Nice fish, congrats!! Potato is one of my favorite local lakes. Always catch a ton of pannies and with sorting you get good ones, not to mention the walleye/pike/musky surprises that are pretty common! Very under rated lake.

CNJ85 -

You were correct. Was out on Potato last week....... Had to sort, but Panfish galore. Brought some home for eating. Caught these nice fish casting. 1 lost musky at boatside as well. Walleye was 23 inches....... Musky I estimate at 35/36 inches.

Thanks Much!

To answer your question. Yes the bite on Potato is still strong. Catching all the panfish you could ever want, with plenty big enough to keep after sorting, and two days ago caught this northern on a small panfish jig and crawler, got lucky it was hooked in the corner of the mouth. Step dad caught a nice 17 inch walleye right before this also on panfish jig and crawler.

I was out Saturday from 2pm until dark. Almost no action until about 5:00, then they lit up for about 45 minutes, and then somebody flipped a switch somewhere and they shut back down again. Ended up keeping about 20, mostly medium sized gills, and threw back about a dozen more.

Hammered the panfish yesterday afternoon and evening by the islands. Both crappies and gills, crappies ran small but did get an 11 incher. Gills were very nice but a lot of sorting

Caught 100+ crappies from 2:30 to 6 this evening out by the islands. Typical Potato crappies, nothing special in size but more than enough for a meal. 18 fow with a frostee tipped with a waxie.
