Swamp: Just got back from there. Not many houses real close to Pine anymore, most have headed deeper to the mud. Not saying that there are no houses there, but certainly no where near the number as a couple of weeks ago. We were out in 33' about 8miles, and there were houses past us. Good luck and hang on.

My wife and I stayed w/ Bayview Lodge and rented a house from them on 01-16-08. We were about 6 miles out from Pine Island in 33-34' of water. We ended up catching about 40 and kept 11 saugers, 5 walleyes, and a football of a perch. Our best luck was on crappie sized demon jigs, glow/pink and glow/green being best with shiners. I also had good luck on a small orange/yellow northland forage minnow spoon with a whole shiner. I'd leave that on the bottom and carefully lift it every once in while. Usually there'd be a fish on it. The gal at the bait shop said bubble gum glow was good too, and we did catch a couple on that colored jig. Action was slow, but steady, till about 2pm and then it got tough! We had our 14 by 2 and were talking about getting back to the resort by 4 and ended up staying till 5pm to put our last 2 in the bucket....typical!!! From other's we talked to that night, it sounded like everyone caught fish and the action slowed in the afternoon. Looking forward to my early March trip w/ the guys from work!

      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 met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      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
