Dropshot Panfish
Dropshot Panfish
By Ted Pilgrim
Posted February 23, 2015
The Best Rig You've Never Fished? Written in conjnction with Brian "Bro" Brosdahl Amazing that such a versatile rig- this prefect presenter of soft plastics and livebait- would be so little employed by panfish fans. In reality, a dropshot rig can be as productive as a bobber and bait, or even a tiny jig. It's even possible that the dropshot is the most versatile rig of all, providing instant depth control; fishes heavy without impairing or impeding the presentation; shines in shallow and deep water; and activates softbaits like no other presentation. Despite the rig's "advanced" connot...

North Country Walleyes, 'Meat' The Precision Jig
By JP Bushey
Posted February 18, 2015
In two-line situations throughout North-Central Ontario - and much of the continental Ice Belt for that matter -- not much beats a jig and minnow combination for scraping extra walleye off the spots you jig. Spoons, rattle baits and other lures bring fish under you, and a lively dace, chub or golden... read more

Catching Suspended Basin Fish
By Scott Stankowski
Posted February 12, 2015
When it comes to fishing in a large basin like many of our flowages and reservoirs, electronics are a must. I spend a great deal of my time out on ole Lake Winnebago and she behaves in much the same way. I consider myself an above average fisherman in the open water on these bodies of water and ca... read more

Winter Perchin'
By Kevin Fassbind
Posted February 9, 2015
Perch are unquestionably one of the most sought after panfish during the hardwater season. It would seem they have the perfect combination of scrappiness and delicious to put them near the top of any panfisherman's list. The habitat is vast in the northern tier of states. Farm ponds in the Dakotas, ... read more

'Bama Bass Exciting Winter Option
By Ted Peck
Posted February 9, 2015
Every man has limitations which can not be exceeded without suffering profound mental distress. My personal panic stage for not seeing bare ground and open water is about six weeks. January in November had most voices in my head screaming "drive south". These voices grew louder as the whispers t... read more
"Bimbo Gifford" Is Livin' The Dream
By Ted Peck
Posted January 19, 2015
Times were tight for Dan "Bimbo" Gifford back in the summer of 2012. This longtime union carpenter and laborer was looking forward to retirement after a 30 year career. He had just 72 hours to work before qualifying for a full pension. Dreams shattered in an instant when Gifford severed his Ach... read more

Weeds for Panfish and Pike
By Dave Lorier
Posted January 9, 2015
Fifteen years ago I was living the ice fishing dream, spoiled by limits of big panfish nearly every outing on the lakes around Madison, Wisconsin. I was very fortunate to have become friends with Kevin Fassbind who taught me the ins and outs of ice angling for panfish on the Madison Chain. The rea... read more
It's All About Efficiency
It's All About Efficiency
By Jerry Carlson
Posted January 1, 2015
The deep water basin that typically holds winter crappies was void of activity. There was not one single house in the area and very few old holes. As my fishing partner, Charlie Simkins, and I walked through the region taking readings through the ice with our Vexilars, it became evident why this ... read more
