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

    • It hasn’t been a hay day but I’ve managed a limit of ducks each day plus a couple geese today.   Its always impressive coming out and seeing birds literally by the thousands but they aren’t fools!  Plus, anyone who hunts out here knows, you have to work to be rewarded.  Lots of scouting, lots of decoys, and lots of analyzing.  And then, lots of patients can come in handy.   40 yards out here looks 20 in Minnesota.  Its amazing.
    • Whatever it is, it looks to be over 50 and I’d like to see more. 😉😁
    • Day 1. We got back into my favorite spot around 615am...waited on the trail until sun up, plenty of bear sign around we didn’t want to push it. Legal shooting was about 715. Not very many hunters out here this year. One local told us it’s due to the bears...anyways we sat til about 10 then starting moving ridge to ridge. Didn’t see anything. I may have taken a small nap after lunch for a few mins according to my son. Around 1pm we moved to cliff edge where we could see out around 300 yards and sat until dark. About 430pm mulie does moved past us...probably 20 of them. Then all was quiet until 530 when I thought I heard a cow. My son then says ELK!! 3 cows were 40 yards from us but with the timber he couldn’t get a shot off. They then bolted back to where they came from which was a big clearing. Cole looked at me and said can I go look...I said ya... you crest the top and I will call and see if we can get them to stop. He disappeared from sight and i let off a small cow call and the woods erupted with cows making all kinds of noise and half hearted bugle.  I was waiting with anticipation for what comes next. I hear his rifle bark and then a flash of orange on the cliff above me....huge grin and I nailed hear. He waited for about 5 mins never saw the bull come out, there was 30 cows in the field and he got a dandy. Elk down on day 1 of his first elk trip. We gave each other a huge hug and some high fives! Then the work began. Finally made it back to camp around 10pm. We are worn out and ready to get back out in the morning to find that bull! Stay tuned it’s been everything we could ask for and it’s just beginning! 
    • its interesting thats for sure. puma for sure me still thinks. Leaves are about foot and a half would put the head at about 3 feet or so. Me double thinks cougarumamountainlioncatamountpuma ! 
    • Can-ya-mount a panther in Minnesota? 😉
    • be careful Eyeguy!! I would like to ice fish with you a few time this winter.
    • Well, that was pretty pathetic! Regardless of Annexstad’s health status, Morgan has to be the starter next week! Offense looked so much better with him under center. That’s about the only positive thing I have to say.
    • Big Dave I'm thinking it's a mountain lion or maybe a catamount. 
    • Sorry guys didn't realize posting a video would cause such a controversy! 😆. Anyways, yes, isolated cover has been what has seemed to work great for me, especially on pressured lakes. As far as catching bass goes, it's what I target 90% of the time in summer simply because I love the fight! Spring and winter I mostly target walleye then.
    • Wow did Butler look good lastnight! Saw a lot of things (particularly in the 4th quarter) that show this team is NOT very good without Butler. Apparently the fans have no ill will towards him, as they MVP chant was getting pretty loud.
