"I need some help guys"

9 posts in this topic

I resently started a project for an english class and was just wondering/ need aome opions on this topic:

"What do you all think about the new regulation on cleaning fish in your fish house on special regulation lake?"

thanks in advance for your opion.... both sides would be great, because it is an open ended research paper.

I think that a few 20-24 inch fish might touch a knife. Especially with all the snow and a nice hole to stick the guts down. I would hate to see it but you know it would happen.

I think that most of the people that will do this will do it with or without this law. It will be nice to be able to fry up a fish while fishing. A legal fish of course. If a person is honest they are honest if not they are not. I don't think this law changes a thing as to how many illigal fish will be taken but it will add to the expirience for decent honest people.

I say let people clean fish on the ice, but require them to keep the skins on hand if a warden should request them. I know some dishonest people will just discard of the guts and skeletal remains to hide their crime, but they will do it anyway if they have their mind set on harvesting illegal fish, so why not let the honest people clean fish on the ice?? If you get caught with fish fillets on the ice, you should just have to present the skins to a warden upon request so he can verify they were of legal size. Just my opinion.

I would agree with you on that googleye. If you have nothing to hide there should be no problem with providing the remains to prove the length. I would error on the safe side with keeping one to cook.

I agree let people be honest keep remains to prove. Most resorts close there fish cleaning shacks during the winter so where are we going to clean fish. In the house!

Have to agree...

Laws are for the honest people anyway...

If someone is going to harvest an illegal fish, they will do it with or with out a "Law" or "Regulation".

So if your out for the weekend and you want to eat your catch, just save the remains until you get to shore.

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
