Wallenpaupack Panfish Quest

Jeffrey's maiden voyage on Lake Wallenpaupack would be one to remember as he went solo on a panfish mission.  The day had some overcast to start and then the sun came out and shone brightly for this veteran angler.  The light winds made it much easier to detect the light bites in the low 40's degree water as he used finesse tactics to entice strikes.  Keitech baits were the main bait in use as Jeffrey caught well into the double digits of fish including some hefty perch, a few crappie, and a bonus slammer pickerel that took his offering.  Jeffrey harvest about 15 fish for a nice fish fry and returned all other fish back into the frigid waters.  Many great conversations of hunting and fishing were exchanged during the outing and the sounds of spring were in the air for this March day out on the lake.
