If you're going to fish for pannies, fish very early morning hours or late afternoon into the evening. Water is super clear there & the pannies don't hit good during the daylight hours. I have had good luck out from the dam in about 15 ft of water.

I really think the hunt of finding the fish for yourself is just so much more rewarding. If it was a matter of sustaining your family i could certainly understand tho!!! tight lines.

IF275, 
Open your mouth wide and say "ahhh" you just been spoonfed. 
Whatever happened to doing your homework and figuring things out for yourself?

I almost choked on my tea................... .............thats funny :clap:

I love that lake, and hate it at the same time. About five years ago, I had one really good day - caught about 100 gills and perch - that was my one day................... ..Love it, but the truth is that most leave disapointed with the quality of the fishing. But in mid march on a warm sunny day when the swans are heading north, it dosn't get much better.

Good luck, move a bunch.
80% of Americans are unhappy with the direction our once great Country is heading. Yet 80% of Americans insist on buying blue jeans that were made in China, coffee filters that were made in Taiwan and anything else that was made anywhere but here........wonder if there might be a connection?

I guess no one remembers the days before the internet....when it was "crowded" if there was 10-15 guys on the lake on a weekend and when quality perch were abundant.  Now I go there and see 15-20+ guys middle of the week, dink perch left to die on the ice after their eyes have been poked out to tip jigs, ect ect and the fishing isn't what it used to be IMHO.  :-\ :-\   Guess I'm just nuts for thinking spoonfeeding over the internet may have played a role in that  ::) ::)

Yep.

Jean gets hit hard sometimes on a daily basis by the same guys. Keep hammering the lake and removing fish you end up with dinks and spooky fish.

Living close to the lake, I fish it a lot. It is no secret that this lake freezes first and gets its share of anglers. However, when I fish during the week, I will most often have the place to myself until about noon.
