Pan fishing good; try the Mississippi for lots of big walleyes
What an unbelievable start to our spring -- the warmest I can remember. Water temps on our area lakes are already around 60 degrees. We were into the first week of June last year before water temps got that warm.
Area fishermen are having success with pan fish. Sunfish are active in very shallow water. You can actually site fish for them right now. They are taking small leeches, pieces of night crawler, or crappie minnows on small bright jigs or hook under a bobber.
