My family and I are camping at Bray Park this weekend and wondering if it is worth renting a boat or not. I would like to get the kids out and do some panfishing. Thanks in advance for any help!

There are numerous sunfish to be caught in the narrows. You need to sort them out, however, as most of them are small. A decent spot is on the northeast side of the main passageway through the narrows in 6 to 8 feet of water. Go about 50 feet northeast of a line running along the shallowest part of the narrows. If your kids want action and don't care a lot about how big the fish are, they will have a blast. There are large sunnies in the lake also, but I do not know where they are. Find weeds in 8 feet of water and you will probably find them. Hope you and the kids have a good time.

Norselander, Thanks for the post. Well I was going to rent a boat and take my 6hp to put on it. It would not start. So we were stuck with shore fishing. We found some shore areas that we caught some fish really, slow. It was a nice fall day.

On another note we saw on shore at least 4 dead northerns. Any Ideas, gut hooked, poor release, or what. I thought it was strange to see.

There have been some nice crappies being caught, but you have to fight with the sheepheads at the same time.

      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.
