I've had my permanent on Winnie all season and have been setting it on the breakline that runs up the East side of the lake. I've had a lot of perch and pike action, as most of us have by the sound of it. However, I have not been able to zero in on the walleye. This will be the last trip up and by what I've been reading it seems like the fish have moved into shallower territory. My house is out on Moxey's in the middle of a small 17' flat. 2 weeks ago it produced 9 keeper Perch (10"-11"), 2 Pike (21" & 25") and 2 small Walleye (both 9") **released**. It was a good time but I promised the Mrs a meal of Walleye and I'd hate to be a chump. I'm planning on moving the shack Friday morning and was thinking I'd go deeper on the break but now am second guessing as it seems my supper has moved up. Any suggestions? This is my first post. Thank you to all who reply.

Sac,

Friday evening, we caught 3 walleyes in 18 feet of water, quarter mile off shore on east side, using fatheads and glow jigs. 5:30-7:00 pm. 15, 16 & 18 inches. Hope this helps.

      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 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
