Fishing: print or the web?

Recommended Posts

I have one more question for everyone:

Where are you finding QUALITY information about fishing techniques, news and products - fishing forum websites (like FM) or print (In-Fish, Outdoor News)?

I use the web for doing my main research on different lakes and I try to get out to at least one a year of the seminars put out by the FM pro staff for species information.

The web narrows down my lakes and what lures ect. but the mags. give me a new way of fishing.

I find the print media or my local news gives me more and better info on fishing. Some times fisherman can get tight lippd about whats working for them.

Nothing beats Bluewater Bait though. like the old general store might say if they dont have it you dont need it. As far as fishing info goes. and bait and tackle and pop.

Mostly on print.

Techniques are more detailed and technical. Products are promoted on EVERY page in magazines, even within the articles themselves. A lot of news is best in print, and due to forum policies, a lot cannot be discussed because it gets opinionated and political and gets deleted right away.

However, people spill their guts on the internet. Unfortunatly, a lot of posts tell you exactly what, when, where and how. Which in the end is all people need, and its free to boot! A sad reality IMO

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.
