I got out for a little Panfish outing in the metro area Sunday afternoon. Bob wanted to try tubing for the first time so he stopped by and we loaded up the tubes in his pickup and we headed for a small lake loaded with hungry panfish.
They were not hard to find, Bob took to my tube like a duck to water. He was rearing on fish before i even had my waders on! We caught around 100 crappies and bluegills in 3 hours of fishing. They were very hungry, even hitting Bob's float on the surface!
I brought my sonar out in case they were deep, I didn't need it though. there was a bug hatch and the warm weather had the fish feeding in the shallows. They bit good, I got some on t.h.e. Jig, and on a 1/32 ounce crappie tom jig with a black and yellow stub grub. Bob got his on some jigs he made. I was wishing i had my fly rod and some poppers . weird, just like summer fishing in november. I will take it!

Good story and pictures! What kind of waders is your buddy wearing? What kind do you like?

I like the uninsulated breathable waders, if it is cold water i just wear the right layers underneath, don't know what kind bob had...

Good looking fish. I've never tried tube fishing but it looks like it works. Thanks for the pics.
