The panfish were active tuesday late afternoon. We kept 20 for the pan, 17 were gills.We caught them on gulp, plastic, and crawlers. It is nice to catch keepers instead of 7 7/8 gills even though we still caught alot that size. Have a safe holiday.

Fished the Big Lake on Saturday evening until dark.

Hoping to find big gills and sunnies. Got only 1 9inch sunny and 1 7 inch gill and 1 9 inch black crappie. about 2 hours of not much going on.

Then the sun set.

The fishing improved with the sunset. Over the next 1/2 hour I caught 4 bass, 10 inch, 13 inch, 2 15 inch. and 1 16 inch pike. Daughter caught 2 bass, a 10 inch and a 12 inch.

Saw at least 3 30 inch+ pike launch themselves straight up into the air. would have moved over to them but the bass were pretty entertaining.

Got out early sat morning with lite drizzle which stopped around 6am or so.

Got 3 bass, 2 decent and 11 pike with one decent one. and I saw a big bowfin in about 4 feet of water in a big open area, its entire body was in the weeds with just its head sticking out, I tried to back paddle to see if it would hit anything but it was gone.  Didn't look like it was spawning, I'm guessing they will be more active in June.

100% correct on bog movement !  I have personally moved MANY bogs used for duck blinds with my 16' boat years ago.

I launched at Buckhorn 6AM motored to the bay yesterday and left around noon.. there had been some channel movement.

However i will admit that the channels had in fact had moved and the last one going to the bay changed and made me confused for a bit.. the tight corner was now a large open area

Big M is always full of surprises...especially with high water and loose bogs.

At 9Am. Main channel had a giant bog blocking it,pushed thru small opening on North side! Saw boat take other small channel North of main,that one seemed ok!With strong east wind it might have pushed bog to west! I have seen bogs move pretty far in a short period of time with the water up! Fishedand hunted this lake for 40yrs.,pretty familiar with it!
