Panfish Action

6 posts in this topic

Anybody know if the crappies or sunfish are active in the area? Specifically, Lake Miltona.

Both are hitting pretty well on Miltona. Look for about 10 feet over weeds. But, be ready to sift through a million perch!

Many of the smaller lakes in the area are producing quite well too. Seems the panfish are turning on all over right now and I expect it will only get better.

Yes, last week I was catching 3/4 to 1 lb crappies on one lake, this weekend I was catching 1/2 to 3/4 sunnies on another lake. Great fun and great eating.

I was out on Miltona this weekend. RBuker was definitely right, we went through about a million perch. We moved about 20 yards, and started catching some nice sunnies around 3:30. Saw a few crappies on the camera, but no takers. Everything shut down completely after dark. Anybody else fishing pannies on Miltona?

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?
