How is this lake for pan fish through the ice? Any suggestions on where to go?
Lake Tom is completely frozen over now... I have a friend who lives on the main shoreline. On FB, he showed a picture 30 yards offshore that had 4", but I would say it is a spud bar search if you are going to try it for sure!!!
I haven't been by the Lake Tom bay to see if anyone is sneaking out there at all either...
Good Luck, Be Safe if you go!!! Remember to spud everywhere you go right now!!!
We are staying on Lake Minocqua with the family next week, I am wondering if you can make it from Minocqua to Tomahawk without problem in the channel? Also, how has muskie fishing been on Tomahawk? Any info would be appreciated!
Looking for panfish on the Minocqua Chain? My best advice, fish early particularly on overcast days. Minnows under a slip bobber work well for perch and crappie if you can find them. Small jigs with tubes will also work for just about all species of panfish. Bluegill best caught on crawlers, worms, even leeches. Tubes jigs also work well especially tipped with a piece of crawler. Look for weed edges in 8 t0 12 feet of water. Fish near bottom for perch especially. Crappie will probably be suspended and might be found above deeper weeds. Lots of panfish in the Chain, but size can be an issue.
