Nice catch Crappie Killer. I glad my tips helped put you on some fish. I sure wish we could have gotten more pan fish last week.

34 and 36" Northerns back to back this afternoon on Prairie. Trolling flicker shads in 10-12' of water. Panfishing has been pretty good also. Catching blue gill and crappies in 14-16' of water drifting.

Partly Sunny

Just returned from another good week in the chain. Pan fishing was a little tough as the wind blew pretty strong from the 18th thru the 20th. Found gills on some of the beds on Prairie and crappie just outside of the weedlines. Crappie were also on the wood in Pokegama. Only went out for game fish on Thursday evening. Bass were feeding well and we were able to land 5 Bass and 2 Eyes. All were released back to fight again. Game fish all were caught on a Jointed Rapala (firetiger) and pan fish on 1/64oz. jigs tipped with waxies or Berkley Gulp 1in. minnows.

fished Prairie lake with the legendary Bimbo Gifford. Caught a mixed bag of gills/perch/crappie relating to stumps in 7-10 fow. Caught fish by drifting slow and anchoring up and casting Bimbo Skunks tipped with waxies and Berkley Gulp leeches.  Tremendous bloom on the water now.

Well basshoggin I am very honest in my posts.  Both of these fish were released and swam away. They were caught only a few hundred yards from where the pictures were taken. Yes I do have a livewell, as far as taking the one in to be weighed I put in a big cooler full of water, rushed to the store, and quickly returned it to the lake. I worked with the fish for several minutes to be sure it was able to survive. Maybe it's hard for you to understand this but it is the God's honest truth. Here is the fish just before it gave a flip of the tail and swam away.

I doubt they were released to fight again....caught trolling, pictures from the pier, and biggest registered at rod n gun club.lol. Let's be honest, they went straight to the dinner table.

Another person asking where your honey hole is, and exactly what you're catching them on.  Might as well just wait for you to catch and clean them and then go take them out of your freezer.
