"I need some help guys"

4 posts in this topic

I recently 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 honest guys will be honest and not-so-honest guys will not be. The only thing I see possibly happening is the not-so-honest guys will eat their fish, hide their bones, and will never get caught - thus taking extra fish. The rule is you can eat the fish but they still count against your daily limit. I think its kindof nice that you can do it, as long as the DNR can ask to see the bones and the fish you still have not fileted ti ensure you are still legal.

I will Agree with Pimp, But i also think that the not so honest guys have been doing this for years if not all their lives. I really think that it is a great idea, i mean there is nothing better than fresh fish and how hard is to keep your bones back guts outside on the ice? But of course you are going to have that one bad egg who is going to abuse the priviledge! I guess that i am all for it and i hope that you get an A+ in english because I never did!!!

I think with the huge increase in luxury permanent houses with built in stoves, a lot more people will by frying fish in the house. Many times when I only catch one or two I'll let them go because it's not enough for a meal. I guess for a con more people might fry fish so it could impact the population. I also don't really like it when people throw fish on the ice like burbot. I think it would be an eyesore to see a bunch of walleye skins all over the place and the crow that stick around to feed on them. I hope that fishermen clean up after themselves. On the plus side fresh fish tastes great and as long as the daily limits are followed it really shouldn't matter when they get eaten!

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
