Opener - what the WI warden said

10 posts in this topic

I simply called the warden from the Baldwin Office and he said - "WI is going to honor MN opener", and that I as a WI resident (with a valid license) could fish the opener and NOT be ticketed. He also said that the "MN DNR and WI DNR are on the same page". So I'm fishing as I should be!

boy it sure would have been nice down there with out any green or gold packer fans, but then who would chase trophy sheephead. and the mooneye population would go unchecked and ruin the entire ecosystem, not to mention how mudpuppies and american eel would increase without you guys around to harvest them.

TRZ,

Are you having ice fishing withdrawls?

You can pick on the Packer fans as I'm a Vikes guy, but don't pick on the American eel they migrate all they way from the Gulf of Mexico!

i do miss the ice, i checked my journal and i got out over 60 times this winter. i can't wait for that multi species fun on the opener, i'm sure i'll get my fill of eyes and then hit the sunnies and crappies. probably get some pike too, last year on the opener i got 5, the most i have ever got in one trip. and trophy sheephead are always on the brain. hopefully there won't be too many weekend warroirs around to make things difficult.

      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.
