 Have a question for you guys to spend a lot of time in the summer night fishing for panfish.    Do you find a better success rates in lakes that are clear versus lakes that tend to be a little more dark water?   I have been wanting to try my hand for the night time specs and was just wondering if you noticed any difference better or worse when the Lake has very clear water

I don't know of any lakes in our area that are not clear vs. stained. Where are you located?

gills mostly clear lakes at night.  crappie will feed at night in both stained and clear lakes.

. You must not get around much Taxi, the lake I've been fishing lately only has about 1 foot of visibility right now, definitely not typical of "our area".  It gets a lot of silty runoff.  Outlet channel is silted full to the waterline to 20 yards out into the lake.

I guess I just don't fish lakes like that. And you're right I don't get around as much as I should anymore.

I live in Noble County.  But a good example would be Lake James which is typically very clear water vs Rivir at Chain O Lakes which is stained most of the time. 

Thanks for the response

Clear water the Gills and crappies on jigging raps ( I tip with waxies)

Stained ripping raps ( No Bait )
rattles in stained do better

I think my definition of stained is different than others here. I just got back from a part of the country where stained is tea to coffee colored due to tannin from the trees.

To me muddy water is not stained but "turbid."

Yep, I've been thinking about crappie night fishn my main lake. It has a bridge going thru the middle and we catch Crappie under the bridge in the shade out of the HOT sun during the day so before the summer ends I'm gona park under the bridge at night and see if I can a limit of crappies.
