    I've caught crappie and bluegill on a beadhead prince nymph tipped with maggots, im sure anything small will work fine for panfish

    Almost any beadheaded nymph,brown,olive,or black. I fish them clean (no bait) just keep them moving and watch your Vex.I use a soft whippy longer rod 36 inches and use 4 lb golden Sten with a 2 lb floro leader. Working the up and down the water just watch your golden line for a slight twitch or if it bows out( a suspended hit)set the hook.

    J:
    Just about any fly will work thru the ice. Personally I like 1/100 oz hand tied mini food type. But I've used small buggers and nymphs.
