"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!

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff
