Gonna be up this week during the MEA break to take my 10 yr old out fishing. Wondering what the eye's might me bitin', depths, etc.. You don't need to give me your secret spot, just a little direction for bait. I'll find out if your lyin to me because I'll get a report from Bluewater too cool.gif Thanks for the help. I've never fished in the fall and am afraid of the cold winds and my son wanting to quit early.

Well you should do good but beware the duck hunters...

I would start at the north end hump work your way around the from 15'-20' they should be there.

We netted a 19 and 24 pound Muskie last MEA, other than those two not much action but lots of guys were bringing in fish. That was then though. Good luck, have a feeling we'll try it again this weekend. Bundle Up!

Thanks for reminder on the duck hunters. I suppose wind will play a factor in where I go. Any advice on color? Minnow type?

Here's another question, what's with the minnows in a bag at the bait stores. I can't remember the name, but I think they have "grub" in the name. I look at them, but wonder why you wouldn't just use the real deal? Any insight would be appreciated.

15' - 20' is probably the ticket, but don't be afraid to go a little deeper or shallower regardless of the light and time of day. Found a nice school of them out their last fall in the shallows and a few times they were fairly deep. If it's not too windy, you may see a 16' johnboat out there getting pulled around by a fat creek chub.

kwiggy, don't know if you're a hunter, but you could do well walking together in the woods looking for grouse. If he's ten he's two years away from firearms safety, what a great way to get him excited to hunt! Plntagenet has some good grouse land around it; a friend of mine did really well a week ago.

      I got a good idea........maybe have a couple more beers and not worry so much about your neighbors. In fact invite them over for a dinner and a beer and discuss your issues...that's how my neighborhood settles issues.  Man to man...works out pretty good....

      Send him some literature on CWD. Like FishingCT mentioned, disease spreads at common gathering points where deer may rub noses. CWD, for example, spreads through a prion or protein that can spread this way.  This spread of disease is an example of why disease in raised herds is such a big deal.

      Feeding deer, especially in the winter, is a really good way to spread disease. Maybe you won't have to worry about them as much next winter after all

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.
