Fish: Black Crappie

Lake Pend Oreille - Panfish

Post By: chodeman      Posted: 5/10/2021 3:00:23 PM     Points: 3796    
Just got back from Lake Pend Oreille in Idaho. The Trout and Walleye fishing was tough, but the panfishing was awesome, here is the cooler shot from a 3 hour stint one evening. 41 perch (10"-12"), 14 Crappie (11"-14" slabs) and a few 9" Pumkinseeds.

If you ever get a chance to go up there, I highly recommend trying for all species. A 53 mile lake with some of the most beautiful shoreline you will ever see.

My brother and I caught over 400 perch, 100 Crappies, plenty of Bass and Sunfish with just a few Trout, Walleyes and Pike.

Thanks chodeman. I'll have to remember that one. That bucket of perch and crappie would be a dream vacation for me. Pretty awesome scenery just getting there too.
