baiting

A conservation officer escorted 2 people out the woods in the buffalo area on Sat. Baiting was the issue. If this is true, Thank you to however gave the TIP. Don't know if they were related to the Schmidt twins, but it was there property.

DNR was using aerial surveilance and GPS prior to the season...so it could have been something spotted from the air that tipped them off.

Way to go DNR! I am so sick and tired of the (Contact Us Please) that think they can bait deer and get away with it. I would like to see the penalties increase, more equipment taken, as well as thier priveleges removed for a couple of years. Baiting is flat out unethical and other hunters should be outraged at guys doing this.

I was biking a year ago on a bike trail and noticed red dots in the woods. I took a close look (yes, I tresspassed) and found a deer stand with apples tied with string all around the stand and a deer block.

I called TIP.

Does baiting make hunting more fun. To me hunting is thrilling because you don't bait and It's more difficult that way. If you want to shoot baited animals you should just as well go shoot cows in a fenced field eating at a corn trough. Of course I'm kidding to make a point. Besides you'd be the target for the Farmer if you we're doing that.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.
