Largemouth and Panfish in the Shallows

June 1, 2013

We hit a local lake early this morning for some warmwater action. Started the morning trolling Lindy rigs for some walleye. No walleye, but we did nail some big sunfish on leeches. Surprisingly, these guys were holding in 20 feet of water!

After a few hours of walleye fishing without any luck, we moved in shallow to chase some bass. I pitched the llama hair jig to docks and caught a bunch of small bass. The panfish bite was pretty strong, with consistent action on tiny jigs or leeches. The water was crystal clear, making for some awesome sight fishing. My jig often wouldn’t make it to the bottom before a bass would dart out and grab it on the fall. Dad, Braden, and Noah each got some quality panfish on leeches.

The Bite:

Panfish are starting to move shallow. Fish can also be found in deeper water

The bass bite has remained hot in the shallows on the inside weedlines and on the docks

Water Temp 62 degrees F
