Finished wife’s honey do list...I’m free. Been watching forums like a hawk, now the decision where to go. Have about 1 1/2 drive so don’t want to waste too much time moving. Vets ? State Park ? Ship ? No sled, walking out....any opinions appreciated. Be Safe Everyone.

Was at the ship Friday evening and only caught one keeper. Good action though, may be better today. Good luck!

At vet’s now. Set-up a little deeper than I wanted (27’). Non stop marks on the flasher. Hav caught 15+ but they have all been 11-12”.
Awesome, thanks, that’s where my first choice is...need to clear the hangover, reset gear, been gill fishing, then get on road. Hope to hit ice by 2:30....good luck out there, sends some pics when you hammer them

Doesn't it seem odd that before DNR changed the minimum length from 15" you would catch a bunch of 14"/14.5" fish now it's a 13" min length and majority of fish are 12" I still never keep fish under 15" I know alot of the guys the same way but most fish caught are still just short of legal limit
Funny you should say that, caught 25-30 throw backs and 15 were 12’s...funny. Still fun to get out and catch them

Ya but the good thing is they aren't going to stay short forever like fish can in a small over pressured and over harvested lake as the eyes have plenty of food and these are the fish you will be eating next year, the year after, and the years after that one may be hanging on your wall. Lots of smalls only mean great fishing for years not too mention they are of the size we don't have to worry about them not making it. Enjoy it while it is good.
