I haven't been to these lakes this year yet and would like to take my nephew out for some panfish and northerns. Wondering if these lakes would be a good option or any other lakes come to mind. Thanks in advance!!

Was on Grand all day 01/17 picked up a few tiny pike and a ton of very small sunnies, 1 real nice crappie. 100% catch and release day.

No real luck last night, got stripped by a northern. About 12 cars on the ice probably 14 inches, safe.

Was on Pearl yesterday afternoon had a decent northern get off at the hole... 30 inches maybe... and also a few average sunnies and a couple crappies. Saw a lot more on the vex than actually bit, changed jigs quite a bit just couldn't figure out what was wrong.

Thanks for the reports. If you don't mind me asking, what depth were the panfish in? The last time I fished on Pearl I went out from the public access and way to the right. Is that a good spot to start? Thanks.

I focused on the 10-15 foot breaks... most of the time with better luck near the bottom.

Fever

Hit pearl Sat. Went out from the acess straight south about 700 yards to a good break from 8 down to 14. Caught 3 average 2-3lb pike on a tip up using med sucker chubs. Got bit off 3 times, two times on the hook set with the tip up and once while jigging a sweedish pimple and minnow head. Alot of pike action to be had. Also got into a bunch of smaller sunnies using wax worms. Alot of people out there most driving. There was about 13-14 inches of ice. Find live (green)weeds and you'll be into the fish. good luck. (((TIP UP)))...

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      pikeandchester, your kid is priceless!   You know that you wouldn't be going by your self much anymore-Right! 😅

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
