I especially liked the they feed after dark and most landings are closed part, you know, so people don't get any ideas. smile

Good to see that the DNR is taking measure of catfish and getting an idea of what is out there. Cats aren't just another "rough fish" any more. Kinda tough to survey without trot lines since they are always getting messed with. Electrofishing is tough too since the electric field is only so deep and cats are such powerful swimmers.

exactly.....

that doesn't mean that the shore is closed after dark though..........

Well many shores are of limits considering the critters that come out at night. And by critters I mean weird people.

Hey now, I might be weird, but I am not like those weird people mplspug is talking about grin Those type of people would never think of messing with me wink

It does take a certain type of person to shore fish the St. Paul area at night. Like fisherking said it is very nice to just sit back and enjoy the surroundings in that area.

Some times it is just good to go back to your roots and change the pace a little. Most of us started fishing from shore and it is (IMO) just a simpler, less hassle type of thing to do once and awhile. Drive down, hop out and cast. Wait awhile and then hit another spot.

Living up in Princeton, what I like the most is the $40-$50 gas difference between bringing the boat and driving the car per trip. Also when you are on a skunk streak going in the boat, the change in pace is something I have found keeps me going and not throwing in the towel.

Nothing like a nice lawn chair, no carver trestle bridge, a fire if you want and when you are ready to go, reel up and you are on the way home. No half an hour motor boat drive to the launch, loading up, then packing up the boat and over an hour drive home. Do not get me wrong, I love doing it, but it gets old fast when you get a couple skunk trips in a row.

Cool story LFC. Thanks for sharing. Gives a dude hope and I know one of these trips we will see a 40-50lber or bigger lugged out of this area.

I'm just ribbin' ya shack! wink

You guys all catch a biggun for me. Heading in for my shoulder surgery in about an hour and a half. No more flattin' for me I guess. Maybe I can get recouped enough for some late fall action. Tyler and I know of a spot that has produced fish later in the year, and it hasn't turned on yet so hopefully...

I like hitting it right downtown early and late in the year. You need at least one companion though. With this low water I wouldn't mind giving it a shot too.

Yesterday I visited a spot where you see the lights. I was all by my lonesome...for about 10 minutes. Next thing you know a group of 6 people show up. It was nice having the company and being able to [PoorWordUsage] about fishing. So sometimes it is nice to run into strangers, but only if they are carrying a fishing pole.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
