as a snow front came in. Always the case on that lake, you'd better be quick!

A couple of folks checking in on me hadn't any luck, just perch.

This lake has a combination that can be unlocked, I know receives relatively minimum pressure for lake of it's size for those of you FM'rs, Let's keep eachother posted and break this safe.

See ya on the ice.

Het fish hawk i fish the Pine lakes often and have only done real well on pan fish in the summer. This summer i had excellent luck with crappies and bluegills. One day last summer i caught about 15 crappies all over 9 with acouple to 11. it was an awsome day on big pine. By the way every crappie i caught that day went back. I continued to fish that spot for most the summer with good results. But as your post states i have been out 3 times this winter with very poor results i to often get frustrated with the panfish bite on the pine lakes. i would love some tips if there any people that would share some info. I know there out there quality sizes to. well i am going to give it another shot this week end but it's supposed to be -15as the high so i don't know how much moving i'll be doing. well good luck and any tips to unlock those Pine Lakes panfish would be great.

I have a friend who last year bought land up there, right by the north landing, and I know for a fact that the fishing can be tough on this lake. we spent two days this summer with nothing but bottle bass to show for our efforts.

He claims he has caught fish up there, but of course no one has witnessed it either. I would assume that the winter fishing would be better on that lake since there were so many summer pleasure boaters out there the two days we were out there.

      @leech~~ I believe the permit does require those houses to be moved out of the contest area.  Not necessarily kicked off the lake. That’s what permits are for, eh?  Looks like a great day for you two - congrats!  Might’ve been the lake, the spot or the fisher.  But I’ll go with the lake too.

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?

      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?

      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.
