Upcoming Weekend Panfishing

12 posts in this topic

Forecast of mostly sunny and up to 60 deg, after some rain to stir up the fish, and hungry panfish beefing up for the spawn; can it be a better weekend ahead? I know I'm bringing the wife out to show her how fun it can be, compared to the doldrums of a cold February.

I couldn't agree more. I'll be hitting up my favorite lake up north this weekend! Good luck to all grin.gif

Are Metro Lakes done for walking yet?

We walked out on Black lake last night. The shore was a little "iffy", but we made it alright. I think it might be a problem though in the next couple of days. It also looked like there were plenty of other spots on Minnetonka that the shore looked o.k to walk out from (just driving by and not actually checking), but I think it will be difficult on most metro area lakes by this weekend.

The access on Red Rock is getting pretty bad. Medicine's looking even worse.

As long as you can get on the ice from shore, the ice seems to be clear and strong yet out on parts of Minnetonka that I have been on this week. I'll be out there this weekend too. The crappies seem to be moving into the shallows with the sunfish more, and the perch have moved into shallow water to spawn too.. where I have been fishing. laugh.gif

Unless your initials are J.C. I think most lakes in the Metro are done.

I drove by Bush Lake in Bloomington this morning, very dark with terrible ice around the shore.

I saw a couple of guys out on Christmas yesterday but I chickened out. Things looked a little dark to me. Can anyone give an ice report for that lake? Thanks

I was out there for a short time on both Friday and Saturday. Rumor was that a couple guys went in on Saturday. It's probably best you stayed away. It was certainly spooky out there...

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff
