Need some advice

5 posts in this topic

I am bringing my kids fishing this weekend. We live close to Allie and Preston but not sure how the pan fish bite is on those lakes. Any suggestions on where to take the kids for panfish? We do have a boat.

UMD, you'll find most people are pretty tight about there favorite fishing lakes. I also have a couple kids and took them to Washington last weekend with the boat. We caught some really nice sunfish along with some small ones. We only kept 5 to eat and released the rest. They sure made my daughters little pole squeel. Good luck. I'm sure there are other good panfish lakes around.

Thanks for the advice, I have thought about Washington, little out of my way but for the kids it would be fun.

stella has some nice sunfish, try the south shoreline. There is a small ditch/creek that runs into the lake on the south shoreline, with some lily pads in front of it. Could give this lake a try, Although I dont know if the lily pads are up to the surface yet.

Minnie Belle or Ripley would also be a good choice if you want sunfish or crappies.

       I hope it warms up this week so I can get the boat out again.  Mice or squirrels or chipmunks chewed a beautiful hole into my live well hoses so I had a good leak going on but it's fixed now.    Now I'm just waiting for some warmer weather

      Cliff - why do they quit taking spawn when they haven't filled up to capacity, and the spawn is still active?  Years ago my dad was convinced that the DNR took adult walleyes out of Vermilion and transferred them to other lakes; do you think that ever occurred?  The hatchery is beneficial to Vermilion and other lakes, but why do they plant fry in lakes where they have no chance of reproducing?  Aren't there enough lakes where they can reproduce to some extent to plant them in?

        Well it didn't take long for "that guy" to show up.    It shouldn't be too difficult to understand why I'd rather fish for trout than buy them at the store...   Do they holdover though? I thought that was a lake stocked right before freeze up and then all but completely fished out after the Winter opener.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff
