Consider yourself lucky, I subscribed in January and they keep sending me Indiana Game and Fish instead. When I called the subscription people told me, hmmm, I thought it was strange you'd want the Indiana magazine. Gee thanks!

I read last months issue(march) and it was the same issue as the year before and the year before that and the year before that and the year before that.........

I cant even pick that mag up anymore. They once put a 200 acre lake as one of the top 10 monster pike icefishing lakes in the state. It happend to be a lake that is very close to my heart and not a monster pike lake, it is a numbers lake. I put up with a winter of tresspasers and garbage on my land, and I believe that and many other articles in that mag is some of the most irresponsible outdoors journalism that I have seen.

Same thing happened to me with the lake my parents live on. Its only 196 acres and they said it was on of the top ten big crappie lakes in ottertail county...there were ten times more people there than normal. These writers need to understand what happens when large numbers of people fish small lakes! They can really hurt the population. And as for the mag being the same old same old....I agree.

The same thing happens when specific lakes are talked about on this forum.

Yeah there is some truth to that, but if you don't want people in you hotspot then don't tell people where it is!

Dont want to be a stick in the mud, but the magazine "lake recommendations" that destroy small lakes are nothing compared to what people find on the web, The forums are good informative tools for fishing but when they are abused they make magazines look like a crying baby.

    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?  
    • sheez reb................i hadda clean all your slobber off the inside my screen when i opened this thread!!!!!!!!!!
