I had a pretty slow day, I hooked 3 fish over the course of the day, landed a brown around 20 inches, and then a chrome steelie around 26 inches. I lost another fish later in the day and decided to call it quits around 2 pm. I got the brown on a olive x legs pattern and then hooked both steelies on yarn. Water is quite muddy and is even worse today according to the flow charts. I'll be back later this week.

Hi guys,

I know some of you had asked for some pics if we had any luck, and I thought this would be a good thread to post them. My friend Jay (aka-EidesRX) and I met up with some friends for a nice traditional opener.

We caught a few fish in the morning and then retired to a small warming fire to cook some marinated venison. It was an excellent time. We didn't fish too hard, but managed a few fish, and more importantly got to see some good friends.

Awesome! Thanks for posting pics!

This spring isn't in the cards, but will have to make something work in the fall.

What were the crowds like up there?

It was really pretty crowded on Saturday. Then the river came up and turned off color on Sunday and the crowds were a little lighter, but the fishing wasn't as good for those who stayed.

      still love my setup for bluegills but not the best when I use a size 10 jig and fishin for crappies. I might grab the clam springs and rig a rod up with the wire thats a little stiffer and see how it works. this would just be for deep fish.

      Out Sunday ... Looked like a City of Trucks and Castles ... Bite was slow but managed a few Crappies / sonnies on Plastics.   we lost a nice walleye near the hole on a moon jig and crappie minnow.   Might have to go Perching in the shallows on south side of MilLacs this weekend.  Hey Moose ... what ya using for Perch on Millacs shallows 12-18 FOW?

      Was out after work for a couple hours yesterday and got two walleyes to bite. The Landing is getting flooded out. Was kinda hesitant on driving out after seeing all the trucks parking on Shore and taking the long walk out. With all the black ice out there it was a little spooky but after seeing 17" to 19"of good ice  was pretty comfortable with it

      I will be interested to hear of your experience.  Please let us know.    I think the anecdotal evidence was that the service and quality was not up to the premium price, although that could be old news.     "fine dining" has been a tough sell on the lake.   Several places have tried and failed that I am aware of.

      Only fishing for crappies. With a baby at home only get a few hours after work to fish.
