Hello everyone this is my first post, been reading for awhile really like the site now i can put in my two cents also. Maybe there needs to be slot limits assessed to local lakes, or more selective harvest to help out with this problem.

On this lake I do not think it is a shortage of fish that has slowed the bite but rather an abundance of food source as the perch population as exploded.

Diamond has alot of bait fish. Perch, Crappies and shiners,

all make for hard fishing.

i agree with the statement that there is not a shortage of fish. i don't think that the bite has slowed to terribly bad. about 1.5 years ago i moved to atwater and i am seriously on diamond 3 to 4 times per week. one thing that i have noticed is that the fish move a lot and have very distinguished patterns. once you figure this pattern out, one would be surprised as to the numbers of quality fish.

warrior I totally agree with you. Up until the last few years, i had a hard time finding walleyes in late summer or even mid summer for that matter until a friend gave me some new advice and techniques to try and wow did that make a world of difference. The fish are still there, you just have to figure out there patterns from season to season and then your success will improve.

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
