Panfish Bite

Has anyone had good luck for sunnies or crappies lately. Don't need a lake or spot, was just wondering if you have got out lately. I am hoping on going out this friday after school.

Thanks for any help

I'm planning on May 5th and 6th being my first times on the water. Rumor has it they are starting to hit mid-day out on Little Rock (crappies) on the rock pile but that is just hearsay at this point. I'd imagine if the weekend is nice they should start turning on in the dark-bottomed bays.

Head out there and see what happens!

The sunfish are hitting in the shallows on Clearwater, they are running on the small side however.

Manwork, good to hear you are getting some fish to cooperate. My friends grandparents have a place on the lake and I have spent hundreds of hours shore fishing out there. From the dock we have caught tons of slab crappies, nice walleyes, perch, northerns, catfish, and other species. I might have to go up there and make sure they put the dock in correctly. grin.gif

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
    • Big Red Lodge
      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!
