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!

      Agreed, 25 does seem big for a 12' boat

      Make sure you take a couple minutes and look for the rating plate in that boat, if it exists it should be back on or near the transom somewhere. I'd be very careful about hanging a 25 HP motor on a 12 foot boat, as it may not be rated for 25 HP. Some 12's are different than others, more depth, more beam, etc. so the motor ratings can vary. Proceed with caution.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.
