Although frequenting Lake Panic and being my NO 1 spot when in the south, may I get your views on the following regarding Lake Panic please :D

1. When is the most productive time to visit LP? Early morning, Late morning, Early afternoon or Late afternoon?
2. What made this time so special?
3. Best time regarding light conditions.
(I know in winter, the sun rises at the back of the lake which is a real special sight to enjoy early mornings.)
4. Any additional views from your experiences most welcome.

:D :thumbs_up: Cannot wait until Jul'17 for my first winter visit. :lol:
