Smallies on Pepin (PICS)


Recommended Posts

Last Sunday, during the mayfly hatch, took the family out on pepin for the first time. Didn't have much luck until we fished against a wind blown shore in 4-6' of water with leeches on slip bobbers at around 3' depth. Must have look enough like the black mayflies to trigger a bite.

This first one hit as i was fooling around with getting the bobber stop set. Not too bad.

This one was real nice (hey no looking at the wife). I estimated it too be around 3-4 pounds (because my scale had just fallen overboard when we grabbed the net-yeah, bummer). It was taken on one of the kids lines that we had taken over because they weren't into it right then. You know kid's lines -- 6lbs with knots here and there and all frayed. So took a while to land it.

the big one was 3 lbs at least. may not show in the picture, because it was not zoomed in but i know it was. i have held 3, 4 and 5 lb bass. this was 3 lbs.

what kind of person comes on forum to make a judgement about the weight of someone's fish just by a pic?

C'mon guys, give the guy some credit for catching the fish instead of judging how big they are. Its not always size the counts, pictures can make things look smaller as well. Personally I'd be greatful to catch some like that. Carlcmc, nice fish man!

Pictures can lie like a rug one way or another. I say nice fishies.

Guys, who cares how much they weigh. The dude was on a pontoon with the LW and the kids. To catch a fish under those oppressive circumstances is a feat in itself. There's been times where I've passed the rod to both kids and the wife to reel in a sheepshead to kill the complaint chain.

    • could that happen???? yea probably, but unlikely.   i've been chopping or helped or watched cutting spearchucking holes since i've been about 8-10 years old, i'm 65 now, and never remotely seen it happen. ''closest i came was cut a spearhouse hole, plopped the house over it and ended up with a deadhead right smack in the middle of it. the top of the log about 4 ft below the ice!!!!!! 
    • That would be nice til you caught a log frozen in the ice and broke both your arms and your back.
    • Screw your little toy e-augers and chain saws!  😏  😆          
    • the wife and I took a little drive to Arkansas for one more ride. 
    • I get where your coming from Leech. There are some gray areas and loopholes and they know how to work them. These youtube people they want you to be angry, it all plays right into their revenue.   The thing with these youtubers is they unfortunately  have a mass following and they will tell all their fans to show up at the DNR offices, court house, call the office phones etc. And it just drives up their following, youtube views etc. and the result is just more revenue for the youtube channel and people get sucked right in (myself included). Like I said love him or hate him he's generating significant income by doing it and its like a bad car wreck you just cant look away.    In some cases the DNR getting involved the risk outweighs the reward if you get my drift. look at the crowds that came out for him over a misdemeanor jet ski fine in TN. It looks like its straight out of the movie "Time to kill" lol:   More:  
    • Another reply from the DNR Capt.  Sounds like their a bit afraid to dig in and get what the need to prosecute.   Mr. Beeeped-out  😉 I do want to thank you for your time in researching and sending us the information.  The second video in particular involves the CBoyz near Cormorant Village in Becker County.  If you watch many of their videos they are full of violations.  We have met with the County Attorney’s Office and we have been told that unless we can provide a date/time of the actual event they will decline to prosecute.  We have identified many of the players in these videos but only have a date/time of the video release and not the actual date and time.  We have also made contact with them and taken enforcement action in many of their videos.  They are not afraid to film our officers in action.  In addition the first video was a year or two old if I recall.  I will not disagree that when looking at the video there is areas of concern but unless we can observe the damage and be able to testify in court that the wetland was damaged we would likely not be successful in prosecution.  We will continue to monitor their activity and if observed causing damage we will be taking enforcement action.  We appreciate and share your concerns.  If you have any additional information please forward to us.  Capt. Seefeldt   These Jackwads!    
    • Can't stand the guy and don't watch his craap!  I was watching videos on the Sherp vehicle which is pretty cool and these two popped up.  When I saw them mowing over Wild rice beds it [PoorWordUsage]ed me off and got me to send it in to the DNR.
