I kind of expected this for this year. Last year I caught a lot of legals, and almost all were in that 18 to 19-3/4" range, along with a ton of 12-13" fish. The lack of 14-16" fish last year had me concerned that there wouldn't be a strong year class of upper end legals.

This system is absolutely full of 21-24" eyes though. There are a ton of 12-13" eyes again this year too. I have a feeling next year should be a much better year for legals with the 15-1/16" eyes and 12-13" eyes in the system right now. I also don't keep any to eat out of here, but know guys that do. I come over to catch the slots, and enjoy the lack of pressure on this system during the summer.

I guess the slot is working the way I'd like it too, more big fish. Others who want to eat fish may not like it as much. Again, I think it's more of a year class thing than anything.

Well I should of stated we put the boat in at 6:30 am and it was overcast, when we got off the water at 12:30 and it was sunny. No MWC for us we are retired just two years and I will say this was our best day on the water in the last two years.

When I gave it the the gal at the landing she said she wasn't aware of them having a specimen. We snagged a log on the north end of the lake and it was attached to that. Undoubtedly it's a zebra muscle.

Petenwell is a decent sized lake, dana-d, but from where I was fishing after the MWC on Saturday, I could see no clouds. Of course, I was on the southern half of the lake; maybe you were WAY up north.

The fishing was very slow for me on Saturday afternoon. By slow, I mean I probably had a half dozen walleyes with a couple the were around 16 or so and a few shorts. All fish released as I won't eat them from Petenwell.

Yes, the bite has been tough for some time. I'm starting to wonder about the effects of the slot limit. We used to unhook a lot more walleyes 10 years ago than we do now. Also, used to catch smallmouths almost at will. Those days are gone and cats have taken over. Haven't heard from the local expert on year classes in a while...

By the way Shane, that mussel is the first one actually submitted.

Dana-D should have fished in the MWC. She definitely would have placed. Seems like tough fishing these last couple of months. Peace, Dobber Big Smile Cool Big Smile

I'm pretty sure zebra mussels have been in Pete and the Rock for quite some time.

Like I said what I heard was over 100, from folks at Pete park I think they where going on the last MWC in 1997, they had 196 boats. I also said we would know how many after June 22. I myself would of put money on less then 50 boats.

Wanted to give a big shout out to Jesse Quale for showing us a great time on the water today. Had a blast hooking into back=to-back trophy skis while fishing for walleye. We landed one and lost the other at the back of the boat trying to fit a monster into a walleye net--lol!! Had a blast catching walleye and white bass all day long. Highly recommend Jesse to anyone looking for a knowledgable guide. Peace! Mike
