Bigblu,

Now that is my kind of fishing.  Plenty of action and a couple for the freezer.  Just enough to make you want to go back again soon!

In my experience it seems the opener tends to be prety slow in general and this year even moreso due to the late ice.  The Walleye just spawned according to the hatchery folks.   Fished from shore 6am-1pm.  Had what seemed to be a fe bites that I missed. Caught one perch and then 2 walleye about 7" fairly early and then dead. Ordinarily I would expect dozens of small walleye.  At 12:30 I did manage to catch a nice 17" walleye.

This somewhat mirrors last year with the difference being far fewer small fish and my lone keeper was an hour later this year.

Hi my wife and I are taking the kids to the south camping area and was wondering if there’s anyplace from shore the kids can catch panfish?

From what I hear there was a lot of melt on Sunday just from 1pm to 5pm.  Today it is quite warm and windy and the remaining ice shoudl go away fast.

Walleyes for Tomorrow are preparing to set nets for the portable hatchery and I'll bet they are heading out soon.

Actually the lake is maybe 60% ice and it's honeycombed and breaking up. I was there today too for the BEPCO Meeting. Temps will be in the 70's the next 3 days with winds up to 45 mph and rain. Thats going to break up the remaining ice in a hurry. I expect the ice to be gone except for maybe a few stray chunks by Thursday. DNR said the same thing as they are hoping to do fish surveys later this week.

Took a drive to survey the water this morning. The lake is still about edit: 60% ice covered and some of it looks really thick. 


Edit:  Others are saying it will be gone by Friday.
