I was out there a couple weeks ago and after dark sourced four limits of crappies in a 40ft hole. They weren't big enough to get me back out there.

Didn't find any sunnies of any size, lots of small perch and no flags all day.

I was on West and East Rush yesterday. While I did pretty good with the crappie bite, I wanted to check out Goose lake. I went south on 4 but mabe I should have taken 8 south from rush lake.?

I wanted to check goose for walleyes in the evening. I made a wrong turn somehwere as I ended up on cty 10- a far cry from Goose.

Where is the winter access to goose.

Thanks.

We had planned to try goose yesterday. The guy at the bait store in Harris said there are a lot of springs in the lake and he advised not going out unless you knew exactly where to go. We drove by it and only a couple of trucks on the lake. Needless to saynot worth the risk.

I have not fished the lake this year, but as I recall, there is usually a road plowed out from where the lakes come together out to the south end. I have driven a full size truck out there many times. Not sure if anyone plowed it this year. As for walleyes, I have caught a few fishing for crappies, so if you target them, I bet you could do decent. I believe there's a special slot (17 inches?) though.

Thanks.Walleye Slot limits are good. The crappie limit is 5

I hear, and that as well is good.

Catch and release is even better yet.

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air.

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
