Lake Shetek and Sarah have some decent crappies, up to well over a pound. Sunnies are very rare down here and the perch typically run 6 or 7 inches. Shaokatan does have some jumbo perch, if you can find them.

Bloody has nice crappies also. I agree, sunfish are rare. Most of the panfish guys are going for perch down here.

A lot of the lakes that have 6-7 inch perch in them also have perch a lot nicer than that in them. You just have to be at the right lake at the right time.

      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
