Big Northern

If I see one more picture of a guy holding a trophy Northern, caught out of Silver Creek I'm gonna puke. Don't get me wrong I'm happy he caught the fish but,THROW IT BACK!I know its a fish of a lifetime but have a camera or just measure it and you can get a replica made that looks exactly like your fish.

You know every time the P.B. publishes a picture like this there is gonna be 50 guys with big sucker minnows and tip-ups going after their trophy.Guys this is a small pond its not Lake Mille Lacs,it needs to be a catch and release only for the Northerns.Its time the DNR puts some lower limits on the area reservoirs so the bigger fish can be preserved

I'm not sure what you are referencing. I gather someone caught a northern out of that little pond and the paper published a picture?

Thursday's Post Bulliten "Catch of the week" has a picture of a guy with a 20# Northern taken from Silver Creek Reservoir.Hopefully, the guy released it after the picture.

why are you so quick to jump on the guys back for keeping a trophy pike? if the guy is not breaking the law then why not be happy for him. who knows he may have been fishing for 40 years and finially just got the one for the wall. i have not read the story or seen the pics but, for every trophy took out i would like to believe there are many more released.

Every time I hear someone say the words "Silver Creek" I think I'm gonna puke.

I actually caught a nice one yesterday on a little less controversial body of water. Believe it or not I was actually jigging for pike when I got her. Hopefully Tyler will be able to post it for me.

I agree with Res Dawg that there are going to have to be limitations on what is kept out there. I personally haven't fished there myself but once all the controvesy settles down it would be a nice place to go. I just hope all the decent size fish haven't been fished out by then like Kalmer has.

So I have a better understanding of this post. Can somebody explain to me what all the controversy is and also where Silver Creek is? ? ? Thanks guys

Nice fish Crickshop! I love seeing pictures of people holding up a big fish and its even better if they release it. The picture in the PB wouldn't bother me so much if it had been caught in a bigger lake but, our little ponds around here can only hold so many of the bigger preditor fish.once they're gone all you will end up with is a bunch of 5" sunnies and 6" perch.

A couple weeks ago I was with my brother when he picked up his replica of a 14 3/4" perch it looks every bit as good as the real thing and will last longer.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Hey Matti, Fess up. Who actually caught that one for you? Ha ha!!

You'll have to come down to Winona some time yet this year. Fishing has been so-so but you know the beer is always good.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
