Has anybody been out on Ann fishing for panfish? I've had the best luck near the inflowing river on the west side in the spring or at the mouth of the out flowing river to the north later on. I've also had good luck fishing for northerns in the out flowing river in the spring but they run a little small 1-5 lbs. Does anybody still have luck with walleyes here or does the combo of Regs and Indian usage keep people from using this lake? Any response would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jim

Ice Hole

I haven't fished it yet this year, but last year I did awesome in that little bay that the road seperates from the lake. (Southwest end I think?) You need a small boat/canoe to get back there, but its worth it. Many sunnies over 8" and crappies over 11". The walleyes are supposed to be good on Anne, but I haven't fished for them.

Ice Hole,
I know the place your talking about but have never fished in there. I always thought it was too shallow and swampy. How deep is the water in there, and what were ya usin?

Thanks,
Jim

Ice Hole

It gets to about 4-5 or so feet in the middle...fish around the vegation on the north side and middle of the swamp by the lilly pad roots and stumps ...its deeper there. I was usin a bobber and worms...the water is stained like coffee, so I would be willing to bet white twister tails would get em good too. I tried minnows and ended up with nice crappies and some larger sunnies. If you go back there let me know how ya do and what the water lvl is like. wink.gif [email protected] ...I have a cabin 5 minutes from that spot if you want to hit it up sometime.

      Thanks @knoppers.   I’m about to head over to that general area.  Makes me wonder if I should load the wheeler.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.
