Thats a lot of yotes.

I see nothing wrong with posting pics of legally and ethically trapped animals. Congratulations on the catch and thank you for taking a few of those fawn eaters.

I can't seem to trap one. I've caught one coyote and fox in a cable restraint but none in a trap. I used speed dip on them originally and two years ago I stripped them down and dipped in formula one.

I've had them step close to the pan on numerous occasions but never on the pan. I don't know if they're smelling the dip or not. I'll have to strip them down agian and have a buddy show me how to dip in wax. Not sure what else to try.

Great pics and nice looking yotes.

Grayfox if you get the trapping down the yote population will be in severe trouble grin

BTW The gray fox is coming along great and its a big one compared to the forms they sell for bodys

Great pics and great topic! Nothing like seeing a critter in a trap and knowing you outsmarted them!

GF, I see, I know they can be a bit of a challenge to figure out how to trap, I have not personally done it, so I cannot speak much about it. I know a couple guys that do though, and they say once you catch one in a spot, that you are a lot more likely to catch more... not sure how true it is. I like seeing the critters alive... gives a better perspective of how they look on the paw.

      I applied to be on the committee, denied.  I pretty much understand and agree with all comments in this post, however I would add the topic of slots.   1 - I believe the strategy behind the protective slot is a good thing for reproduction and growth of trophy sized fish. 2 - I believe there is a large natural imbalance of slot fish, size-wise, more of the slots than typical in nature. 3 - i believe this imbalance leads to depredation - large ones eating small ones.   The DNR and other "experts" claim walleye do not do this.  i have personally seen 10 inch eyes in the stomachs of 18s.  A 16 inch eye in a 30.  Not many of the fish in the slot and above are being cut open, so it is really tough to know exactly what is going on, but it sure is possible.   I do not have a recommendation on how to solve this.  Around 2000, fish over 19.5 were protected, allowing one over to be kept.  That would seem to help control the number of slots.  Again, I do not have a recommendation. Also, folks fishing multiple days, claiming a limit each day seems fishy, as it is nearly impossible to eat 4 fish each day.....  And if you claim have a fish meal the night before departing and you have a limit to travel with, you were over the limit.

      Fished Fri, Sat, and Sun with FIL, BIL, and the Mrs.  Fri was at large, deep basin reef.  Pulled up, anchored with a good bite.  Nothing fast and furious, but enough to keep us busy and interested.  Then the wind went flat.  Our bite went with it so we began pulling spinners, finding areas with biting fish.  The bugs were a moderate bother.  Ended with 8 larger eyes and 4 slot fish.   Sat was up to the south shore of the Angle.  Started off in 30' pulling spinners into 5', but never got past 27' as the bite was good.  Spent about a hour with this bite, then proceeded to join the 60 or so boats off Stoney.  We trolled through the village, picking up fish every 5 minutes or so.  Ended early at 2pm due to threatening skies that never produced and unbearable bugs.  Ended with another 8 eyes and 3 slot fish. Sun, needing suager, we fished in nearby reef that we heard had sauger.  Really no bugs to speak of due to the nice breeze.  Found our sauger, but more remarkable was the slot fish bite.  Ended just short of 20.  FIL was on fire.  He had nearly half of the boat's slots.  He went 28, 20, 25, 26.5, 27, 24, 27, and 24.  Here is the 28 with a smile.

      I agree with too many small fish, the issue is the deep water winter fishing.  This would result in more fish being wasted, as people would shove them under the ice rather than being fined.

      you are correct got a solid answer from champion on that; i do have an email sent out about the thermostat on those coleman ac units as they ahve a catolog selling them, just couldnt find out if it was compatible with our units

      PSU, If that’s the cause, that’s a serious problem! Has anyone seen evidence of spiny waterfleas this spring? RLG
    • PSU
      Yesterday was the first time I have noticed all of the dead smaller minnows floating around in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. Friend of mine who knows the lake as well as anyone indicated it may be perch minnows choking on spiny water fleas. If so, that's a bit disconcerting.....Can anyone confirm? Slow for me mid to late afternoon yesterday in the area fishing for walleyes..
