I can't believe it, I walk into a gun department, minding my own business and something follows you home, unbelievable.....at least that is what I told the bride.

Savage 17 HMR with a thumbhole stock (Yep, the same one that was in the paper on Sunday)

Now I need a new cleaning kit, and a new caliber boresnake.

I will post pictures later on how she shoots this weekend.

I have a thumbhole on my Pro Hunter. I'm kinda wishing I hadn't. Anyone else think the same. I like how it feels and how you put it to the cheek and it is right there but seems awkward when Pulling the hammer back.

That will be a nice tack driver. smile.gif tell the wife you had to have it. That usually works for me for some reason.

OH NO, I see some yotes not making it out of the strawberry patch blush.gif. I shot a HMR17 last year and it is a tack driver for sure. Let us know how the yotes like it grin.gif

      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
