fish hawk kris

Has anyone gotten into the panfish, and how?

I got out over new years, and caught some panfish jigging W.W. & E.L. in 20ft on the north lake. But just as a snow front came in. Always the case on that lake, you'd better be quick!

A couple of folks checking in on me hadn't any luck, just perch.

This lake has a combination that can be unlocked, I know receives relatively minimum pressure for lake of it's size for those of you FM'rs, Let's keep eachother posted and break this safe.

See ya on the ice.

Het fish hawk i fish the Pine lakes often and have only done real well on pan fish in the summer. This summer i had excellent luck with crappies and bluegills. One day last summer i caught about 15 crappies all over 9 with acouple to 11. it was an awsome day on big pine. By the way every crappie i caught that day went back. I continued to fish that spot for most the summer with good results. But as your post states i have been out 3 times this winter with very poor results i to often get frustrated with the panfish bite on the pine lakes. i would love some tips if there any people that would share some info. I know there out there quality sizes to. well i am going to give it another shot this week end but it's supposed to be -15as the high so i don't know how much moving i'll be doing. well good luck and any tips to unlock those Pine Lakes panfish would be great.

I have a friend who last year bought land up there, right by the north landing, and I know for a fact that the fishing can be tough on this lake. we spent two days this summer with nothing but bottle bass to show for our efforts.

He claims he has caught fish up there, but of course no one has witnessed it either. I would assume that the winter fishing would be better on that lake since there were so many summer pleasure boaters out there the two days we were out there.

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)
