Prime time panfish

  • Updated

PANFISH FRENZY: Young angler, Lincoln Hoaglund, used a tungsten jig to catch this crappie earlier this winter.  As winter wanes, crappies and sunfish will get more aggressive and even easier to catch! 

There is a fishing pattern that emerges in March that is one of the most productive of the entire year and maybe one of the most overlooked too! The pattern involves bluegills and crappies at “last ice.” During this time, many of these fish are vacating deeper water mid-winter haunts and heading shallow preparing for their spring spawning rituals but also putting on the feed bag as well.
