I was down there Sat. morning and did pretty well. 5 eyes, 3 sauger, a big crappie, cattie, a rockbass, several smallies......and probibly the biggest walleye of my life! I've never got one in the 30" range, but I think I had one on. It hit like a snag, like most where doing, and as I turned the boat around with the troller it took off! I didn't think it was too big at first, but after a few hard runs I was loosening my drag in respect. I got it up off the bottom and within a few feet of the boat,once, and with a flash of his tail he was GONE! The rig busted at the loop to the swivel. I was sadd... and I still am. Ohh well maybe next time. I'll be up north this weekend but I can't wait to try the river again.

I was fishin a worm harness, no spinner or float, just a bead w/ a nightcrawler. Found fish from 13-28 fow, with 16-24 fow being the best for walleye. Most fish seemed to be in concentrated areas and they would hit it hard once and hold it. The 2 walleye I kept where both hooked deeply in the throat with atleast one of my hooks, and I wasn't giving them much line.

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
