It’s Panfish Time

20120525 214223 Its Panfish Time

Well turkey season is almost over here in Michigan but lucky for us there are lots of opportunities to chase other game.

The Bluegills are getting hot and heavy on their spawning beds right now which makes for some prime time fishing.

Of course my favorite part about panfish is not how much fun they are to catch but just how tasty they are.

Head to your local lake and hit the shallows over the next few weeks for some non stop panfish action!

Tight lines,

Well everyone is hitting the rivers here in Michigan pulling out steelhead. Always a great sign of spring when the bugs are hatching off the river.
