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)))...

      I fished with a guide on the Detroit River two weeks ago who had the new Panoptix unit ($4000 to get setup).  Incredible what you could see as it is a live image.  Have to say it can frustrate the hell out of you sometime,  you see the fish just looking at your bait and then swimming away.  Very cool tech!  You could actually see the fins on the fish in the image and truly judge the size somewhat.

      7-10 days the lake will be ice free. Which will be almost right on average ice out (April 30). Pike bay is open up to Duffy island working up the bay. Paddled from the Pike river up the bay to the ice line tonight.

      Fake chirp as marketing gimmick.    They need something to convince folks to buy their unit and dump their unit from two years ago.    I am reserving judgement on the new higher frequency units.  "mega" and equiv.   Side scan actually seems like it could be useful.  Lots of stuff is changing these days in electronics.       I think what would be cool is an underwater drone with several transducers that communicates back to the boat wirelessly with sonar and video.....    Fresh water doesn't block radio waves too much so probably could use radio communication at least for a limited distance.       Some sort of modulated acoustic waves would work too.       Can't you just see, sitting in the boat, driving the mini-sub around looking  for fish, with sonar to help?   I bet the open water musky guys would pay big bucks for one....😂

      Heading up to the river in the morning trying to decide if I should fish up the river or out if wheelers.

      Sure wish we would get a strong enough east wind to pile the ice on shore. Lot of ice out there and it will take a long time if it has to all melt.
