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

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
