I was down by the river tonight while working. Took my flashlight and was looking at the river, was only 2 feet deep, and i see these little shiny balls. They started to mover towards me and low and behold they were walleyes. Not just a few by i saw 20-30. Plus some huge carp and lots of sheephead and suckers. The walleyes were kinda floating near the suface and some looked to be poking there noses out. We caught a few down there this year but with all of those should of gotten lots more. Might have to give fishing a try tommorow. Most were one to two pounds but i saw one at least 3 or so. What are they doing??? Feeding, or just hanging out. they didnt look in hunting mood, just kinda laying around swimming slowly.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
