Well, here is my report for the Morris Point area on 12-10-07. We hit the ice at around 9:30 am and was fishing in 24' of water by 10:00. We did not get a bite for an hour (we were marking fish from time to time). We moved to 21-22' for water at around 11:15 am. Talked to a few folks at that time and found the bite pretty slow for most. We fished hard but did not put one on the ice until 1:30. We picked up a few between 1:30 and 2:30 but after that the bite picked up and we finished at 4:15 with about 20 fish for two of us and kept 8 nice walleye and 6 decent sauger. The Walleye bit for the most part on larger gold or red glow jigs but you needed to be working them and sometimes pulling them 4 -6 feet off the bottom before they would bite. The sauger preferred smaller jigs but other than that did not seem to have much of a preference as to color or presentation. Ice was 12 - 14" and solid.

Been going out from there and/or Morris since a week ago Saturday. There is one good crack near shore at Graceton, other than that smooth sailing out to 26fow anyways.

      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
