Ice Fishing Panfish on Small Lakes and Ponds

Crappie and bluegill location in small lakes and ponds is a lot easier than in sprawling bodies of water, but can still present a challenge. Expert ice angler Sam Moore shares his strategy for quickly locating the biggest crappie and bluegill in the system through a simple study of the shoreline and fish finder. Catching then becomes the challenge; small tungsten ice jigs tipped with ultra-realistic plastics have become the weapon of choice for discerning anglers. It’s a vertical fishing cat and mouse game for those with patience and a love for panfish.
