Panfish, Bass, Pike…oh My!

Best setup of the day was once again the Exude Comida rigged wacky in the Christmas Tree color. I noticed all my bites were coming from fish laying on the bottom, so I opted to put a 1/32 oz bullet split shot on to speed the drop.

Check out the fog in the background.

I also had a chance try out a new lure. It the “Fan-Tastic” Action Lure – Squeel-R. It has some unique concepts. Check them out.. http://www.actionlurescompany.com/

We also brought the pannie gear along and found a handful of crappies and a few gills.

Everything CPR'ed as usual.

Enjoy your time on the water, and buckle down because the water temps are starting to drop!

Nice fish, sounds like fun! Ive been wanting to try may hand at "backwaters" fishing. Every time I go out I get stuck in shallow water. Are there any areas that I can get my walleye boat in? If not I guess I will wait till I get a flat bottom.

Well, I've seen bigger boats back there and I know they are launching at the Pontoon slough landing (I think its called that). There are a few areas to be cautious of, but once your out in the channels its 5-8' deep pretty consistently. I would take a 17' V bottom boat out there, but I would't put the big motor down at all. Run the electric so its just barly in the water and that will help keep weeds off as well. There's much to watch out for, so I would take it slow and be cautious.

There are areas where you can enter the backwaters from the main river channel as well, but I've never done that.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
