Panfish starting

5 posts in this topic

The panfish are slowly makeing there way into local bays,canals and lagoons. Yesterday I was out on some local lakes and managed to pick up a nice mixed bag of fish, crappies, bluegills and some large perch. I noticed there were alot more crappies in then bluegills right now.Things will change as the water warms up more. I did manage to catch a few nice 13 inch crappies. By the end of the week things should really be takeing off. I found Flu-Flu's and ratso's tipped with waxworms to be the ticket to catch the fish. Grab a rod and bucket and look to some of the best shore-fishing of the season to happen in the next couple of weeks.

Hoping to get into some panfish here soon. I heard the weather was supposed to regress a little from these unseasonal 70degree temps so hopefully that wont affect them.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
