Went out for a couple hours Tuesday and put a few in the boat to end my season. Not a real hot bite but can't complain about two 15"ers for the pan.
Thanks to everyone who shares info here. We've had the cabin for 6 years now and I'm starting to really figure things out with the help I find here. I'm nowhere near as good as I want to be but I always catch fish now, that wasn't always the case.
What a class of eater fish there is right now! Next year when they're all 16-17" will be great too, but it looks like we are going to have some lean years after that as far as eaters go. Anyone else see any signs of hope for a class after the current one? I don't remember catching anything under 14 all year

The wife and I are looking to rent a sleeper on leech before the new baby comes. Does anyone have any recommendations on who does it best? I have contacted a couple of places on availability but am looking for any suggestions based on experience. I have decided on Leech over Mille Lacs due to the goofy limits they have this year.
