Fishing in Land O' Lakes!

Panfish Season in Full Swing

March 18, 2018 ·

The warmer temps this past weekend was a pleasant change, but they also make travel on the lakes more uncertain and difficult.  Additionally, this week is predicted to have above freezing and sunshine during the day and below freezing at night.  Make sure to check your path of travel and remember the conditions can change rapidly, so plan appropriately to stay safe.  Some of the best Panfish action happens during this time of year.

Lake trails most likely will be closed/unmarked as the snowmobile season comes to an end.  So, make sure to easily make your gear location identifiable to avoid problems.  Location and situation awareness becomes a key part to fishing during this time of the season.

Panfish: Bluegills are being found in the shallow green weeds using small jigs tipped with waxies, spikes or tipped with plastic.  Perch are being caught on the deeper green weed edge. Crappies are still suspended over deep water. 

Permanent ice shacks are to be off the water, as the deadline in Wisconsin for removal was by March 18th.  Keep in mind that the annual WI fishing licenses will be expiring on March 31st.

Happy fishing!  Selective harvest is the way to go.  Colin Crawford's Guide Service, (715)891-2715.  Website is or you can also find Phelps Outdoors on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. NPAA #94.
