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.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
