yes, it does happen, and with the internet...

MORE THAN EVER.

People don't understand what a site like this is capable of doing to a resource if people aren't kept in check.

Weird thing is though I'm just about the only one saying anything when someone makes a bonehead post. Well, me and Flowage Tamer, but he is my bro.

WHERE ARE MY BRUTHAS FROM OTHER MUTHAS!?

There are a lot of good posters on here with decent ethics and good commonsense. But be careful what you say on here, and also be careful with those fish pictures. Backgrounds don't ever lie.

I thought this was a forum to discuss what's working and what's not and where the fish are biting. Am I wrong? If you don't want to give out info on where the fish are biting, then don't. But you can't have a forum and expect guys to not post what's been working, and you can't expect guys to stop asking where the fish are biting.

Yes you do need to be careful what you share. You won't see me sharing info on the smaller more fagile lakes in the area. They just can't handle the pressure. But the larger areas lakes and rivers which draw a lot of folks anyways I will mention the water names and genreal pattern info. Never specific approach or location.

Heck,

Even if I did share specific spots and approaches most folks wouldn't believe me anyways. wink.gif

Now what really irratates me is all the talk about how bad our lakes are around St Cloud.

Contrary to popular befief we have many excellent lakes and rivers within 30 minutes of St Cloud that have very nice fish. I keep hearing about all the stunted fish. Well if you call 26-31" walleyes, 8"+ gills and 12" crappies stunted then you're right. If you're catching the little ones then it's time to move.

Now lets talk fishing.

Good Luck everyone and be safe!

ive watched this forum for a few days with interset. i know people flock to lakes they hear fish are biting, it is annoying. i like doing my own thing. go to a lake find my own spot and let everyone else think that i know what im doing. most times i fool them.

Here's an idea...decoy posts grin.gif

If people are going to follow the hot tips than why not give them some "hot" tips to follow!

I heard the fish were biting on Lake George, anyone else?

Yeah, not a bad plan. Eventually internet scouters would get sick of running around like (Contact Us Please) to phantom spots and would be forced to quit the sport or do their own homework....what an idea!

Lake George is always a solid mid-winter location for jumbo perch....as is the drainage pond off division near Taco Bell and Sam's Club(there is alot of stucture in that pond--aka garabage).

Alright guys I know you guys are kidding around, (well I think so anyways), but the idea of the forum is to provide good information. Not misinformation.

Just be careful with what you post. By the same token...if you got out on a small lake and fish the same spot for 3 days straight and people can see you there you will have company. It's just the way it is.

Lets stop beating this dead horse. The point has been made and lets share some good fishing info without giving up the spots. Information about general location and presentation is good stuff to get folks started.

Good Luck and Be Safe!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
