Finessing Crappies and Bluegills Through the Ice
Panfish are simple creatures. They eat, sleep and spawn to survive. In between these activities they look for better places to eat, sleep, and spawn; like I said panfish are simple creatures! Ice fisherman are simple creatures too, but times are changing and we’re getting more sophisticated and knowledgeable every day.Spend some time in the backwaters of the Mississippi or Wisconsin River and you’ll learn a lot.
