Was there on Sat, lots of houses, permanent and portable packed together near the channel and off a weed point. Caught 1 crappie of average size. I think similar results for most as sunday there wasn't 1/3 the number of portables and a lot of the permanents were empty. Not sure if weather played a role or what. Not sure what is a hot pannie lake right now

We have had a cabin on the upper lake since 1979, the last 10 years we have done good on the eye's early ice until Jan., then they stop. This year I got my house out the first weekend in Dec. that hasn't happened in years. between me, my dad and a few friends we caught 30 this winter. As years past they have now shut down and I will go in search of the panfish now. I tend to do pretty good on the crappie after dark off the piont from hoot owl bay. The lower lake is very good for sunnies, you don't need to look very hard to find a active school and just like most lakes just before ice out you can get some real slabs. The guy is 100% right, don't follow the crowd of houses on that lake. I honestly think their are a few old timers that fish this lake every year and once they put their house out, the rest of the mob looks for that one guy's house and that is where the village sets up. In the past 10 years I have seen that village move around the whole lake and I have never done real well fishing in it.

Deerwoody, have you ever fished the lake in the winter?

There is always 1 big cluster of houses and then a dozen others scattered threw out the lake. The big mob is mostly a bunch of friends that fish together and of coase then you have a few other houses that set up shop there because they see a bunch of houses in that one spot and figure the fish MUST be hitting there. I guess what I mean is that on other lakes maybe the mob is getting good fishing and that is the place to be, but on Mission you have about 6 different spots other than the mob to fish at and I my self have caught bigger and more numbers than the people in the mob.

So yes, the mob is not ALWAYS the place people are catching fish, sometimes it is just a group of followers out drounding a bunch of minnows.

I have a friend who lives on the lake and I fish it often with him,he is also a local guide.What I am saying is the more pressure the smaller the fish,maybe not always but it is a good general rule especialy in the winter.I think Trav did better than others for a reason on Bay.

Have a black flip over and polaris (ranger 6x6 or 600 touring sled). stop by sometime I'd like to know where the other 6 places are!!!! grin.gif Met a younger (than me) guy a couple weeks ago (Erik) you he? I think Deerwoody's buddy is uspet because the village is right off his parents place. (guide with parents on the lake can only be one guy I know of).

No, it was not me. If I see ya the next time I'm out I will stop and say hi.

Do you fish sunnies or crappie on the lower lake?

The last few winters I haven't been able to find a very active school of crappie on lower.

I think the old timers should set up decoy shacks over non-productive spots and then use portables and fish their normal spots while laughing at everyone setting up a village in no-mans land. grin.gifgrin.gif

I'll be up the W.E. of the 10th-11th. Usually fish upper in the AM alone, my wife sleeps in. I've not had much luck with pannies on lower. I guess they got hammered a few years ago and have yet to recover. I like to pike fish with tip-ups on lower. I do have some info on lower that might help. David

That's funny and it would work. I can't believe all the lakes around here that have one group of houses setup within feet of each other and then the rest of the lake is wide open. I love this mentality. Go ahead and pack up cuz I'm on the move. tongue.gif

Hey Gator Slayer I live on lower. The reason for the panfish shortage is there was a big die off this summer. I saw probly 600 to 700 around our dock alone. As for crappies we have only caught 3 through the ice in ten years. Summer is alot diffrent.

three in ten years?come on now,catching crappies is like shooting ring bills LOL.What part of the lake do you live on? There are still plenty of crappies in there,or you wouldnt be able to catch them in "the spot" in the spring like you do.ya just have work for them till ya get into a school that the village hasnt found yet.

He came over a talked to me a couple times, I think is "grandpa" has a place on the eastern side of upper, He was pointing but I didn't have my glasses on. smirk.gif He's not a real big guy, but helped me out.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.
