Phelps bay area and Black lake are good panfish spots and easy to access. There is even a BP gas station that sells bait in the area. If you don't want to go that far west stop in at Wayzata Bait (just off Hwy 12) and they can point you in the right direction for the east end. Grey's Bay is a popular crappie spot in that area.

on the far west side, my favorite panfish bay is Halsteads- its fairly shallow and pretty easy to find weededges on.

Other good bays include Tanager, Seton, Black, or any of the other smaller-weedy bays. Good luck.

Just remember Halsteads is considered the most polluted bay on the lake.

I was out on crystal bay (off co. rd 51) before the cold snap. There were a ton of nice pan fish but you had to work hard to get em.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.
