motor restriction?

3 posts in this topic

if a lake has say an electric motor only restriction, is it ok to go out and only use your trolling motor even if you have another motor on and youre not using it?

i do beleve you can have the motor on the boat but it has to be propped up out of the water and if you use it even if you have to and dnr gets wind of it you will be fined

I live in EP and a couple of lakes here have similar restrictions. These restrictions are put into place and enforced by the city not the DNR. I called and spoke with a city official asking them the same question you are asking. They said it is fine as long as you have the other motors up and out of the water.

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
