Have a great week!!
There are good panfish, both above and below Pillager dam.
in Lake Placid, As the water warms, look for the milfoil beds on the north side of the river to establish itself. If the edges as well as the deeper water adjacent to the weeds. I like to fan cast a split shot rig vs. a bobber set up.
Below the dam, in summer panfish can be caught directly below the dam as well as near Cty 1 Bridge and along most of the inside turns of the river east of there.
There are some nice sized panfish in the system, please let the bigger ones back.
Anyone ever fish this lake before? Looks like it could be a good early season lake. Where exactly is the access? Is it a marked road? Pay box or do I have to go to the house and bother the guy? Appears the river might be too high to fish next weekend, so it’d be nice to find a little solitude on a nearby lake over the holiday weekend.
Believe it or not it's a 1993 1660 ProV with a 2 stroke Pro 60 Yamaha. Still runs like a champ. I'm starting to get to the age that it doesn't pay to get a new one. It's always stored in the garage unless we're on a trip.
Must have been a tough day of fishing with a couple hundred good fishermen catching only an handful of fish over 5#.
I'm puzzled by the fish weighing 5.15# and and 5.81#. Seems too heavy for a 20" fish and too light for a 26" fish. The chart I use suggests a 20" walleye weighs 3.12# and a 26" walleye weighs 7.18#. Of course there is huge variation around this prediction chart. Wonder if these were these long skinny fish or short chunky fish?
Thanks for posting the results bb and congrats on 10th place.
