Hey guys, went out in about 10' of water tonight for a couple hours. Didn't get anything using a red shrimpo, but saw a ton of fish on the flasher that would rise to the bait, but not to take it. I couldn't get out to 14' like I wanted to, because I was a little skittish of some slush ice that I broke through, with liquid water underneath (but another layer of ice under that, never seen that before!)

It was pretty hard to say, because of all the snow/slush ice. I'd say anywhere from 4-6 inches, but I didn't check, sorry! There was one permanant out about 50 yards from shore, but that was the biggest thing on the ice. Has anyone seen my description of thin ice then liquid water underneath, followed by hard ice before? That really freaked me out, lol!

I was out last Sunday and there was around 5-6 past the point from the boat launch. I will say that it is pretty weird that there is a layer of slush under the ice. It made me a little nervous myself. I am probably going to venture out to the middle to see how the bite is. The bite was pretty slow where i was fishing but still managed a nice size bass and a 12 inch walleye, my 2 buddies didn't even get a bite. Anyone else have any luck?

      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 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
