    Went out with my Dad to Panther today. First time at the lake. We went out around 6:30am and caught the morning feed. Caught 2 trout - one in the 12" inch range and one around 17". Went to the South shore and broke out the bass poppers - had at least 3 minor coranary events. Gotta love topwater fishing. :thumb: Used a zug bug to catch 3 more bass and then broke out the dry flies and got 4 more. Retired the fly rod and got out the spinning gear and used a Rapala to catch 3 or so more. Lotta little bas in the 10-13" range but did manage to land 2 in the 2 1/2 pound range on the fly using a sparkler pattern that I made up at the bench. Lost one fish that was bigger then the 2 larger fish fish but them's the breaks I guess. All in all though a great day on the lake. I enjoyed Panther but noticed a decided lack of panfish in the Lake - Anyone had any success for bream or crappie there?
