Go to Gorman if you want small eyes most are 12" or less thats if you are able to keep the sheeps and dog fish off mad.gif We have had better luck on German and Jefferson. I'd try one of those before Gorman.

my best advice for u is goto one of those other lakes other then scotch. i have heard people catching a few eyes out there but nohting to brag about. all the eyes in scotch are slimers so if u want to take the time and fish them then go for it... u would be better off trying some other area lakes before scotch

Ill let you in on a little secret...Scotch has always been good to great. Only a handful of locals have fished it and it gets phenomonal on a boom bust cycle about every 3 to 4 yrs. Its just this yr someone opened their mouth. Scotch is just down the road a couple miles but i was never a fan of it. the launch sucks and theres bigger and better walleye fishing to be had on other lakes in my opinion. Namely madison and washington. im a madison guy if you can tell grin.gif

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
