Fishing etiquette now days!

6 posts in this topic

My friends and I have a house out on a local lake and had been doing quite well untill we got invaded upon. I mean we put the time in and found fish and put our permanent there. Now in the last two days we have had people litterally on top of us almost driving over our tip-ups and tonight had a guy set up ten feet from us. I mean what the heck there is a whole lake!!! I am at about ends wits and I am a pretty paitient person, but am about to loose my cool.. Is it just me or do most of you feel like it is just respect to give others some space when a lake isn't crouded? Then the jerk leaves his empty propane tanks!! So if you with the blue F-150 and fourwheeler sees this your welcome I picked them up. Anyways hopefully some people see this and think about how they are conducting themselves out there...

It happends everywhere, the people out there that dont have the time to find thier own spots but still fancy them selves a fisherman...doubtfull. not to mention 10 feet from you, if i was you you should have went and drilled a few more holes around him... ya know 10 ft or so. no need for me to rant and rave and add fuel to the fire but ya. pride yourself on patience like all fisherman do.

I feel your pain. We have had people set portables leaning up against our permenant. It drives me nuts. A whole lake and they have to be withing inches of you. Anyway, thanks for picking up their trash. It's guys like you that help to keep the lakes clean for everyone to enjoy.

Very good points, My Brothers.

Some guys have wax worms for brains. They just don;t get it. Leaving trash on the ice -- that is about as stupid as it gets. Do they think there is a little trash fairy come and pick it up?

Or, more than likely, they are expecting their MOM to come out on the ice and pick up for them.

Nice.

As for the crowding -- I don't agree with that, but it is a part of fishing. People should have more respect for others, but a few of them don't.

Hang in there.

I don't think there is anything wrong with telling these Jokers that they are not cool or funny. Might not help, but you got it off your chest.

BTW -- if that does not work, you can always hire DaHitman! wink.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifcool.gif

Sorry fellas but it's going to get worse. The population is growing and there just isn't enough lakes. The days of fishing a lake by yourself are limited if not over. The internet has also fueled the fire. Something that took us many hours and years to figure out is now a click away. Crowding is now a real issue to the fishing community.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.
