Don't forget to pinch!

Recommended Posts

irishjigs

All,

Please, please, please don't forget if you are measuring a walleye to see if it's a keeper or not, to pinch the tail together! A person I know almost got into some trouble if someone else didn't measure his fish again...

Just a friendly reminder! It's going to be a very busy weekend up on the pond. Good luck to all and please stay safe.

If they are really that close why not just release? Grow big and strong cool.gif! That just my opinion!

I am not preaching, but, I have to agree with crappyslayer. If it that close, if it is within a half an inch I let it go, I know the possibilities of the fish shrinking (I WAS IN THE POOL grin.gif)would be in my favor, but, it is just too close. Besides, the CO will be able to add another inch to the fish somehow. It is not worth the trouble.

IMO.

I thought this wa going to be about the previous nights supper?! I also agree when it is that close I would toss the fish as I just don't want the headaches or the ticket.

Guys, I usually agree with you...anything even close to 20" I usually let it go as well. Except it was this guy's first walleye. Kind of a big deal to him, I guess. It happened so I thought I'd post something for those that might be heading up to Mille Lacs for the first time...

Thanks!

If it's just me, ok, I can see throwing back a fish that is just about 20". If it's for a guest or someone who doesn't go fishing much, maybe a kid, or even if it's a super slow day of fishing. You can bet I'll measure that fish three or four times to be sure it's legal, then it's going in the bucket.

Well, I am going to tread lightly backwards in light of the additional information, I am going to agree wholeheartedly with Cheetah. Seeing someone catch a fish like that, I would take the time and measure carefully. like stated 2 or 3 times.

However, to keep the fish from flopping around a person may have to go to extreme measures (knock it out shocked.gif) to make it stay still. grin.gif Kidding of course,

To me i guess it is just the experience of the catch that is the most exciting! Even if it was a persons firt eye what is the problem with a quick picture and release! But you are right it is very hard to let that first one go! frown.gif

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....
