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.

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
