yes, it does happen, and with the internet...

MORE THAN EVER.

People don't understand what a site like this is capable of doing to a resource if people aren't kept in check.

Weird thing is though I'm just about the only one saying anything when someone makes a bonehead post. Well, me and Flowage Tamer, but he is my bro.

WHERE ARE MY BRUTHAS FROM OTHER MUTHAS!?

There are a lot of good posters on here with decent ethics and good commonsense. But be careful what you say on here, and also be careful with those fish pictures. Backgrounds don't ever lie.

I thought this was a forum to discuss what's working and what's not and where the fish are biting. Am I wrong? If you don't want to give out info on where the fish are biting, then don't. But you can't have a forum and expect guys to not post what's been working, and you can't expect guys to stop asking where the fish are biting.

Yes you do need to be careful what you share. You won't see me sharing info on the smaller more fagile lakes in the area. They just can't handle the pressure. But the larger areas lakes and rivers which draw a lot of folks anyways I will mention the water names and genreal pattern info. Never specific approach or location.

Heck,

Even if I did share specific spots and approaches most folks wouldn't believe me anyways. wink.gif

Now what really irratates me is all the talk about how bad our lakes are around St Cloud.

Contrary to popular befief we have many excellent lakes and rivers within 30 minutes of St Cloud that have very nice fish. I keep hearing about all the stunted fish. Well if you call 26-31" walleyes, 8"+ gills and 12" crappies stunted then you're right. If you're catching the little ones then it's time to move.

Now lets talk fishing.

Good Luck everyone and be safe!

ive watched this forum for a few days with interset. i know people flock to lakes they hear fish are biting, it is annoying. i like doing my own thing. go to a lake find my own spot and let everyone else think that i know what im doing. most times i fool them.

Here's an idea...decoy posts grin.gif

If people are going to follow the hot tips than why not give them some "hot" tips to follow!

I heard the fish were biting on Lake George, anyone else?

Yeah, not a bad plan. Eventually internet scouters would get sick of running around like (Contact Us Please) to phantom spots and would be forced to quit the sport or do their own homework....what an idea!

Lake George is always a solid mid-winter location for jumbo perch....as is the drainage pond off division near Taco Bell and Sam's Club(there is alot of stucture in that pond--aka garabage).

Alright guys I know you guys are kidding around, (well I think so anyways), but the idea of the forum is to provide good information. Not misinformation.

Just be careful with what you post. By the same token...if you got out on a small lake and fish the same spot for 3 days straight and people can see you there you will have company. It's just the way it is.

Lets stop beating this dead horse. The point has been made and lets share some good fishing info without giving up the spots. Information about general location and presentation is good stuff to get folks started.

Good Luck and Be Safe!

      Nice gill Rick

      HunterFisher Don't rule out trying that lake again. If theres a lot of wood in the water those schools could, be pinned down on other trees than you were fishing. Trust me I have a lake near Glenwood i fish that has a bunch of tress scattered throughout the lake. It took me numerous times fishing it to figure out patterns on that lake. But once i found them well worth it!  I have found lakes with a lot of submerged trees or wood usally hold some real good panfish, . They have plenty of places to hide from predators and anglers through out the seasons.

      See you tomorrow Jeff we'll dial them in 
    • Borch
      Keep checking in here for any updates.  There's a very good chance that the location may change a bit as there have not been a lot of catfish at the methhole area.  Prefishing in the next day or so will help us pin down a location.  I will post any changes here.
    • Borch
      A lake like that with no real hole or structure lends itself to roaming fish.  If there is a defined weededge that will be your structure.  Electronics are not going to show you much until the fish is on your bait.  Drill a lot of holes and move around until you catch fish. 
    • HunterFisher11
      Hay thanks for your input.... Just got home and got skunked!!!!! But that is ok at least now I know to take it off my list of lakes to fish in the winter, but will be back on it come spring and early summer...
    • JerkinLips
      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.
    • JerkinLips
      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.
