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

    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.
