The pannies are barkin'...

2 posts in this topic

...during the latter half of the dog days. I hit the water after work with a good friend of mine and his son for an evening of chasing down some pan fish. Well, let me tell you, the chase didn't last long before we were onto one of the best late summer pan fish bites I have experienced in awhile. grin.gif The bull 'gills came out to play as did a few dandy crappies. We had 'gills from 8.0" up to 9.5" and some crappies that easily pushed the 12.75" mark. The nicest school of fish we found were relating to the outside edge of a "second growth" weed line that was as green as a weed line would be in the first part of June. The bigger fish were hanging ~3' down over 7' of water and were just tearing apart Northland Tackle Gypsy Jigs or pink and white Ratso's. shocked.gif These fish had shoulders and would pounce with authority which made for a great time out there. Lots of smiles around the boat tonight! For those of you interested in taking a look, I have a few new photos up on my website from this evening's outing. Enjoy! We kept enough for a meal for them and caught and released the rest.

Also, it is worth mentioning that for those looking to hook into quantity and quality as September and October approach, I still have openings available for the full moon trolling bite on Mille Lacs or the Lindy Rig and redtail chub bite on Gull! Let me know if any of you are interested by firing me an e-mail at info@tightlinesguiding.com or giving me a call at 612-756-2184.

Good luck and we'll see you on water!

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.
