most lakes will have red hot fishing this time of year for panfish. They will be making their way in to get a belly full before spawning, then they will be in spawning. The females will come after the males, and these are the big fish that are fun to catch. Just try not to take too many. It is good to let them spawn to keep good fishing for years to come.

Around this time of the year I wouldnt think about keeping spawning or close to spawning fish. I feel bad in the winter when I take a crappie full of eggs! Its a lot of fun sometimes to throw some monsters back.

Yeah you are right. I really like the release shots that you get while you are holing your fish in the water reviving it. Makes you feel good when you catch one and release it.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
