SCSU student looking for a panfish lake


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm a freshman at St.Cloud State and love to fish, but not really familiar with any lakes in the area. Just wondering if anyone could point me to any good panfish lakes in the area. Thanks for the help!

I've had good luck with all 3 of the Spunk lakes in Avon during the summer, but this is my first winter in this area and I don't know how good they are under the ice.

Some possible options for panfish in the area are pearl,grand,some parts of the chain. Briggs lake and Julia used to be pretty good lakes but with lasts years die off, I'm not quite sure what is left in those two lakes. Otherwise, this year so far though, ive been graphing them on the vexilar, but they just are not interested, but you never know when they might start becoming more aggresive.

Good Luck

The spunk lakes in Avon can be very good at times. Lower tends to hold the smaller of the fish. Look to upper for crappie action the population there has sharply declined so it's a little work finding them.

Pleasant Lake is also really close, some friends have been catching sunnies and bluegills out there.

My grandson was on a school field trip and they fished Julia last week. He has fished the lake with us in the past and had a pretty good idea of what was going on. They caught lots of pannies, nothing real big. Great time for the kids, hats off to the teachers and parents who put this together. Bill

Was out on Goodners yesterday. Caught a lot of sunfish but had to weed through the small ones to find a keeper.

      @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....
