My son-in-law was in a Sportsman Lodge sleeper with 3 other guys this past weekend. They said fishing was slow but they made up for it in size with a 25" 26" 28" and his PB 29.5" Walleye. They did bring 20 eaters home after 3 days.
I was up last weekend, fished Fri + Sat and we did alright. I think we were in 28ft of water. First day it was all jigging, second day 50/50 jig to deadstick. Average size, etc..... really had to work at it though, no real pattern we could figure out.
With all the pressure last year, I expected the fishing to be impacted moving forward. I wouldn't mind if they lowered limits moving forward to be honest.
Some of the weekend parties are pretty amusing. I feel like the commentators from MST3K with some of the shenanigans.
When I see trucks driving 50mph across the lake grinds my gears though. No respect for the ice.
