Some People...


Recommended Posts

Was out fishing Buffalo on Thursday afternoon/evening. Saw some bozo out casting for bass in the shallows. I thought that was bad enough, but when I looked closer, he was fishing a second pole with a bobber. So fishing out of season, and fishing a second line. He was catching a bunch of fish on both lines too. Where are the CO's when you need one?

2 lines is illegal, however proving that an individual is targeting Bass is hard to do since the lures often work well for Pike as well.

Ahh well. Calling in is the right thing to do, however is also discouraging since they are always assigned elsewhere and not available, or simply say "thanks, we'll make a note of that"...

I'm not sure what he was casting as I was probably 75 yards away, but I was close enough to see him catch 4 or 5 bass in about a half hour, and not change his spot. He was also catching bass on the bobber setup on his other pole. I think some people either don't understand that it is still illegal even if you don't keep them, or just don't care.

I wasn't aware that the regs state that after catching 4 or 5 bass in a row you must move to a new area. Clearly he was breaking the law with two lines, but just because a person is fishing and catching bass doesn't mean they are "targeting" bass specifically and if the person would not mind catching a northern than they are within the law because they are legally fishing.

I have fished multiple area's since the openner this year where I have gotten bass and pike.

I think some are missing the point here! I wish you bass guys would keep your limit everytime out and deplete them. You can't keep them off your line which is why some probably target them is the skill level needed. Regardless if I saw anyone throwing a spinnerbait or pig/jig shallow I would not hesitate to make a call. Now two lines I would take the registration # off boat also and call!!!!!! It only hurts the true sportsperson when these people make there own rules. A LAW IS A LAW. Just my opinion

"Regardless if I saw anyone throwing a spinnerbait or pig/jig shallow I would not hesitate to make a call."

whoaaaa... slow down here fellas... the spinnerbait is an excellent pike bait... call the c.o. for fishing with a spinnerbait?? they will laugh in your face... spinnerbaits can also be downsized and used for crappie and walleye early in the year.... jig and pig is a great early season northern bait as well - especially this year as the northerns are still in on their beds...

take a chill pill on this topic... two lines is one thing, but catching and releasing bass out of season, who cares.... bottom line is they will do it one way or another if so inclined.. if they don't catch bass throwing spinnerbaits, they will catch them on crappie gear and deep hook them... it isn't something that is going to ruin a fishery, to me this topic is overly debated every year...

I honestly don't think you could get written up even if your pitching plastic during the two week period between opener and bass season and catching bass after bass... bottom line is walleye and pike will take these same baits and do... as long as they aren't keeping the bass, they can target them all they want as far as I'm concerned.. the bass fishery is strong as ever and this type of fishing out of season is nothing new...

      I’ve only seen teal one morning on the river.  Absolutely nothing in all the evenings I’ve been out.  Hard to get excited about hunting around home. 😒

      Public Administration in any sphere is a complicated process. In public service, there is a high level of responsibility. Every decision may affect large groups of people. There are many challenging points in Public Administration in public service. For example, public administration servants might face a lack of clarity or conflict regarding goals. Public Administration is difficult when there are numerous parties involved. Public Administration essay in public service should also be as objective as possible. There are voting sessions in various committees that help reach the objectiveness. However, if a suggestion gets 50% of votes among street-level bureaucrats, how should this be interpreted? Is a minor preponderance of votes enough to accept a proposal? The sphere implies a focus on societal needs. Sometimes the needs of the target population differ from the common societal ones. In such cases, public administration specialists need to find a balance between those interests. Bureaucrats at street level need to take into consideration many factors. In some cases, it might be challenging to figure out what to do. It is especially true if the decision regards a long-term perspective. Any public service organization has an established pattern for effective decision-making. Such models might involve many formalities. As a result, the process might be extremely time-consuming. https://proessays.net/essays/category/public-administration Related Resources: https://renkulab.io/gitlab/-/snippets/2871 https://www.ridesharetalks.com/?qa=356716/economics-essay-example https://gitlab.syntra-limburg.be/-/snippets/1240 https://forum.making-stories.com/d/296-government-essay-examples

      The essay for international exams such as SAT, GRE, GMAT, TOEFL and IELTS does not require literary talent, but rather a mastery of the technology of its writing.   Almost any international test for admission to a foreign university contains a section devoted to writing an essay. Is homework market legit? There is a general approach to essay writing for standardized tests, which includes five main steps.   DETERMINING THE TYPE OF ESSAY First, you need to determine what type of essay you are required to write. Standardized tests more often ask you to write a "problem essay," when you need to present an opinion on a given problem, and an "argumentative essay," when you need to analyze the arguments presented against or in defense of a particular point of view.   DETERMINING THE LENGTH OF AN ESSAY The length of the text affects the complexity of the essay, the number of paragraphs. A basic three-paragraph essay consists of 300-500 words. It is referred to as a "short" essay in standardized tests. A "long" essay is a minimum of 500-800 words and consists of five paragraphs.   Each paragraph should contain at least three sentences. It is important to understand that it is not the length of the typed text that is assessed, but the structure and content of the essay.   FORMULATION OF THE MAIN IDEA, THESIS AND ARGUMENTS The main idea is what the essay is about. The thesis is what the author thinks about the main idea of the essay. Arguments are logical statements in support of the author's thesis. Each of these elements should consist of at least one sentence.   If you put these elements in order, you will get an introduction. You can use the wording from the text of the assignment as the main idea.   If the text of the assignment is formulated as a question, in most cases, the thesis should be formulated as an answer to the question posed.   STATEMENT OF THE MAIN BODY OF THE ESSAY In an essay of up to three thousand words, one paragraph each is allocated for the introduction and conclusion. The rest of the essay consists of the main body. For example, in an essay of five paragraphs, the main part should consist of three paragraphs, i.e. one paragraph for each argument.   In a three-paragraph essay, only one paragraph remains to present all three arguments, which makes it even more difficult to write. After a brief outline of the main body, one introductory sentence should be written for each paragraph.     The introductory sentences tell the reader what the paragraph is about. This is followed by arguments that justify the essence of the introductory sentence and examples (a quote or a life case). The introductory sentence, argument, and example together make up one paragraph in the main body.   Since the arguments have already been presented in the introduction, there is no need to use semantic transitions in the main body - all that remains is to set them out in the order in which they are presented in the introduction.   CONCLUSION The conclusion is usually the most difficult part of the essay. The conclusion should include a paraphrase of the thesis in light of what was said in the main body, i.e., an explanation of how the arguments support the thesis put forward, and a final sentence that draws a line under the main idea of the essay.   The clearer and more definite the thesis statement is, the easier it is to write the conclusion. Difficulties in writing the conclusion means that most likely the thesis statement is too unclear. In this case, you can try to rewrite the introduction and then go back to the conclusion.   GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS The main recommendation for writing essays for standardized tests is to quickly sketch out an initial version of the essay. If you run out of time, at least you will have a finished, albeit imperfect, product.   In any case, a finished essay is always graded higher than an unfinished one. If you have some time left, however, you can easily improve the essay with small changes.   Resources: How to write an essay What are essays Essay structure, writing style. What is an essay?

      Several months ago, it was challenging for me to find at least 6 hours to sleep. Students most probably know that feeling: professors just don’t care. But after I found Proessays, things changed. I can entrust completing papers to them and have my life back. At last!

      In a guide to writing sociology papers, the Sociology Writing Group identifies four types of papers that are based on data sources as the most common writing assignments given to undergraduate sociology majors: (1) The textual analysis paper in which the student has to analyze a text like an essay or book. The text provides the data, and the student is not asked to interpret the text. (2) The ethnographic field research paper in which data are generated by observing and interacting with people in their social environment. (3) The quantitative research paper in which data are collected using specific methods of data analysis and collection in order to answer a sociological question. (4) The general research paper in which data are collected through library research to refine a question and gather information to support the paper's thesis.
