Was out today between 11 and 3 PM. It looked like I was the first one out from the public launch. Walked across to Pickerel Bay and set up in about 5 to 6 feet of water. Ice was between 3 and 4 inches thick. I caught about 20 bluegill and kept a limit of 10 fish.( Yes, it's only a 10-fish limit) and of those 20 bluegill not a one was over 7 inches so I did keep 10 fish that were between 6 and 7 inches. Which brings me to my opinion: I think it's time to raise the panfish limit here as there are tons of small panfish. This is not just todays observation but also from the open water season catch. I have caught very few gills that went over 8 inches. I think by allowing a more liberal harvest of the small fish it might help the size rate. I know this is anecdotal information based only on my experience but it seems that the last few years the size has gone down and the abundance has gone up.

First time out on Eagle Spring this year,Notice posted at the launch that two of the bays had been sprayed for algae.......not a good sign:(.Probably because of the late spring,weed growth,other than Coontail is at a minimum.Managed several small bass & alot of follows from some very nice sized Bluegills.

Highlight of the morning was seeing a Bald Eagle take off from the large island & soar over the lake.

Although the fishing was slow,it was great to be on the water again:).

Btw,adding an "old school" photo from the 80's,of my buddies with a couple of nice Eagle Spring fish........taken at Kroll's Resort,by the legendary John Kroll;):).
