Will be heading up this week and staying at Stony Point Campground. Lookig for a close spot for sunnies and bass for the kids. Really it is for the kids. Any info would be helpfull. Thanks

If you want action for the kids, try getting right up in the pencil reeds and do some vertical jigging with small jigs for bluegills. Downsize the hook size to ensure better hooksets and tip with a chunk of worm to speed up the action. I know that Sucker Bay yields some big gills this time of year and would suspect that it is probably the same story almost anywhere on the lake. Also, don't overlook fising just outside those same areas for Largemouth. Plastic worms, jig and minnow or spinnerbaits can all yield some beautiful bucketmouths and could provide a youngster with a fish of a lifetime. Good luck

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
