As far as I know, people are going both dirrections and having luck... get away from the crowds and get to a fresh area and they are finding fish, and many of them. The last spot I was at I was seeing several hundred fish a day, Cats, Sheeep head and walleyes and pike. I still can not get the cats to bite thought or the sheep head. My goal is to find out what stimulates these cats to eat under the ice.

In town, there's public access in Central Park behind the library just off Hwy 2. Just zero in on the old Cathedral spires.

So what do you use (bait/lure) to get these river eyes?

yeah,

move away from the crowds. There are a few good spots upstream from the park. Usually catch them from 5pm-8pm on red glow jigs, or blue in 8-10 feet of water. watch for slush spots on the ice.

I like flash lures, with a tail hooked minnow.

Up-stream from the park, there a a number of rather straight sections of river that are real shallow and not worth driling holes. I own a bit of land on the river east of town on a straight section of about 200 yards. 3 feet of ice and one foot of water on Sunday. frown.gif

      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
