Presidential Mallard

2 posts in this topic

From the Sunday Telegraph

"SECURITY is tight in front of the White House for a new resident - a duck sitting on nine eggs she laid at the foot of a sapling last week.

The mallard hen chose for her nest a heap of fresh mulch on the footpath outside the heavily guarded entrance of the Treasury Department, next door to the presidential residence.

Secret service officers have put up metal stanchions around the tree to shield the incubating bird from passers-by.

The fowl's reputation has grown, and it was featured on a national morning television show on Friday.

Treasury staff have dubbed the bird "T-bill", "Duck Cheney" and "Quacks Reform", Treasury spokesman Rob Nichols said.

The duck has been provided with a water bowl and seems oblivious to all the attention.

The eggs are expected to hatch the last week of April, at which time the duck will be moved nearer water."

      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.
