Went outy on the Sauk River this past weekend, and brought home almost 4 limits of channels between the 2 of us. all form 1-2 pounds the biggest was 3lbs. We let 30 or more go, they were biting like sunfish.

What do you mean by "brought home almost 4 limits between the two of us"? That doesn't sound legal to me.

That thought crossed my mind also... Maybe they limited out for 2 people for two days = 4 limits???

My guess is that he got 2 limits on day one, they ate the fish, and he got 2 more limits on day two, making a very successful 4-limit weekend for the two guys.

That's a lot of cat to eat in one day, just sounded fishy (no pun intended) to me that's all. I knew he meant two limits one day and two the next, but it just didn't sound right.

Sorry I shared.

#1 17 fish over 2 days

#2 Fed 7 people 1st day, froze the 7 caught 2nd day

#3 Have 3 people in my home who can legaly take fish so 7 in my freezer is fine.

#4 With my position in the community and other organizations I am about the most law abiding citizen you will find.

Just because 2 gouys caught the fish does not mean they were the only 2 who ate them

LFC and aandrud thank you for giving me the benifit of the doubt and you are correct it was over the 2 days, and I feel it was a great weekend for a guy who just had hernia surgery.

Brownie, I don’t think anyone was saying that you broke any laws. In your original post you stated “brought home 4 limits between 2 people”.

It was just a matter of grammatical interpretation.

Sounds like you guys had a lot of fun, and that is what it should be about, I bet those channels were tasty.

Get that hernia healed up and please feel free to share your stories in the future.

Alot of people will put a limit of fish in their freezer one day and put another limit in the freezer the next and not even realize they are breaking the law, and while I said it didn't SOUND legal, I didn't intead to imply that you had broken any laws, I merely asked for clarification.

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
