I was out for a couple hours last Saturday, but didn't have much luck either. I did see a good amount of action on the Vexilar with a lot of lookers, but nothing wanted to bite? I put the camera down, but couldn't see what they were...

I was fishing in about 8ft of water on the edge of a weed line...I wanted to go to another spot, but it was too hard pulling my house through the snow, so I fished closer to the 8th street landing.

I might try again this weekend, we'll see. I'll post how I did if I get out...gotta get the snowmobile going first though I think.

Good luck, talk to ya later.

I've been catching a fair amount of small walleye, with the occasional northern thrown in for good measure. Nothing huge, actully they are a little too small to keep for eating, but the prospects for the river are definatly looking up.........i think i'm going to try back behide that park by little john court road......8th street is filling up already.......

It's good to hear your getting some action...small fish are still fish and fun to catch, right?

I caught a lot of those small Walleye this past summer on the river. They averaged between 9" and 12", a little small yet to keep, but yes it's looking pretty good for future fishing... There must have been a good hatch one year, and they will be big enough to keep soon.

I'm not positive, but I would say it's likely the fish I had on my Vexilar are those same wee little fish. I had some fairly big baits on for those smaller fish to take? I usually catch some Perch too through the ice, so who knows for sure what they were.

As far as the 8th street location...it gets a bit too busy for me, I like to fish away from the crowds if I can. One thing that's amazing is just how many people ice fish on the river. All summer long there are only a few people who fish the river on a regular basis, but when it freezes it becomes a circus and it's getting worse every year. I guess I don't really care too much, just as long as they respect other peoples space and mine.

I'll talk to you guys later...

      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.
