There are a lot of great angling opportunities going on right now but you might not want to overlook panfish. It’s sunfish we’re talking about, and it’s prime time for finding and catching the largest of this species.
The early ice-out moved the calendar up by a month or more and has given anglers a jump on shallow water panfish. Typically you have to wait until sometime in April to find open water and have a shot; but not this year. This year is different, although the fish are still acting the same.
