A good buddy fished on Friday out there... bobber didn't move.

Truly AMAZING how many houses are concentrated out there. If things are over, I would imagine it will thin out shortly.

the bite has been on the downward swing for over a week, but then when you take that many crappies out that has come out for weeks it bound to slow down. I here Diamond has done the same thing. Lots of small ones.

was that many fish moved from the lake? or just someone claiming about a great bite that really was not there.

Great bite with lots of crappies taken out of the lake. I would be suprised if there were any left. Little lake + 1 area being fished + lots of fish caught = not many left for the future \:\(

We fished Eagle and Dimond last Friday. Notta on Eagel and only a few on Dimond. Tons of small perch and about 8 crappies, nothing real big. Must be on the down hill swing. So many houses on such a little lake.

I fished Eagle a little over a week ago and had tremendous luck with crappies. Numerous fish over 13 inches. Fished it again this last Saturday and I should just stayed home and watched football instead.

The bite, and the fish, are gone.

I fished Foot about a week before Eagle was hot. Did alright by the fairgrounds with walleye. Haven't been out there in a few weeks though.

Well thats a ball buster. I just read it in the Minnesota Sportsmans Magazine for a lake to try, but seems like it got hammered already, so sounds like something not worth going to now. But it will bounce back, like all good panfishing lakes do.

      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
