Crappie limits to high!!

Recommended Posts

I have been out fishing a few times this year and have seen guys take a limit of 35 crappies each in a party of 3 or 4 people. I know that it is the legal limit, but in my opinion it's way too many. This is an excellent way to destroy our natural habitats of good numbers of fish. When are our law makers gonna wise up and lower limits to a more reasonable limit. Nobody needs to take that large a limit each time they go out.Just venting a little. Makes my stomach turn when I see anyone taking THAT many fish. But , it's just my opinion..

People need to show restraint and common sense. A segment of our society thinks it is their right to rape our resources.

It may be legal to take home a limit everyday but we do have possesion limits. But the last thing I want is game and fish coming into anybodys home and searching freezers.

I also personally think it not right to catch a daily limit everyday and give your fish away. Take who ever you are giving them to fishing and let them catch their own fish.

I too believe that 35 is a bit much, but when you ask a conservation officer about it they state that if we have a winter kill ALL the fish will be dead. Thus they would rather us take as many fish as possible from the lakes. I'm not sure if that is a great strategy but thats what I've been told. I wish the limit was 15, people would been a little move selective when havesting fish. Just an idea.

I don't know. I think more strict regulations on bodies of water is up to the local management of those bodies of water. I know some bodies of water in the state are "fished out" but I personnally know some bodys of water that are "underfished" and I would like to see more guys taking there limit for reasons of stunted fish, etc.(but that is a whole nother topic). This is good discussion and is worthy of its time. But my opinion is that some people are fisherman and some people are anglers.

You guys heard of Froelich Dam south of Mandan.

This lake gets fished out every 5 years or so. Word gets out of a hot bite and every person with a rod and reel hits it and destroys it. It looks like the parking lot of Walmart for a couple of weekends.

Fishing out lakes is a "custom" people have devloped and an accepted way of doing business.

How do you change that?

    • 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
