Briggs chain

1 post in this topic

We went out to Briggs on Thurs. Had fun with new aquaview. Arrived around 1pm, no bites or fish on the screen. About 4p big pike starts messing with the blue gill camara. What a sight, it seemed more interrested in the camara than my spoon. I finally got it to hit the spoon but I think I was to amazed at seeing the fish hit my lure I forgot to set the hook. Anyway he hung around for a few minutes then left. 10 minutes later my bobber goes down, set the hook start reeling. I get to the bobber, stop reeling put the pole down to start pulling with my hands, but forget to keep tension on line, lose another one. Darn, only slip bobbers from now on. So I turn the camara to the line with the bobber (had camara on spoon) and see 3 walleyes hanging around. What an amazing thing to see, the camara will come with everytime out.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
