Hmong Fisherman? I am!

109 posts in this topic

I'm proud to be a Law-obiding Hmong Fisherman in Minnesota. I love fishing. Fellow FM'ers who are hmong, we can come together and combat illegal harvesting. It's a group effort, but when we all come together, things get done. Im simply suggesting a list of things we can say that will not offend anyone. Lets come together fellow Hmong Fisherman! Thanks.

That's great! Now let's educate the Hmong who fish along Vadnais Lake along the water service road (between the West and East Lakes) to stop making fires to cook their fish by the waters edge. I can't understand it. My dad and I called the DNR on that one.

Hey? What happened to the "Stupid Poachers" thread?

I think it should have been locked not deleted. We MUST have dialog and openness about these issues.

The Turn in Poachers thread was moved to the outdoor discussion fourm... its still there, but didn't belong here anymore.

Sly- I didn't deleate it.. just moved it. I thought for the most part people were doing a good job staying somewhat respectfull. I just didn't think it has as much to do with Metro fishing and thought more people could weigh in on the subject if it was in the outdoor discussion fourm...

I think it all comes down to education and somewhat of a culture change. I have had a few run-ins with unethical behavior, with Hmong and other races alike. Education and accountability are the two biggest things. I was running around Calhoun Saturday and saw a gentleman throwing a bucktail......for Crappies??? I kindly stated to him that Muskie season is not open for some time now and that he could be fined and have his fishing privileges taken away. He complied and stopped fishing. He had no idea that he couldn't fish for just any species and to be completely honest I don't think he knew what that lure was for. This gentelman could bairly speak english, and most likely couldn't read the regulations book. Personally I think the DNR should either print or make a translated version available online because this is such a problem in our state. Just an idea.

Ill tell you this, If we were both fishing and saw some illegal activity, Id call TIP. He would call TIP, talk to the guy, remind him of the rules, whip out the Regulations booklet, check his bucket etc. He's more honest than most people I encounter, put it that way.

We hardly eat fish. If my parents want some fish, we'll keep a couple for them. If not, we're looking for trophies for the wall or for pictures. CPR.

Funny! I think we everyone can play a part on "teaching" EVERYONE....regardless of race, color, shoes, socks. We all love fishing. What I see that really seperates everyone is when people prejudge others and look down upon them. Please, don't blame another person of the same race for someone else's stupidity. I see it all the time and I've gone through similar things. Just a few words to think about.

Other then that...I will always try to educate everyone I see "first" before I make a report. There is a thin line between ignorance and stupidity. wink.gif Play by the rules or pay the fines...they'll learn one day. tongue.gif

I agree Katman, I coudn't have said it better. I know of 3 older gentleman who completely overharvested WBL in the past 4 years from a boat. I believe they were Finnish, Norwegian, and I believe one was of German decent. They would go out 4 to 6 times a week and pull out their limit plus some everytime , during the spawn.

Ok, then why did you, not me, say he will not fish with you out of fear of you, calling TIP on him ?

Read his former post boys, don't blame me for asking about what he posted.

I simply asked if what your brother posted about you was true.

You have misinterpreted what I asked.

Poaching is not something to be lied about, even as a joke on these forums, and will not likley further the Hmong cause.

Anyway, nuff said. I hope everyone on these forums is as honest as they purport to be. blush.gif

It was a little laughter to ease the tension. For the record: No, It is not true. We apologize if it has offended you in any way Moby Richard. I am sorry if I have caused you any emotional, physical or physchological harm in any way at all. If there is anything that I can do to ease this transition, please feel free to reply to this post. If not, I assume that all is dandy. HAPPY FISHING FOLKS! " Goooooone fiiiishing....with BILL DANCE TOOOOOOODAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!"

Hey magic, I got your point right away, and I heckle my brother just the same! Good stuff.

And good stuff on your effort to educate all anglers. I used to fish Phalen and those lakes a lot, and there were some issues on both sides of the fence that some understanding could have helped.

I now see Hmong families fishing year after year fishing Bald Eagle, and we have good time chatting and watching bobbers go under. I wish I could get my wife out fishing as much as I see their wives out with them smile.gif errr, maybe I am the lucky one wink.gif

Happy Fishing indeed!

      Well its been a interesting few days to say the least. The main thing were all the fishermen and customers were safe as well as the houses The standing water on the lake started to find more areas to drain causing a fishing frenzy for Marty and his wife shelly Monday night. The mother load swam right under marty and shell and boy did they have fun. They caught more then a few elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappies. Mean while Dave and his crew stood outside and managed to land 11 yes 11 elusive upper red lake crappies fishing in the rain. They also did real well on the walleye fishing with Kyle landing his first ever walleye. Tuesday morning I was off to the dentist early then arrived back home to say good by to marty and shell. I was going crazy to get back on the lake and see what the conditions were like. Closer to shore and most of the water has had drained down the cracks and holes. The biggest hole I have found so far   was where old minnesota was and is about 20 inches wide. Driving out to Montana and Florida I stayed to the right of the road to conserve the road. I have a hard time driving by liter so a couple stops were made . I few wood blocks, a couple pop cans, a beer bottle. All and all not to bad as I have seen a lot worse over the years. Buddy Hillmens bridge is in good shape. Getting the skid houses over the pressure ridge is still possible and Buddy has started bringing some of his customers house's home as well as one or two of his own. He has a special way of towing them over and was nice enough to call me when they were in the process of bringing one across so I could observe there system compared to how I got old Minnesota and north Dakota across two weeks ago. Man did that way work well as I pulled  a old house from the past over with his system with no problems.  Trying to bring north Dakota and old Minnesota back out may not be a option though . Every year I chase the mother load of the elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie but this year I may have to get montana and florida back over the pressure ridge rather then taking the whole fleet back out there. Common sense needs to prevail on this decision . I was planning on spending some quality time napping and fishing in old Minnesota but time and mother nature will tell how it pans out. Jake and his crew are still planning on coming in march and I see no reason we will have any problems looking for the mother load as there's still plenty of ice out there. Out where montana and florida are there's still some standing water but nothing like it was on Tuesday. With the cold temps coming back every thing should tighten back up in the next day or two. I have a big crew with my son John coming today for the final weekend of game fish season. They have florida, montana and North Carolina plus the cabin. I was in the process of hauling north Carolina out there yesterday when I remembered Jeff mentioned the ceiling fan was loose . I stopped to check it out and its hanging by one wire? For some reason I have 4 screw drivers in my tool box and not one of them is a phillip's so I had to leave the house where it was  un tell I can get out there this morning and secure it. As The temps drop we should be in good shape for the final weekend. Buddy hillmens road withstood what mother nature had to offer . The good news is the red baron is repaired. Its just 50 miles away and I will not be able to go pick it up un tell some time  tomorrow.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included
