Congratulations Bassmaddness, I bet they were fun fish to catch! The DNR's senior fish biologist from Park Falls reports -
Opening weekend angling pressure was generally moderate on waters in the Upper Chippewa Basin, with a strong northwest wind creating some tough conditions for anglers on the larger lakes and flowages. Walleye are usually the primary target for most anglers in the Northwoods and success was generally fair to mediocre. The best action seemed to be in 8 to 14 feet of water and the active bite has been concentrated in the early morning hours and in the hour before dark. Most of the walleye that were caught have been in the 11 to 15-inch size, but a few fish in the 18 to 22-inch size have also been landed. A jig/minnow combination or a slip-bobber rig with a leech provided the best success, tho rapalas and stick baits casted along shore in the hour before dark also produced some fair action. Trout angling was also real popular on the opening weekend and the managed trout lakes saw some moderate to heavy pressure. However, with the windy and changing conditions, success was only fair. Both lakes and spring ponds produced a few decent excellent catches of brook and brown trout. Panfish received much less attention over the opening weekend – but these anglers seemed to find the most consistent success. Crappie and bluegill have really started to concentrate in the shallows, and anglers that were trying to escape the wind seemed to find them tucked along shore in the warmer bays.
