Perch & Panfish
Perch and crappies provide non-stop early season action and are great on the table! Everyone enjoys these trips and your kids will be grinning from ear to ear. Panfishing trips are a GREAT way to start the summer fishing season off!! April and May are the best months for catching panfish. However, they can be caught all season long!
Crappies move shallow shortly after ice-out. Usually in late April and stay through May. Huge schools congregate, making fishing fast and furious. Small minnows and artificial baits both work. Later in the year, the schools of crappies move into deeper water. Jigs and minnows work the best to catch them at this time of year.
Rates are for a full-day trip per party/group. Includes approximately 8 hours of fishing time.
