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

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
