can't say if they are froze up yet but maybe along the shorelines out of the wind, I was wondering if the docks on the public access' are still in the water? tough to land my boat without a dock

Green is open! Ramp in town OK! Fish are still biting! Troll a deep diving jerk bait along the 8-20 ft. breaks. If you can find some weeds along the breaks that will help. Use your electric if it isn't to windy. If you go over to Nest you'll need to break a bit of ice. Be careful out there! The water is COLD!!!!!!!! Worth the effort though! Yesterday I got a pair of sixes and fives. Some bonus smallmouth and northern to. Good Luck! If you see a old guy in a little tin boat that will be me.

Thanks for the info, I made it to Green and cauught several fish. Found fishing hard. Water temps 40-42. Fish were all caught 8-20 feet. East landing on nest was frozen. You must have used the West access.

      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
