Nice walleye.

I'll bet you that the chewer you speak of was a musky. Although they don't currently stock the lake they did a bunch of years ago and I assume there are still some nice ones swimming around in there. Probably not reproducing though so once they're gone, they're gone for good.

I have no idea i got hundreds of loose worms,i have bought for the last 30 years,it is a cool looking worm thin.green with purplegreen specks in it,it sinks very slowly,a lot of wiggle to it, worms and swim baits seem to work better than cranks at ig but when i fish sterling cranks are better, i guess you never no ,so when i fish from shore i carry a little bit of everthing,i use a backpack on my dog to carry most of my tackle but i canit take him ig.

Nice Eye Oldsalt. That bait almost looks like a robo worm. That should work awesome for drop shotting! :D

Nice eyeball!
Say are they charging to get in yet? I've always wanted to fish that place...it looks so interesting. Plus the variety of fish and size are always noteworthy.

I was thinking the exact same thing. I've actually put those on a Charlie Brewer Slider and slammed the bass with them.

Not thrilled to hear walleye were not making it back into the lake this weekend.
IG is C&R only.
No hesitations on my end to confront that garbage. Too good of a place not to.

Why not "confront "people? Are fishermen that scary that you dare not inform them of rules on the lake they are fishing/ Did you ever see the brady bunch episode on tattle tales? I brought bluegill from my backyard pond one day last year/ there is a vhs rule where you cant move fish now. I was ignorant of that rule and the best way to teach me would be to tell me vs a 50 dollar plus fine.

But I believe strongly that peer pressure is more effective deterrent than anything the law has to offer. Alot less people would be breaking the rules if they cant get away with that crap without getting hassled. If they try ignoring you call the cops on them right in their face, let them hear you giving their description. If worse comes to worst I can outrun 95% of bucketheads. The tattle tale stuff is crap tho, first off the dnr of cops aint gonna show 90 % of the time. Then half the rules are bs, like if some guys were using bluegill out of ig- that place could use some fish harvests. I called cops on 3 teens I saw with a bass in a bucket last year. I regretted it later because that lake is infested with small bass, it is being mismanaged by making it catch and release only.
