I know a couple guys that went up this last weekend and said the fishing was tough. Caught some nice perch on Leech but that was about it. Smaller lakes were slow, very slow.

We were up in the Outing area last weekend and hit up Eagle lake, caught hundreds of sunfish but only were able to keep 30 for 4 guys, lots of sorting. Picked up a couple little snakes on a tip up with shiner. As far as ice goes there was a solid 2+ft on the lake and i guess they've been driving all over up there for quite some time. The lake are fairly rough due to the early slush freezing and the tracks made through them but overall i'd say the lakes are better then i ever thought they would be this year.

      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
