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.

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.

    • That is some great photography!
    • In late summer end of July and August when the water warms and the oxygen drops in the shallows. I have caught Eye's trolling deep diving raps, plugs behind dispy divers for suspended fish over 50-70 feet of water where the bait balls are. So, yes please don't follow us lost crazy people around out there! 🤪  😁
    • They call it 'No Man's Land' because nobody fishes it, unless they are lost, stupid or their locator is in simulation mode. That works for me because that's my comfort zone. Most people wouldn't believe the numbers of trophy fish I have caught in water that's over 50' deep. Recently I was out on a local lake trolling for walleyes in deep water with shallow and medium diving crankbaits, and I noticed 3 other boats that were avoiding the normal structure. Maybe their locators were broken or in demo mode, but for there to be 4 of us driving slowly around the open water, it seemed like more than a coincidence. I boated 4 eyes in 4 hours, with a smaller average size than I was hoping for. I am not looking for lakes, spots or secrets.... I am just curious if anybody else has noticed these 'fools' fishing water too deep for 'normal' fishing. Or maybe you have tried it a time or two, let me know what made you steer your boat away from the shoreline? Did it work out for you?  Is this style of fishing becoming more popular, or am I just paranoid?
    • Don't know yet if there are more.   
    • nope, they just like my bluebird houses! they got evicted again 2 nites ago!!!!!!!!! i learned a long time ago no millet. i only feed sunflower and safflower seed along with thistle!
    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
