I heard there were some pretty nice fish caught Tuesday evening from the guys that fish in the little fishing league tourney that they have on Okabena. Good sign for Saturday's event.

My father went fishing on Lake Okabena a couple of weeks ago and ended up catching a 5+ walley....I was cery suprised by it because I have never heard of anyone catching one that size on that lake. I grew up on Lake Okabena and remember trying to catch a lot of fish but none that size.

Good luck out there Bill. I just remembered I wouldn't be able to make it anyway. It's Murray Counties 150th and I have to work at the festivities on Saturday.

Too bad you can't make it Boilerguy, it will be a good time. The walleyes have been biting lately, so i expect to see some nice weights at the tournament. We should go chase some eyes some night, give me a shout.

Fishing was terrible, unless you were fishing for bullheads and catfish! I think only 7 or 8 boats caught fish and 3 fish weighing 10.5 lbs won. There were 11 total fish caught during the tournament. I was surprised because there was a good bite going on earlier in the week. Oh well, it was still fun!

      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 met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      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
