Panfish Bite

9 posts in this topic

Has anyone had good luck for sunnies or crappies lately. Don't need a lake or spot, was just wondering if you have got out lately. I am hoping on going out this friday after school.

Thanks for any help

I'm planning on May 5th and 6th being my first times on the water. Rumor has it they are starting to hit mid-day out on Little Rock (crappies) on the rock pile but that is just hearsay at this point. I'd imagine if the weekend is nice they should start turning on in the dark-bottomed bays.

Head out there and see what happens!

The sunfish are hitting in the shallows on Clearwater, they are running on the small side however.

Manwork, good to hear you are getting some fish to cooperate. My friends grandparents have a place on the lake and I have spent hundreds of hours shore fishing out there. From the dock we have caught tons of slab crappies, nice walleyes, perch, northerns, catfish, and other species. I might have to go up there and make sure they put the dock in correctly. grin.gif

      Me either but I have given a few a chance to be! Like the time one just opened our door up on LOW and stepped in at the same time as saying DNR. I did not see a badge and said where's your badge? He had a mini one inside his coat on his shirt!  We all laughed, showed him our lic's and fish and he went on his way!

      Had a wheelhouse rented out of Isle Saturday through Monday AM.  Went several places in search of shiners, they were hard to come by, so had a mix of suckers, rainbows and fatheads.   Was set up in 28' of water. 3 eye's total (2 in the 16" range and a 21.5").  Two came on rattle reel with a rainbow and plain hook, the other came on a bobber - same set-up.  Caught a few perch jigging.     Everything came on a whole minnow.  Nothing on heads, maggots, waxies etc.   Popped a bunch of holes in shallower water and got nothing on tip-ups or hole hopping.  Planned to go east of The Graveyard, but I thought I should get home before the ice storm hit.

      I'm sure it will be pretty slushy this weekend. But it will refreeze next week end. If the forecast is right anyway!

      I'm not really complaining, just sharing my experience.  And i never had any preconceived notion that all CO's were pricks, it just sucks that the one experience I had was far from pleasant.   One of my favorite shows is North Woods Law - the one where they follow the Maine DNR around.  Anyways,  not sure if they're just being nice because of the cameras, but they all seem like stand-up guys and are pretty good communicators.   I've always had respect for those guys and the work that they do.  All I would ask for in return is mutual respect and a simple "have a good day".
