Panfish Bite is on

18 posts in this topic

Nice sunnies and crappies are hitting late afternoon (after 4 pm). Rat, Fleming, WIlkins and Portage are all producing. Sunnies like panfish leeches, worms, or power bait on lite jig heads in 6-8 feet of water adjacent to the weeds. Around 6-7pm, the crappie start to come in and is time to switch to small jigs (1/32 oz) with white or yellow twister tails and slip bobber set just above the weeds (3-4 ft down); cast to deeper water and slow retrieve in. Later on, cast parallel to weed line and slow retieve in. Great time to take the young ones out for some fast action...and a cooler time of the day. Good Luck

It appears that when I scroll down the forums, there are always 4 or 5 viewing the McGregor/Aitkin forum, but very few are commenting or replying. Just my observation over the last couple of years.

Once again Eyehawk, it appears the center of your universe is Aitkin county. I suppose that right there explains a few things...

Take a step back and knock off the ownership attitude. If you can find fish - great - don't try to cop an attitude on users of this forum. It's all about working together, sharing info.

So what does that explain then?? Aitkin County is not center of my universe, but I do love it up there, and I am planning on living there someday. Like I stated in the Big Sandy thread I do have buddies that live around there, and they have taken me fishing to some of their lakes and I in turn promised to keep my mouth shut. And I’m not copping an attitude here its how other people feel towards others, being from different parts of the state.

83walleye if it was all about that then I would be for it, but sometimes on this website there is too much info put on this website, and not for the best of the fishery of the lake for the size of the lake. Aitkin County does not have that many big lakes except Big Sandy and maybe Bay Lake. So all I’m saying is try to keep the small lakes info to a minimum, because you may want a "hot" report and go out and catch a meal or limit of fish, but then so does everyone else that travels up north, and if that happens to a small lake even the size of Big Sandy can't handle it. I've seen it done to lakes in the Brainerd and Bemidji area, where the bait shops and even on here a guy posts a hot report and the lake you were fishing the day before or week before is jam pack with ice houses or boats. I really don't care if I show an ownership attitude because I do know I don't own the lakes I am just saying use your own intuition and fishing knowledge to catch them or watch and observe to see what other fisherman use. Don’t just go by reports or where people tell you to fish or what to use. It's ok to try new lures or methods or to get skunked cuz that is fishing. Learn from your mistakes, keep trying and move on. As for helping a guy sure I will in person if I think their a true and honest fisherman, but not on here, to many people can read your posts/reports because it is the internet, and I really don't trust people in general, especially guys looking for an easy way out to catch fish. No offense to any of you guys on this thread, like 83walleye, or CJ...I mean I just took your question the wrong way thats how I responded to it..sorry for being a smart with you, its just how I responded and felt at the time.

I just wanted to take the time to reply to these posts. I am in total agreement with eyehawk. I have been going to Big Sandy for about 15 years now, and I have seen what these boards have done to this lake. I think anyone who has been up there over this span can say the same. I spent numerous hours looking for crappies and walleyes on this lake, trying this and trying that. Once I found them, I would have my fun, then look for new ways, and new places to fish. I keep MAYBE 5% of the fish I catch. I can now go to this lake on any given weekend and catch as many crappies as I could possibly want, and can usually catch walleyes if I take the time to work at it. However, many of the spots I fish are now heavily fished, whereas 5-6 years ago, they were not. Word has spread, and people who have no idea on how to catch fish on their own, are POUNDING LIMITS AFTER LIMITS and keeping all of them. Maybe part of that was my fault, I let someone know, who let someone know, etc..... I took a client from work up there, who now takes his friends up there, for the sole reason of bringing a limit of fish home. I read this forum to see if I too can pick up a new trick or two, but it makes me ill when I see some of my favorite spots come up on this board. As someone once told me on one of my first trips up there...........if you spend time on this lake, you too will find fish. Isn't that the fun of fishing? The fun of the hunt, and finding them on your own? If that isn't fun for you, you might as well call it "catching" and not "fishing". I for one, do not tell a sole where I catch fish on this lake anymore. I take my wife and kids, and maybe a few people who like to fish, but don't have the money to own a boat. I will let all on this board know a little secret.........there are a lot of places to catch fish on this lake without having someone tell you where. It only takes a little time on the water, and for me................THAT IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT!

To each, his own. Passionate fisherman want to do all they can to reap the benefits of their investment of time on the water - can't fault you for that, guys. Keep up the good work - there're still alot of fish out there to be caught - keep on keepin' on...

Did not mean to raise such a fuss!!! After all 10 crappies and 15 Sunnies is the limit and those who want to get their yougsters out for some clean fun deserve an accurate report on what is working. I think any of the lakes in Aitkin and Crow Wing County will produce panfish using similar baits and locations. Too bad there are some who think this forum is causing too much distress on the fish populations; I do not suscribe to that thinking. Good Luck catching with the youngsters and remember to return the fish you are not going to eat to the lake.

So the 5 people reading this thread are ruining the fishing in Aitkin County?

Everyone that reads this thread will all decide to go to the lakes in the fishing report. They'll all decide to go on the same day, to the same lake, use the same bait that the fish will bite on, max out their limits, and rob the lakes dry...then tell everyone they know...and they'll tell someone, pretty soon Aitkin County will be changed to Ain'tworthfishing County, everyone will try to sell their cabins...the economy will crash....a great depression will be started....all because one guy was nice enough to share a fishing report...

Wow.

And all the fish in the lake are inside my cone angle on my transducer in the winter, and that's why everyone groups so close to me.

Yep.

I am the best. And you could be too if you read my posts. But then you'd ruin all my fishing. And then I wouldn't be very good. And then niether would you. HA HA

Thanks Bigsandy, you took the words right out of my mouth. But at least you've seen what I have seen and experienced when you go out fishing. As for United, you don't get what BigSandy and I are saying. Im not talking about the 4 or 5 people that read the posts...you don't have to be a member of this site to read the reports and posts on here. It is the internet and this site can be hit by hundreds to thousands of people a day for an example. So think about it, and how many people actually view your posts/reports. I figured someone would blow what I am saying out of proportion, and it had be United. But like I said in my previous post not many lakes in Aitkin county are not that big, (Big Sandy, and thats about it, because Farm Island and Bordon are not that big, get your plat map book out or maps out and you will see) just like lakes around the St. Cloud area, they aren't that big and all it takes is a hot bite report to get guys out there and give the lake alot of pressure and then it turns back into an average lake again. All I am saying is if your going to report on a small lake just think about it first. Just because you came up one weekend and found this small lake and did well doesn't mean you have to report or what i call brag about it, because you fished it one time, and need to tell your life story about it. Thats what gets me, they don't think about the locals or others who fish the lake or live on the lake, and want it to keep it a great fishery and a quiet lake with not alot of traffic. If you read under RogerR post on "favorite panfish lakes" thread under the "Sunfish, Crappie" category, he explains it pretty well and so does Corey B. I've read many of Corey's posts and he does make alot of sense and I do follow his way of thinking, because I believe there has to be more guys like him that purposely fish for crappies and bluegills, and use his policy and methods of what to keep and what to release back. Because his style of fishing of releasing the big bull gills and big bluegills, and keeping the smaller 1/2 lbers to eat. I understand that and I believe that it works too for the overall bluegill population so the big bull gills can protect the nests and by keeping some of the smaller bluegills it gives other fish a chance to eat and so the fish do not get a year class that is stunted. Makes sense to me.

UJ - great comments and I appreciate your great sense of humor!! Today's "hotspots" don't necessarily mean a thing about tomorrow's "hotspots". For crying out loud Eyehawk, take a pill and quit talking with a forked tongue - now I 'spose you'll deny you get info from this website to catch fish...LOL!

    • Thanks friends, much better luck today, but worked pretty hard. 30-35' rainbows kept two 15's and a 16. Dog will get her allotment of a 1/4 filet for her time on the boat and able to save some in the freezer for my family!!!

       

       

    • Live to hunt another day by wearing a life jacket or float coat
      Hunters preparing to hit the water this fall in pursuit of ducks, geese and other wild game are reminded to include life jackets on their hunting gear checklist.
      “Hunters in Minnesota are trained from a young age to always put safety first. For duck and goose hunters, that means always wearing a life jacket on the water, no exceptions,” said Lt. Col. Greg Salo waterfowl-safetyof the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Enforcement Division.

      Each year, more waterfowl hunters die from drowning than from other types of hunting accidents. Swamping, capsizing and falling overboard are all common factors leading to these deaths, but in nearly all cases the hunter would have survived had they been wearing a life jacket.

      “Before launching the duck boat, make sure everyone on board is wearing a life jacket or float coat,” Salo said. “It’s the one item that greatly increases your odds of surviving a water emergency and living to hunt another day.”

      The wide variety of comfortable, camouflage life jackets designed specifically for waterfowl hunting includes inflatable vest and belt-pack styles, insulated flotation jackets, and foam-filled shooting vests with quilted shoulders and shell loops.

      “Typical foam-filled vests or float coats provide optimal insulation against cold air and the effects of hypothermia, but without question, the best life jacket for waterfowl hunting is the one you will actually wear,” said Lisa Dugan, DNR boating and water safety outreach coordinator. “Choosing a life jacket style that works for you, and wearing it every time you’re on the water, is not only a good choice – it could save your life.”

      At the very least, all boats must carry one U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket for each passenger, and boats longer than 16 feet must also have a throwable flotation device immediately available. Children under 10 must wear a life jacket.

      Other water safety tips for duck hunters include:

      • Don’t overload the boat; take two trips if necessary.
      • If wearing hip boots or waders, learn how to float with them on.
      • Stay near shore and avoid crossing large expanses of open water, especially in bad weather.
      • Share your trip plans with someone and advise them to call for help if you don’t return on schedule.
      • Use a headlamp, spotlight or navigation lights to alert other boaters of presence in dark and/or foggy conditions.
      • Carry a cell phone or personal locator beacon in case of emergency.
      • Don’t drink and boat and don’t drink and hunt

    • The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is seeking applications for grants to support off-highway vehicle (OHV) trail projects and new trail proposals.

      Application forms for projects on existing trails are due to a Parks and Trails area supervisor’s office each year by Nov. 30. New trail proposals are accepted throughout the year.

      First authorized in 1984, Minnesota’s OHV trails assistance program is a cost-share program intended to help develop and maintain trails for use by all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), off-highway motorcycles (OHMs) and off-road vehicles (ORVs).

      Known as the OHV grant-in-aid (GIA) program, it helps to establish and maintain recreational trails at the initiative of clubs and other organizations, with the support and participation of local government sponsors.

      Organizations can apply for GIA funds through counties, cities or townships. All aspects of OHV trail development and maintenance are eligible for funding, including project administration, site planning, trail improvements, land acquisition for trail development, and trail maintenance. Proposals with a focus on maintaining or improving existing trails and trail systems will be assigned a higher priority.

      Program and application information is www.dnr.state.mn.us/grants/recreation/gia_ohv.html
      or by contacting the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or 651-296-615, or 888-646-6367 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

    • The Department of Natural Resources will sell 40 northern Minnesota parcels in three public oral bid auctions in October and November.

      • Tuesday, Oct. 25 – Nine northwestern Minnesota parcels will be auctioned at the County Administration Building in Bemidji.
      • Thursday, Oct. 27 – 27 northeastern Minnesota parcels will be auctioned at the Lake County Courthouse in Two Harbors.
      • Thursday, Nov. 3 – Four parcels in north-central Minnesota will be auctioned at DNR Brainerd area office.

      The properties include unimproved recreational land and residential lakeshore parcels in Aitkin, Cass, Clearwater, Cook, Crow Wing, Hubbard, Itasca, Lake, and St. Louis counties. There is a wide range of sizes and land uses in this selection of sales, from a small 0.80 acre former water access site on Pine Lake in Clearwater County to a 200-acre recreational parcel in Breitung Township in northeastern St. Louis County.

      The DNR regularly sells land which is no longer needed for its original conservation purpose, after a thorough internal review, and after giving state agencies and local governments opportunities to purchase the land. Proceeds from sales of lands the DNR had once acquired go to the DNR division that had managed the land and are used to purchase and develop lands better suited to that division’s conservation goals.

      Many of the parcels to be sold are School Trust lands. Proceeds from these auction sales are deposited to a fund that benefits the state’s public school system. School Trust land by law can only be sold at public auction.
      Bidders are advised to obtain and view the property data sheet, be familiar with the property, minimum bid price, and terms and conditions of sale prior to attending the auction.

      To obtain a property data sheet or terms and conditions of sale call 651-259-5432, or 888-646-6367 or email landsale@dnr.state.mn.us. The property data sheets are also available online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/lands_minerals/landsale/.

    • State forest trail use and management in northern St. Louis and Lake counties will be the topic of an open house, Wednesday, Oct. 19, 6-8 p.m., at Vermillion Community College, Room NS111, 1900 East Camp St., Ely.

      During the open house, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources staff will provide maps of existing trails, answer questions and take comments and suggestions from the public.

      Between 2003 and 2008, the DNR inventoried all routes and designated trails for various types of recreation within state forests.

      This current project will reevaluate the designations made during the initial review of the Bear Island, Burntside, Insula Lake, Lake Isabella, Lake Jeanette and Sturgeon River state forests in St. Louis and Lake counties.

      Changes could include redefining how trails can be used, determining options for motorized trail routes and trail connections, closing unsustainable trails, designating “areas with limitations” during hunting and trapping activities, and developing new hunter-walking trails. Changes to state forest trail designations must be made by commissioner’s order and published in the State Register.

      Written comments may be submitted to foresttrailplanning.dnr@state.mn.us or by mail to Joe Unger, DNR Parks and Trails, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155-4039. The DNR will accept written comments through Nov. 2.

    • Sartell artist Scot Storm won the 2017 Minnesota Pheasant Habitat Stamp contest. The painting was selected by judges from among 15 submissions for the annual contest sponsored by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

      Storm’s painting will be featured on the 2017 pheasant habitat stamp. His artwork has been featured on the pheasant stamp in 2011, 2006 and 2000; and on the waterfowl stamp in 2015, 2009 and 2004.

      The pheasant stamp validation for hunting is $7.50 and is required for pheasant hunters ages 18 to 64. For an extra 75 cents, purchasers can receive the validation as well as the pictorial stamp in the mail. It also is sold as a collectible. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to pheasant management and habitat work.

      Four entries advanced as finalists and were selected Sept. 22 at DNR headquarters in St. Paul. Other finalists were Mark Thone, second place; Nicholas Markell, third place; and Mark Kness, fourth place.

      The DNR offers no prizes for the stamp contest winner, but the winning artist retains the right to reproduce the work. The 2017 pheasant stamp will be available for sale in March.
