Burntside 7/29

14 posts in this topic

Trolled 9 hours. 2 releases but ended up 0 for 2. Water temp is way hot. Tried all my old haunts but to no avail. Spoke to two other anglers with the same results. Ah, the dog days. Might try to sneak up to Tofte or Ojib this week after work and poke around up there.

Must have the beast water ready!!!

Chunk, if you hit Ojib take a look at the roller portage into Triangle to see if I could get the 16' up and across. I'm coming out of the BWCA August 23rd, but boat camping around Ely until the 30th. We'll talk this weekend!

Yep, she's all there minus a graph so I was fishing blind but the balls never lie grin.gif . Ojibs roller portage is in great shape. This coming from a frequent visitor of it that I know. Your rig will be no problem at all. I don't think my girl will make it over to triangle though. If I got rid 500 pounds of motor, maybe. See ya this weekend!

Just left some maps on your boat. Didn't know what else to do with them.

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
