Recommended Posts

Rick

Matt Johnson will be giving a seminar at the Gander Mountain in Mankato, MN at 7pm on Thursday, January 20.

Matt's topic will be Subtle Approaches When Panfish Turn Finicky - Location and Presentation.

He will cover some of the finesse aspects of fishing for panfish during the winter. Learn about different techniques and strategies for catching more panfish through the ice.

Everything from where to find fish all the way to triggering the finicky ones to stop sniffing and strike your presentation.

Matt will also be free to answer questions and talk with people after the seminar as well as show you some of the tools he uses and how he uses them to trigger more panfish when ice fishing.

Mark January 20th on your calendar to visit Gander Mountain in Mankato, MN.

I also went last night. Got there a little bit late, but it was certainly well worth the time spent. I took several things from the presentation that hopefully will help produce more success on the lake fishing panfish.

You gotta love Matt's enthusiasm. The presentation was very professional and of great quality. Tom simply brings years of putting his time in, and that is invaluable. I think we can all relate to Matt's need to buy fishing jigs. Needless to say, I left $40 at Gander last night on "stuff I dont need". What else is new? That place consistantly takes its toll on my savings account balance!

Thanks go out to the FM Board for getting the message out on here, I would have never known. Great job Matt and Tom and thanks! Now when can you do a more hands on seminar out on the lake?? LOL

It is probably a good idea to post all of Gander's "seminars" on the websight. At least Mankato's please? Any Gander Employees interested in helping out sales?

So now its out to the lake tonight with some new ideas! Thanks again, Jamie

Jamie,

Tim Cain and myself will be doing several instore seminars. We problably won't do any till soft water fishing rolls around. We talked last night about doing some trolling techniques with planer boards, lead core, making jigs, tying spinners, rigging and so on. When I have done presentations in the past I like to use multi media, (ie. videos I make, slide shows, ect..) I know that they will be posted on ganders website, if Rick doesn't have a problem with it I'll make sure to keep you informed aswell.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
