Ok, so you thought I was going to tell you about some, now is there any panfish biting in southern MN? What about bass or walleyes? Looking to go out someplace tonight or tomorrow, looking for ideas.

river rat, crappies and sunnies on madison.....HUge ones. Lots fo them on big jeff too. u might have to weed out more but the ones u can get will be worth it. Look to bell bar and the flats on the north and west ends of big jeff. lots of bullheads too but a jig and a crappie minnnow would be ur best bet. walleyes might be found here too if ur lucky.

Sunnies. I'm sure you could catch a pile of em on German, just don't know how good the size will be. Can probably sort through to get a meal. I've heard some decent off of Washington too.

I've had luck with big sunfish on both Washington and Madison this year. Washington I was using waxies and Madison leaches.

I have had very good luck with pannies and crappies with a jig and a piece of crawler.Most of the nicer sunfish and crappies ive caught in 10-14 fow and later morning,just a little deeper.I have had no luck with the eyes on Washington this summer,they have me stumped.Try Bakers bay,the southeast shore by the narrows and grassy island and maybe third point to the grassy island.You should mark some fish in one of those spots.GOOD LUCK

Been doing real well on the Bell Bar for nice crappies. 24 fow or so. They are suspended 10 - 18 or so. Have to be moving with a jig head and minnow. Best bite has been 9AM till noon. Few bullies in there too though.

Sunnies on Madison have been running 9-10 inches and 12oz to 15oz. Big fish. They have been picky on bait though. One day it will be leeches, the next will be crawlers or waxies. Lately its been waxies mostly. Check the bay between Church bar and Point Pleasant in 6-8 fow. There are a lot of fish over by Grassy at the same depth. Good luck.

Big Ds, is the panfish bite more of an evening bite for the crappies and sunfish? Or are they biting all day? Usually, my best bite has been in the evening out there for the slabbers. Thanks for the reports all!

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
    • Wheres_Walter
      We were up this past weekend.  We got cold but did ok.  We caught around 40 walleye.  Most were 12-14" a handful of 14-16".  Good activity and a full fry pan, but no bigger fish.  Frazer and Smarts bays.  All Jig and minnow.  Mornings we found them at 24-26 FOW.  Evenings in 7-10 FOW.  Water temp was 50-52.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.
