I have a stove/oven in my house, CO's have never said a word, don't know what the difference would be. I don't know for sure, but I thought they made it legal to clean and eat fish on the ice this year.

My only thought would be they are trying to prevent people from dumping the coals on the ice. I've been out there before and seen trash like that...which is disheartening. I haven't heard any new rules about this though.

I've not heard anything ,but he was asking tonight.

I'm looking for laws.He has a gas grill to do steaks.

He was told last year he was asking for trouble by the locals.

Sure they were'nt 'terrorists' posing as locals? !!

Never heard of such and I've been around a while. I think I've even been checked by warden on 16mile while the grill was going once too just a coupla years back!

Half the big perms on the pond are probably equiped with a grill of some type, at least the local huts!!

Going up to LOW for the first time this winter...can anyone confirm if cleaning legal fish and frying them up for a meal one night is legal? thanks!

O.K. I guess I jumped the gun. I just talked to the DNR and they said it was legal to clean and eat fish on a lake that has no slot limit. So L.O.W. is not legal yet. The lady I talked to said that this was going to change, but she did not know exactly when. She said there would be a bullitin put out when this happens, so hopefully it will happen yet this season. Sorry for getting your hopes up, I know mine were. We always spend at least 2 days sometimes 3 in my sleeper, it sure would be nice to eat a days catch while we are there.

I just finished listening to Curts radio program and the CO that he had as a guest definitley said YOU CAN clean and eat walleys as well as sauger on LOW. They are looking for the remains to be kept intact however for measurement purposes. LOW has a slot limit and this practice is now legal. Good luck and hang on. Bill

OK. The CO on the show had been to the seminar on the

new rules and regs for this season. If they are not

in effect yet, they will be soon. Sorry for any confusion

but nobody is out in sleeper houses yet. It is set to

start by the time we need it.

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
