I have an older friend that called and asked where the panfish are biting. I have been on the river and not the lakes as of late and could use some help.

Anyone have any ideas? If you dont want to post the lake, you may e-mail me at the address below in my signature.

Thanks Tom

From the reports I have heard, washington has been fairly good. Yesterday the bride and I went out for a few hours. I worked my better spots for 3 hours and caught a few but, boy was it slow. The ones I caught were nice but they were few and far between.

Just gives a person another reason to go again. smile.gif

The sunnies are on there nests. The best bite I've found is on German. The Cannon river in Waterville has a good bite but the fish seem small. If you know were there is some gravel in 1-4 feet of water there should be sunnies on it.

Easy. I know where you were ~10 - 12 days ago. Big lakes do not hold many cat fish. grin.gif

there has been a good bite down at the beaver (Contact Us Please) boat landing. my buddy and my brother went down there last nite for some panfish and ended up catching about 60 of them within 2 hours or so. they are all avg. sized ones but once in a while u get a decent one thats really worth it. they are pretty much hitting about any kind of bait but i think ur best bet is leeches or worms. u cant even keep ur bobber floating on the water. as soon as u cast be prepared for ur bobber to go under in 2 seconds! grin.gif

the sunnies here in albert lea went crazy the other day took home a limit casting all stright jigs i found that useing plastic lures brought in the bigger one, i kept every 8th fish and toss the others in between so they can recoup for their spawning run. now i have that limit now i'll be able to eat for 3 or more days w/o fishing for awhile.

      it actually was renamed from my understanding, but its easier for me to go with the old name.. i definitely would want to head out there. Thanks wanderer for the feedback. might've been the push i needed to go wet the lines next week.

      Getanet, Most folks the first week or so did very well on the west end this year. It is a huge area with a lot of structure options. There are weed beds, sand flats, rubble shorelines, and creek inlets, just to name a few.The 5-15ft depths brought a lot of fish too big to keep. The keepers were in the 15-25ft range.  Evening movements can bring all sizes of fish shallow. This year, minnows were definitely the bait of choice. It's all about location, location, location. In general the best approach is to run and gun. Stay no more than 10-15 minutes in a spot, and then move to then next.  If the fish are there, they  are generally active. Stick with, and sooner or later, you'll get rewarded.  VNP really is an amazing place.

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike
