Was looking in the WI regs and I don't see any special Walleye regs for Yellow Lake this year, is that the case?  So the Walleye limit will be back to 3 this year?  Not sure 3 keeper quality fish will be that easy to catch, but at least you can keep them if you do catch them.  Looking forward to being in the boat again, chasing Walleye.

Yep, limit's 3.  Seems to me they made that permanent last year for all the ceded territory.

 

I'll be up looking for those slab crappies :)

Don,

 

That very well could be the case, as I didn't get a chance to fish Yellow Lake last year for the first time in 20 years.  I guess I just didn't catch that last year if it was the case.  A friend of mine that lives on the lake has had good luck on HUGE Crappies this year, not much for numbers, but he sends me pics daily of some big ones.  He hasn't kept any this year cuz he can't find the keeper size yet, meaning 11" or smaller.

Releasing the prime breeders is important.  Kudos to your buddy.  11" or smaller is a great rule of thumb...

Got out and fished Yellow for the mn opener weekend ,,, No hassles at the landing like I would have seen on Mn waters,,, Picked up a few fish friday ,,, Lots of short fish and the nuisance pike,,, Still lots of short fish saturday but we had our 2 man limit by 9:28 am with the average fish being 18 inches add to that a few bonus crappies and not a single pike

Crappie fishing yesterday was slow but steady.  Caught WAY more on plastics than minnows.  Most fish in the 5-7 foot range. Not spawning yet, even though the water temp in some of the bays was well above 60 degrees.

    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
