Hello All,

Was thinking of taking my son to this lake to try and let him pull on some pan fish for a few hours this thursday. We are in town for a local hockey tournament and i wanted to take him fishing on thursday before our games start on friday...


I know weather is going to be less than ideal that day, any recommendations for trout or panfish from the locals would be appreaciated.


Thanks guys...


Luke

Water temps on Friday were right at 40 degrees. We soaked suckers and did some casting to stay warm. Had one take a sucker but she didn't stick on for long. We got to see her though, upper 30's. Not too many guys our there, so it was nice to have some elbow room on my spots. Good luck out there.

I don't, but she must be dropping fast.  There was skim ice in Smokeys Launch this morning.  Not enough to keep you from getting out, but the east end is going to ice up most nights now.

I'm always up for getting out, if my job allows.  Unfortunately due to a surgery I had this summer and work being crazy, I haven't been out a lot.  But when I've been out, we've boated some fish.  Not a great year, but also not a bad year.  It is crazy to me how that lake changes some every single year.

Spot on Vegas... Sounds like you could educate me on some of those techniques... I have taken some and seen some big fish out of this lake... We should try to get out and compare notes...

I heard there were 17 boats.  Winners tripled.  Looked like an ideal day to be out there.

Rule of thumb...if there's not much chatter on here, fishing is probably pretty good!  Get out and fish.  Literally there is a musky every 100 feet or so in every weedbed in that lake.  You just have to put in your time and have confidence in your presentation, whatever that may be.

If you are out and getting skunked, it isn't that they aren't there.  It is that they are being lazy and you should try a different technique that could get them going.  Remember those fish see an obscene amount of baits.  You gotta be a little different.

I had two buddies fishing separate boats. I believe the winner got 3 fish. Small fish was low 30s and 2 in the 40s. One buddies boat missed 3. The other got a 40 something.
