Looking for a lake to take kids for some panfish. Anything else is a bonus, but the kids are coming from North Carolina, so I need find some action for them. Anyone fished Sand for panfish? They would be coming in July. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

do yourself a favor and hire a local area guide, for your best chance to get those kids on fish.

you can poke in the dark like most of us do, but living up here we get plenty of chances.

I'm sure there is a listing for the guides on here some where.

Thanks Jake, I appreciate your vote of confidence for both the lake and for our resort. As Jake said the action on Sand Lake is wonderful with many differenct species of fish. If you are looking for action for kids, pike are always biting. We do have a 22" to 36" slot on pike but you can keep 9 instead of the state limit of 3. The perch and panfish are also usually active to keep your reels warm. I also agree that it wold be a good move to hire a guide. These guys do some amazing things even when the bite is slow. A day on the water with these guys definately enhances the rest of your vacation and dramatically improves your opportunities to catch quality fish. I personnally recommend Jason Boser and the other Pro Guides at MN Fishing Pros. You can find them by going to my site where they will talk about fishing Sand Lake as well as fishing the area as a whole. There is also a link to their site from mine. Wherever you end up, have a great vacation!

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      Rig up a motion sensor with a horn or alarm of some kind.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!
