Any one know what the panfish are like on this lake. I don't need hot spots. Just wondering what the size to expect. Plus what the ice is like. Any info would be great. Thanks alot, good fishing to all.

I haven't been out this year, but I will tell you this, if you can find them the perch on this lake are phenomenal and it does have some nice size crappies once you get on top of a school. As far as sweet spots go find pockets where you got 15 feet around ya and you find one spot maybe 10 feet diameter that goes down to 17 or more. You'll see where the people out there fish right hand side out from the launch is usually best. IF you go out there let me know how you do, I'm itching to get out there this year again.

I talked to a guy that said the panfish ar still on the rebound from the 2000-2001 winter kill. He also said there is a health northern population there. Although he was out there not to long ago and said it was slow. Looking to get there sat. I'll let you know how i do.

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
