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.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
