I am hoping they are good by now...!?! We head out there every new years and it is always good...at least for walking. Even with last years warm December there was 5-6" in some of the bays.

Anyone?

Carlos was one of our last lakes in the area to cap over. I would use extreme caution the first couple of times out.

Thanks Wayne. That is disappointing. We are headed out again this year for new years, please keep us posted as you know more. I am hoping the next 2 weeks can add some thickness.

I agree with what Wayne said I live on carlos and it isn't very thick at all. I would wear a life jacket out the first couple times. I know I will be going out next week to check! on the 22nd I can help you more then!

Thanks Drake, please keep us posted. Where are you on the lake? We usually go out over by Blakes(south end). The last 4-5 years we have had some solid ice by new years, at least 6", never an issue. I was hoping with the cold snap the ice would be decent, (Contact Us Please) snow.

      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
