Any help on where folks are finding panfish on Big Marine in Scandia?

There's a sunken island on the west shoreline of the north arm, I've always done well there for sunnies and perch in both winter and summer. Crappies are probably gonna be suspended in the deeper water out on the main lake.

we were there on sunday, the first time I have ever fished it. we fished an 18 foot hump that was covered in grass and the smallest perch I had ever caught. it was towards the south end of the main lake. we fished deepest hole closest to the main lake in the south end of the north arm, 30 feet of water, lots of little fish on the bottom, but caught bigger (6-7") gills in about 10 feet. we actually were sight fishing those bigger gills....other than that it was pretty slow saturday, of course I think the weather had something to do with it

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
