Hey gr, The scout has been working wonders. Once I got a little system going I could move and set up in just seconds. What are you fishin in nowadays?
The bite has been good out there. It helps a load to move around a lot out there. I've found out that moving 10 feet will make the difference between a limit and no fish at all. There are some pigs out there also.

Lately I've been fishin the deeper water cause the crappies are bitin well. A few days back though, if you fish right before the hole on the breakline in around 30-32 ft., you'll catch crappies and 'eyes together. How'd you do out there in the mornin like that? good fishin'

I wasn't out there Saturday mornin, I'm yet to try the mornin bite out there this year. Has done well for me in year's past. My buddies were out there tonight and said it had slowed down some. I haven't been out for a couple nights, I'm in the process of building a big permanant also. I'm probably gonna start hitting some other lakes now that we're getting some good ice.

      Just a heads up to all.  Someone has been cutting off the Catalytic convertors on vehicles at the landings on Island Lake Reservoir.  Trucks are targeted do to the clearance and ease to get under.  They hit several vehicles on Friday morning and were trying to sell the parts at a local scrap yard by 11:30am the same day.  It cost me over $500.00 to replace this weekend.  Police where notified.

      Thank you for your opinion. I respectfully disagree with just standing by, as multiple 3lbs+ bass were shown to me in a livewell this morning coming off of a 300acre lake. Again i completely realize this is a legal choice to make, and at times selective harvest is necessary for maintaining a healthy ecosystem. Where I live in Minnesota, bass are plentiful, but fish of that calliber and bigger are not growing on trees and it takes multiple years to get to maturity. As aforementioned, i am serious about the sport aspect of bass fishing and hate to think of the idea of 10+ yr old fish being taken from lakes of such small size especially. I have personally seen the possibilities catch and release offers as myself and a buddy have caught the same 4lb fish with distinct bird/pike bite marks on 3 separate occasions just this spring/summer alone.  Again i do not mean to shame these people for being proud of catching quality fish, just want to find the best way to try to shape their thinking to take a more conservationally responsible approach to fish harvest choices. I appreciate any help i can get

      They split FM and HSO.   Turned out to be a bad decision in my opinion.   
    • delcecchi
      If I were you I would mind my own business.  Harvesting bass instead of just annoying them is perfectly legal.    You could always write a strongly worded letter to the DNR and your state legislators suggesting special regulations on those lakes that concern you or even a statewide change if you really feel that it is a problem.

      I have 2 large anchors so movement is not a problem as long as the wind is not too heavy which causes a little rocking.    The screen was as detailed as it is in winter.    As far as fishing went.    I was marking a lot of fish but most were cats.   I only marked a couple of possible walleyes but no takers, but in fairness I was only testing and was not in my best spot and was only there about 20 minutes.    Have to try again later in some of my winter hot spots.   Don

      That’s what I’m wondering too!  Mostly how well you can actually keep your bait in your ducer cone.  For a pontoon fisher I can see some pretty cool positives for the setup!

      Now I've seen it all!  😁 So how'd it go?
    • rodbender27
      Looking for advice on how to approach/converse with those who choose to keep bass. I have worked at public boat accesses around the metro for a few years now and see anglers taking bass home with them more often than I would care to see. As an avid bass fisherman, I have bias toward complete catch and release on all bass that are caught, however i understand that it is completely legal to harvest bass as long as one is complying with harvesting laws. The big problem for me persoany is when i see people keeping the totally wrong size fish (15"+) if you were to want to keep some.  I have struggled in how to go about trying to make people think twice about choosing to keep bass (or at least the larger fish) without making it awkward or seeming like i am shaming them. Would like any input on how I could go about conversing with these people. Any personal accounts would be great, thanks

      I have heard the same reports. Good to hear that the walleyes on the West end may be starting to recover! Cliff
