Panfish and bass are still biting

Me and Jack did well on the backwaters again Saturday with lots of big panfish and perch and lots of largemouth bass too. I caught most of mine with micro lite gear and 2 # test trilene.
I used a 32nd oz jig with either a small fathead minnow or power minnow anywhere from 2 to 12 feet.

medium sized bass were a good time on lite line!

This was pretty funny, I fet a sunfsh pecking on my plastic minnow when all of a sudden my rod just started bending down, yep, the pike swallowed the sunfish, and got my hook on its lip too!

Mississippi river panfish frenzy 10-11

Me, Ben and jack hit the backwaters of the mississippi looking for panfish, and they were waiting for us! We got a bite on almost every cast! fishing from 2 to ten feet down with plastics and jigs produced lots of nice crappies and sunfish, then towards evening a good topwater bass bite got our attention.
