10" Sunfish Lakes


iFishMN.YT

Recommended Posts

Just got done looing at the huge sunfish pictures under the sunfish/crappie forum...Very nice fish and I dont think I have caught one over 10" before. Just wondering if anyone is willing to share a lake or 2 that hold that size fish. I have come close on Lake Sarah a couple times but dont think they were that big. Anyone else catch any giany gills on sarah? Dont mean to preach but if we all practice a little bit of selective harvest, there may be more out there. Personally I dont keep fish except maybe once or twice every 5 years. Kinda off the subject of this post but I think there are too many people out there who keep limits of fish day after day and there freezers are full of fish. Just a friendly reminder, because I feel alot of people dont realize, a possesion limit includes the fish you got in the freezer smile.gif

Whe I used to live in Tennessee we had 10 inch sunfish in every lake. One of the few things I miss about living down there.

If you were to post any lake with quality panfish on this forum.. especially around the metro.. them fish will be pounded and soon be gone.

I dont expect anyone to let out their secret honey hole.. and I dont blame them.

Its not the forum users here so much, but its combined with the lurkers. A spot is posted and if a couple people get out and find quality fish, the word spreads fast.. and lots of fish go home.

This is a great place to share information.. but its not a wise place to share a honey hole.

Why not my cousin catchs big gills on Mille Lacs he fishs for gills and crappies while every one is out jerkin perch and hunting walleyes. His biggest is just under 12ins and 1 pound 13 oz he has it mounted.

      We got .5” last night. Hasn’t affected the lake level yet. It’s been steady the past three days here (Frazer Bay). RLG

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?

      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
