Chumming

Recommended Posts

I was under the impression that in Minnesota it is illegal to chum(place food with the intention of attracting fish), but after reading the regs tonight could not find anything on the subject. Is it illegal?

Lunker ,

I know for sure that you can't use any type of game fish, including perch...
I'm not sure on the chumming...did it say that you could use a feeder or whatever they call those deals they use for catfish down south? Don't know that chumming would do you much good anyhow , except for panfish ...
good luck and set the hook!

I have heard of guys taking baitfish and fish guts & stuff and throwing it in a blender. After a while on "puree" they will pour the mixure in ice cube trays with a washer & nut for weight, then freezing. They drop them down their holes in the winter and as they thaw they give off scent. Don't know if the work or even if it's legal.

Why not just use a net?!
There is a term, if I may use it, that may clear the air.."Fishing Ethics". smile.gif

It is afterall, supposed to be a sporting challenge to the angler, not shooting fish in a barrel.

"Just because you can, doesn't mean you should"......Old Chinese proverb! smile.gif

I remeber reading something about it.. It is legal with stuff like corn, worms, and grains; but it isn't legal to chum with whole or parts of gamefish, nor live goldfish or minnows. And it's not exzactly "shooting fish in a barrel" Chumming helps for Carp and cat fishing; and in lakes where the carp are more of a roaming fish; it'd be near impossible to have any luck carp fishing without chum, unless they are surface feeding. But even this said, espcally in Rivers, it does not guarntee results.. and sometimes may do nothing to increase any sort of bite on a given day. Mostly it helps hold fish in an area, and attract them in; it doesn't neccsairly mean they are going to be more eager to strike your line.

    • So reviving a dead thread ..


      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

      Its under e bay listing 292931561061
    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
