fishing on the local lakes like Fish, Rice, Boulder, ect has gotten better in the last few years. Back in the 1970's these lakes were good and then got bad in the 80's to early 1990's and then started to improve in the late 90's. Just an observation

I don't know, I've had some very good fishing throughout that time period although I've noticed some years better then others. Being all natural reproduction thats understandable to get the cycles. Panfish can really swing up and down.

Still if you believe that year classes use specific areas and depths you can get on eyes no matter what the trend is.

I think the one eye over 20" reg is going to help a lot and we're just beginning to see the benifits.

I remember as kids we kept all the 3,4,5, 6 pounders we could handle(walleye). That was in the days before enlightenment. Would never do that now. Everybody did. In the last 10 years, I have seen more people releasing those walleyes and keeping the 14, 15 inchers. So maybe that's the reason.

      Leech, my experience exactly, I hated the thing! I'm a Mister Twister Piranha guy, it's a little heavier duty than the green ones but never had trouble with the green ones either over the many years I've used them. I can use a filet knife on those rare occasions we do a shore lunch somewhere.

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.
