7th Place aint bad

4 posts in this topic

My fishing partner actually caught the fish, but he is only 19 and the guide can't catch them all. Not bad though for a couple new guys to Island Lake. Thanks for the tips Loonasea. Steve, we talked about sublte and slow, I went bigger and deeper as I said on thephone. It paid off. 5.5 lbs 25". Now I wonder if I won any door prizes.

Actually we ended up 6th. When we went to FC today to pick up the check, I noticed that 6th place fish was 5lbs 4 oz, My partners was 5lbs 5oz. I asked Scott, "whats up here?" he looked at it, called some woman, and POOF, He is now 6th, and 50 bucks richer.

Scott tells me there were a few trinkets left that Steve didn't get.

All the other prizes went to co-workers who purchased tickets from me but werent at the weigh in.

Congrats Wade and partner. Right place at the right time I guess. We were in the wrong place all the time I guess. confused.gif

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
