I would like to thank the ones that do not care about the resource, the fishery, are the damge they do. Those that do this kind of stuff would be upset if I did this in their backyard.

Garbage left behind.

Blocking with nails and toilet bag in far snow bank.

Walleye remains and a beer can.

Another beer can, these are great when they drift into the shallows and kids cut their feet on them swimming.

Toilet bag FULL, I like to swim and fish in waters that have large amounts of fecal matter.

You guessed it, more blocking.

Walleye remains. This guy is not wastful, he even cut out the cheeks.

Complete set of skids. I like to run into these when I'm guiding. It is not a full trip until you wreck your boat and hurt clients or tear the lower unit off.

I have seen enough of this. They can call me a rat, squealer or what ever they want, but I will not stand for this any longer. I am on the lake every day, if see a beer can left behind or even think some slob may be damaging the resource TIP is getting called. I ask that the many true sportsmen and women do the same, time for us to put a end to this.

Thats fricken "bush league"....I like to see a neat lake...and i turn my boat around when that (Contact Us Please) crawler tub flies out and drills me in the face. It is not that hard to do.

My neighbor with popular river access will be posting his land and having C.O.'s or deputies ticket those disregarding his signs. The reason for this is garbage and camping. Last year he had people camping on his land and leaving tons and tons of garbage.

He would let everyone fish if everyone took their garbage.

Thats the way it looked on our local lake also, it's just a sin that people disrespect the beautiful natural resources we have!!! i even found some 2lb propane canisters frozen into the ice,maybe we should form some kind of garbage swat team and have the dnr give us permission to give out tickets, can't wait to be up there this summer! good fishin

Back when I was guiding in Wisconsin, we had a warden that hated litterbugs more than anything.

One day I was guiding, fishing below a dam from my boat. A pickup truck pulls up and occupants procede to toss four full garbage bags into the river. I had my binocs out but could not get the plate number off truck.

Bags floated over to east side of river where it was unsafe to take boat. I tried snagging them with Zara Spook but too far away. Got home after dark and called our warden. He went down to the river in the dark and managed to snag a few of the bags of garbage from shore. Unfortunately there wasn't any mail or other stuff that would have helped ID the lubbers what tossed the trash. He and I were both hoping for something with a name or address. But he sure tried to nail em!

I was out on Prior Lake 2 weekends ago, dropped the aqua vu down the hole and saw about 2 cases worth of bud light cans and bottles down there. If I ever catch someone doing that I'm gunna (insert physical threat here).

I get mad when some flips their cigarette butt out the window, seeing all that crap on the ice is outrageous.

When I see someone throw their cigarette on the ground in a parking lot my favorite thing to do is either put it under their windhshield wiper or slip it into their car if the window is rolled down an inch or two.

I can understand how up set every one is I have only two questions one eight dollars a day for lake access I spent ten days on red lake and went out of westwind the trash bags were all over the ground I my self and the other three sportsmen with me could see there was no room for more .Our guide service asked please put the trash in bags in the back hall and he would take care of them and he did .Now I know this is not the answer to all the problems that are pictured but part of the solution would be more or larger dumpsters my guess is if we are all not part of the solution we are part of the problem. Now if we can figure out the tons of walleyes taken out of the lake can we estimate the amount of anglers that are paying access fee,s? either money from access fees or larger fees to cover the larger or more dumpsters. ( Just one persons observation )

The idiots that are doing this don't care about a dumpster, to them the lake works just fine as they are obviously too stupid to realize the damage they are doing. It all comes back to respecting the resource. Makes me sick to see this going on!

JP-

I'm glad you have the candidness to bring this to everybody's attention. It's important for all of us to see how some individuals abuse the resource.

I would hope these are isolated events!

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.
