Walleyes, perch and crappie. Sometimes panfish.

Heading to Spirit in the morning.

Depends on whatís biting. If spirit has a decent perch bite Iíll go for them otherwise go for blue gills, crappie and yellow bass. Caught a few walleye but never specifically targeted them.

Depends what is biting. I always enjoy Spirit and going for Perch but tend to overall be more successful fishing panfish (bluegill crappie yellows) on East, West or Miniwacrapa. Will often do a morning on one lake and then an afternoon on a different lake.
