Took my 3 year old boy up to Fivemile and worked the outside of the pads
from the shoreline,using crappie nibbles(white) and a bobber. Panfish seem to
be huddled up pretty tight together. Our first cast yielded a small gill...by the end of the day
we had caught around 20 or so. All fish were released. Small hooks are key,we were using
a size 16. The bite was constant...perfect for keeping kids interested. I highly
encourage you folks that live nearby to check it out,the kids will have a blast.
The area fished was just a few feet from the swimming area. Just cast out a few feet
and if that bobber hasn't moved within 20 seconds,just cast a little further out/in.
They seemed to be moving up and down the outside edge of the pads.
Goodluck out there.
