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.

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)))...

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      This is great! I’ve never heard of this either Skunked, thanks for sharing- will give it a shot this summer!

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
