Anyone have any good spots to get some crappies/sunnies. I'm taking the little one on Sunday and I heard pancake island is good. Is it a long walk? What would be the best way to get there? I'm dragging a portable, no 4 wheeler or sled. An other easy to get to locations would be appreciated.

If you are looking to bring a little one out i would try chisago. the south bay along highway 83 is loaded with panfish. I believe it would be a lot of fun for you and the kid/kids. Maybe even some action on a tipup if you tried it.

I'd have to second the south end of Chisago. You may want to get there early because parking can be an issue on the weekends. Plenty of action for the little one and don't be afraid to put a little distance between you and the shore.

Good Luck

The south end of Chisago is posted no lake access dont know why everyone still parks there I wonder if it is enforced I know I've seen the Sheriff there.

If you are set on the pancake island you can get pretty close going this way. Take a right at the Dairy Queen of of hiway 8. Go about a mile and turn left at Glader. Go to the T in the road and turn left. Go to the end of the road and park on the lake along the shore. From there its a short walk to the island.

Have fun

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
