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.

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.

      Well I am going out fishing today if ya want to tag along.

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......
