Shadyzr: I don't blame your wife for the nervousness. Even if you know you've plenty of ice underneath you, there's just something erie about driving through water which looks more like June than March. I heard they had shut down Wheeler Point access on Sunday. It seems every year someone drops one in in the 4 mile bay area. Once that water starts to move under there and towards the river it goes down hill quickly. Oh well, now open water and then we can dream about ice fishing again next year. Bill

      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
