If I see one more picture of a guy holding a trophy Northern, caught out of Silver Creek I'm gonna puke. Don't get me wrong I'm happy he caught the fish but,THROW IT BACK!I know its a fish of a lifetime but have a camera or just measure it and you can get a replica made that looks exactly like your fish.

You know every time the P.B. publishes a picture like this there is gonna be 50 guys with big sucker minnows and tip-ups going after their trophy.Guys this is a small pond its not Lake Mille Lacs,it needs to be a catch and release only for the Northerns.Its time the DNR puts some lower limits on the area reservoirs so the bigger fish can be preserved

I'm not sure what you are referencing. I gather someone caught a northern out of that little pond and the paper published a picture?

Thursday's Post Bulliten "Catch of the week" has a picture of a guy with a 20# Northern taken from Silver Creek Reservoir.Hopefully, the guy released it after the picture.

why are you so quick to jump on the guys back for keeping a trophy pike? if the guy is not breaking the law then why not be happy for him. who knows he may have been fishing for 40 years and finially just got the one for the wall. i have not read the story or seen the pics but, for every trophy took out i would like to believe there are many more released.

Every time I hear someone say the words "Silver Creek" I think I'm gonna puke.

I actually caught a nice one yesterday on a little less controversial body of water. Believe it or not I was actually jigging for pike when I got her. Hopefully Tyler will be able to post it for me.

I agree with Res Dawg that there are going to have to be limitations on what is kept out there. I personally haven't fished there myself but once all the controvesy settles down it would be a nice place to go. I just hope all the decent size fish haven't been fished out by then like Kalmer has.

Nice fish Crickshop! I love seeing pictures of people holding up a big fish and its even better if they release it. The picture in the PB wouldn't bother me so much if it had been caught in a bigger lake but, our little ponds around here can only hold so many of the bigger preditor fish.once they're gone all you will end up with is a bunch of 5" sunnies and 6" perch.

A couple weeks ago I was with my brother when he picked up his replica of a 14 3/4" perch it looks every bit as good as the real thing and will last longer.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Hey Matti, Fess up. Who actually caught that one for you? Ha ha!!

You'll have to come down to Winona some time yet this year. Fishing has been so-so but you know the beer is always good.

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.
