season over

5 posts in this topic

Went to Bloody today and couldn't even get on the lake. ice was about 10-15' from the shore. Stopped at Bean and Double on the way home and found the same.

I hope this message saves someone else from driving 55 miles one way. One guy even had his boat along the edge of the water. I should have brought my casting rods.

It saddens me to say it, but I feel my ice season is over also. However, it really cheers me up to say I dug out my boat last night and after this weekend it will have a brand spankin new deck on it!!!!!! Hopefully the wiring problems will be fixed, new battery, a windshield, and most importantly......a new cup holder.

      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.
