#@$#$%$! traffic! Tried to cut out of work early today and sneak in an hour of metro deer hunting - after spending 30 minutes going 3 miles on 35W I turned around and came back to the office, wouldn't have even made it there by dark. Sorry, just had to vent. Guess it'll have to wait until the weekend.

Gosh that would drive me over the edge. Its ten minutes home from my office on a bad day (meaning snow and stuff because there isn't traffic). Oh and I can often see upwards of a dozen deer on that drive as I go right past the state park... grin.gif

I gave up that crap and moved my wife and myself up to Breezy Point. No more traffic (other than weekend tourists) and my office is in my house. Life is good.

      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
