Is anyone fishing?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering why there's been no posts lately? I was thinking of coming over Saturday. I know the Northerns are biting, but how are the walleyes doing?

Cold, snowy, windy weather has limited fishing activity the past couple of days.

I haven't posted anything because I am not fishing now. I get extremely irritated by the ethics of fisherman in this area at late ice and crowding around the shorelines at the staging areas. I don't post anything to contribute to this mess.

It is becoming clearer and clearer that we need slot limits, wanton waste and littering laws enforced.

I'm getting ready and rigged for the open water season which should be in a few days if it would get a little warmer.

Kevin, I agree with your opinion on slot limits. I also believe that a select few fisherpeople (and I use the term loosly), are being greedy. Then again, when I look at it, it is a whole lot better than 5,10,15 yrs ago. Personally, I have never kept a walleye over the 2lb range. The only reason for that is because of the way I was taught to fish and hunt. I am not saying I wouldn't consider keeping a 10 or 12 in the spring, but then again I've never had to make that choice. Those people who keep every fish they catch or shoot anything they see are - in my opinion- becoming less and less, but I also believe as we get older, we pay more attention to those people (and well we should). I apologize, Kevin, if I upset you with my question. If you see a guy with a fishing rod in one hand, picking up trash with other while screaming at a bunch of kids--that's me, just trying to pass on the legecy. Don't get down my friend. I truly believe there are more and more of us teaching our kids sportsmanship every day.

I'm just getting spring fever. The last couple of days has been tough with the falling temperatures. I pulled my boat out to get it cleaned up and low and behold it has seen 3 and 1 inch snowfalls.

To make conversation...Locals like to blame out of staters for keeping too many fish. In my humble opinion wink.gif locals do do the most harm to most fisheries. They are able to act on the hot bite and know their way to the hot bites.

We had a tough winter for perch again. In general, locals developed a bad attitude and didn't fish as hard as normal during the tougher bite. The key word is hard. Now that we developed a walleye bite late in the season, word got out and there was a steady stream of fisherpeople from the city. Those who fish the hotbite and do not look for their own fish. I get frustrated with those folks. They also like to follow you around in the summer.

The thing about ethics is that we all have our own standards. We (I) get lost in the fact not everyone shares the same thoughts. I appreciate your comments and support and that you could read from my comments that I was down.

Keep on a posten smile.gif

    • tracked down some quick numbers; supposedly the heater draw at 7 amps, and that would be the main appliance to be ran at night +-1.5 hour total run time during a 8 hour sleep period; i should have plenty of power on the battery!
       
    • This got me curious, so I checked my profile and sure enough, I'm coming up on 10 years myself on 12/30.  However, over those 10 years I've posted WAY less topless selfies than Leech has!
    • ikr, Duff started some noise a while back but never happened? 😒
    • awesome thanks guys; found out my battery has 88 amp hours; I'll look into my heater, and radio, not sure what the LED lights are, i'll try to look there too;   how long do your guys usually last before in need of a genny?
    • You might be right.  The only common denominator between all of the kickers that have encountered major issues while with the Vikings is Priefer.  He has built the Special Teams unit into a Special Needs unit.  How they can under preform every year and break down at the most critical times and it not come back on Priefer is really mind boggling.  
    • Congrats whippersnapper.   When are you going to get your wings and throw a get together?👈👈☝️👍😁❤😁
    • Some radio's can be really power hungry. I'd just use a simple bluetooth speaker or some sort of standalone boom box of sorts (for example my makita radio can run for around 50 hours on a single battery). If your lights are not already switch them over to LED. Both of these are easily done to reduce current draw. If you search amazon you can also buy and install PWM led dimmers on all your lights, only turn them up as bright as needed. The great thing about PWM is it reduces your current draw unlike resistor based dimmers of past. Lastly I would take an actual reading at the battery and right where its wired (your results should be very close) when your alarm goes off. You may have a bad Co/lp alarm or the following issues that increase resistance to your alarm in turn dropping the voltage it sees: poor connections, too small of gauge wiring, excessive wire length.
    • There's nothing amusing, or even confusing as to why it happens.  It would be more confusing if outdoorsmen didn't overharvest.  Look no further than Harden's Tragedy of the Commons.       There's a near perfect correlation with the amount of free public resources and the inferior quality of those resources.  This is why reservations are largely wilderness ghettos.  It's why Red Lake collapsed.  The student loan bubble.  This is also why urban ghettos are looted every time there is a riot.  Subsidized housing, drinking water, livestock farming etc.     When people aren't responsible for the effects their actions have on the system they're impacting, those systems will fail.  But hey, keep helping the state buy up all the land and monopolize the lakes.  Maybe someday enough of that insanity will yield a different result.  
    • First off, you need to figure out you amp loading.... how many amps does your furnace take, lights, radio etc. and how long do they run. That should give you your amp hr rating. Then match your battery requirement up with the right amount of amp hours.  Not all batteries are created equal based on size. For example, a group 27 can range from 60-100 amp hrs.    Here is a good site for calculating battery requirements https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/tools/calculator-sizing-a-battery-to-a-load.html
