Was there tonight. Weedy everywhere. Only a few other people fishing, all from shore. Guy I was with used his trolling motor to move around. All we caught was weeds. How is one supposed to fish that lake when the weeds are up?

i guess it depends what your targeting, was there a inside weed line close to the bank? if your fishing for bass im sure the majority of the lake is in post spawn mode, so fishing for them may be tough, how was the water color?

Water seemed to be cloudier than normal. Maybe recent rains have washed field residue and "murked it up". Did notice a soybean field planted 5'from shore. Weeds are in full bloom along with the biting flies near the hog barns.

How about targeting walleyes. Any suggestions on technique?

Find differences in bottom comp. They will be holes in the weeds. Slip bobber, pitch a weedless jig If you ain't gettin weeds on your lure, you probably won't catch fish.

      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 met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      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
