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

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
