Fished from 3-8pm out of my kayak. I managed only a single rock bass. Fished mostly swim jigs. I had several follows and one big bite, nice fish that I must have missed the hook set on. So, the catch was disappointing, but the night was gorgeous and not a total loss.

Fished Moose from 9-3 today. Had a little trouble figuring out the bass. Caught 2 in some shallow weeds but couldn't find any in deeper water. I was reminded today that I really suck at catching fish when they're not in shallow. Saw a bunch of fish follow my lures to the boat (LM, pike, gills) but did not take it. Got a bunch of bluegills (they were all over the place) with bigger ones in 6-10 fow. Kept 6 gills and a crappie for a meal.

4 inch Gulp crawlers on a jig was the best bait today (better than actual crawlers).

Great day to be on the water!

Fish at the end of the island just off the boat launch for panfish. Just need to weed through the small ones to get some keepers.

Hello, just looking for some advise.  I haven't fished this lake and was wondering if fishing near the island just off the launch is productive for pan fish?  I'm retired and my body doesn't seem to want to trek too far pulling my flip over now days : (   Any advise regarding where one fishes for pan fish on this lake would be appreciated.  I do have an ice fishing machine I can take out but as I don't know the ice on the lake I thought I'd best pull out first.  Thanks for your time.

Went out this morning for only a few hours. Popped the first hole in 12 FOW and as soon as I dropped my jig down blue gill were all around with in the first 20 minutes iced close to 15 gills then they moved on and ever once and a while I would mark a fish but couldn't get them to bite and the rest of the trip only had one other small pile that smoked my jig then decided to call it a day

Went out over the weekend and found some decent gills the bite slowed down at noon so I moved out deep and found some decent crappies.

Had a free day yesterday, so I took my oldest son out. He was adamant about wanting to fish for bluegills. I had heard a recent tip that there were still some gills up, so I headed to Moose.

Lake is slow no wake, but the information I was given was entirely accurate, and the location was dead on.

Lots of small, potato chip sized gills (as is always the case fishing shallow) but we figured out if you could make a presentation that landed in the water under the dock we were fishing by, you could find some larger (7-9") gills, pretty much on every cast that went under the dock.

Caught around 50 in about 2 hours with about 20 in the "larger" category. Nothing fancy to what we were doing...I used a Bimbo Skink (till a small pike bit it off) and then a Dick Smith's Panfish Grub, my son had a small red hook baited with waxworms. Used a small rocket bobber to help make the long, low trajectory cast you needed to hit the pocket under the dock.

Fished for bass on the way back to the boat launch. Just drifting with the wind and casting. He caught two largemouths 12 and 15" and a pair of snake pikes on a pre-rigged worm. I caught a couple of LM including an 18" on the ride back.

Pulled for lunch after about 3 hours on the water. Nice day with the kid. Looking forward to getting out with him and my oldest daughter next week.

Cheers,

CT
