Going to be on nokomis this weekend. First time here are there any fish in the back bays still. Looking to catch panfish and maybe a bonus walleye
I am looking for a reliable fishing guide to take me out on Nokomis for a day . My goal is to Learn the lake, not to take a pile of fish home.
I want to learn how to fish this body of water with its ever changing water fluctuations
Catch and release is absolutely fine
The water level is pretty high so the lake is basically safe. Stay out in the middle. Rock piles and shallow areas are marked.
For panfish I would hang around the bridge near the ice cream place (Windmill), or just look for green weeds extending out from shore and throw nightcrawlers in tight.
Definitely take the kids to the Windmill, but remember, one scoop is like a quart of ice cream.
I am coming up this weekend with my two kids 6 and 2 both girls. If you have any general information on panfish that would be great - all will be released.
Also are there any hazards I should be aware of - rocks, stump fiels etc?
Thanks in advance!
Hello all! I'm taking my family to beautiful Nokomis for our first family vacation with the 4 year old! Hoping to make it an experience they'll want to repeat! We will be staying on the Far East end of the lake. If anybody would be so kind as to throw me a few pointers on how/where to fish for Smallmouth, Walleyes, or pan fish, it would be seriously appreciated! The little one loves to catch fish, and I'd like to keep her on a path of good fishing experiences to nurture her love for fishing!! Want to make a lifetime fisherman out of her, and j know I can't do that without some help from people with experience. I believe my messenger is on, so again, any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!! Good fishing to you all!!
