Was out last night starting my pre fishing for the first night eye torny in MN.got out to the lake at about 7:30 and started my hunt got 4 eyes 17 to 19. 3 drum and a white bass. was looking like it was going to be a great night of fishing I had just got a drum and it was getting a little dark and i hadent put my light up in the back yet. so i put the light up turn it on were good to go. well i started to troll along the area i was working. i look over and my light is not on (funny it was just working) as im looking at it i pull the bulb out and poff its a milion bits of glass. night cut short due to no light. looked like the eyes were snapping in about a 30 yard area i was trolling. speed was 3 mph 2.7 to 3.3. i wish i could have stayed out for an hour or 2 more to cast to this area but luck sent me home.

hope to get out next wed and try it again. i need to find a pattern in there movements. anyone else have any luck with eyes?

I went to Tetonka last Saturday. There were to many boats with there Elec, bow mount motors in my way. So I sliped over to Frances. I found a nice weedline around 80 yards long in 11 FOW. We had a good time with bass and eyes.

Went to another lake Sunday. We sat on top of a school of small Crappies and Blue gills. WOW! the school at times was so thick it had a grayline. We took 13 slab Crappies. If we cought small crappies we would step up a size untill the slabs would hit,once we had that down we would do the same thing with another bait. Blue and sliver castmaster 3"long and small countdown Raps were the Best. THey would hit it on the fall.

      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
