Targeting Multi Species Panfish

In my location of New Jersey, panfish include a variety of Species. I enjoy a Multi species outing either fishing alone or with friends or Family members. Bluegill, Pumpkinseed, Red Breasted Sunfish, Bullheads, pan sized Stream Trout, White and Yellow Perch, Crappie, a few Rock Bass, a few Green Sunfish is what I encounter. All are welcome to join and archive their techniques and Species List .

Today first I tried dragging bottom with a 1/4 oz Carl Hendrix Jig tipped with a Crawler piece. No one Home. Was thinking Bass White and Yellow Perch.  All small Gills today under a float 3'8" deep in 4-8 feet of water. Three Spikes on a #6 Aberdeen and Mealworms or Crawler piece on a #4 Aberdeen. 50 deg. WT at the NW incline /Inflow Pipe Spring Spot. 45 Minutes 1:00-1:45. Cold east wind in the face.45 deg air temp

“I'd like to see those flies you got 15 Gills on!”

meeee too!

I still have some Cosgrove mini-poppers, sent by Jim. That was some years back.

I was still fishing “redneck tenkara,” at that time: crappie pole and flies about which I knew nothing. Cos sent me those little, 1/4” poppers and I couldn’t keep the fish off them.

And I had never seen such tiny feathers! I still dont know how he made such tiny bodies, either.

I won’t fish them now because I might lose the danged things….

and as memory serves there were also some dinky disc spiders in the initial package, and somewhere in my files, I have a “Flies by Cosgrove” folder.

I’ll try to dig that out tonight

Calico Bass, that was what we called Crappie in our Youth. growing up in NJ.  I believe that's somewhat of an Atlantic corridor term for the Species. My Mom was from Worchester Massachusetts and she told me what I had caught was a Callico Bass when I described the creature. I still recall catching my first one fishing off a Dock early in the morning .

Jim Cosgrove .I'd like to see those flies you got 15 Gills on ! You get a Water temp? I am trying to figure out how to get Gills and other panfish on artificials when the water is in the 40's to mid 50's. I always seem to rely on crawler pieces and mealworms in that situation.

We have here members from NJ, NC,SC,OH and IL. I am getting Water temps in the low 50's  and panfish are only hitting crawler pieces on light hooks .It usually takes a while (Maybe WT at 60+degrees ) before they hit non tipped baits. Which panfish species do you find the most aggressive after ice out ?For me I'd say White Perch  followed by Yellow Perch . After ice out a NW incline spot with an inflow Pipe is where I start as I've had the most success through the years there early in the year . However I do recall good sucess in a SE cove also but a little later on .
