Fished Saturday from 6am till 10:30am we started in 7ft casting in with a bobber and wax worm we moved till we found and moved when they stopped and lets say sometimes it was 5 or 6 and other times only 1 or 2 and you never knew what it was going to be a 13 inch crappie or a 4 inch bluegill maybe a 5 inch crappie or a 9 inch gill hopefully not a pike. By the time we finished the bite was slowing. Fished sunday 6am till 10 with the same results as sat. but we did catch gills by the docks before we came in. Was back at 2pm till 6pm it was a father son team and we had to move a lot but we did find some very nice crappie and gills for a great meal. When the wind started out of north our bite slowed and we called it a day. Thanks guys for the time spent in the boat and boy do I love catching big gills. No minnows just wax worms and purple rat finkee

Many people use Beetle Spinners for pan fish.

Hit the lake for first time this afternoon. Fishing was slow for me caught 10 gills between 8 and 9 inches and a bunch of dinks. Saw 2 different boats throwing spinner baits and crank baits when will people read the regs. Saw some decent crappie caught in the big groups of boats but most were on smaller side
