i started out the day on saterday at silver lake for carp got 5 in about an hour and a half all about 10 to 15 pounds. then jumped in the car and went out to game haven. we started out fishing for sunfish and crappies with worms. then we headed around the lake untill we found a beaver dam and got about 10 mid sized crappies and about 20 nice sunfish. i put on a beetle spin and started geting bass. we headed across the lake and on the first cast i got a largemouth that was 22 inches long and had a 17 inch girth. we did the math thing to find the weight and it said it was 7.9 pounds. my best ever. i wish i had my camera

Wow, that is a nice day. Nice work.. What did you catch the carp on? Crawlers or corn?

That bass is a bruiser. Nice fish. They are out there for sure. A beetle-spin is a good crappie and monster gill lure (especially in mid summer). Just a friendly reminder to make sure your not targeting bass at this time of year since bass season is closed. It sounds like you were going for crappies and gills thou.

Great report and thanks for sharing.

Hey Tyler,

Since your so good at pointing out everyone else's fishing mistakes, weren't you illegally fishing for Lake Sturgeon this last week? I thought I read in the regulations that Lake Sturgeon season on the Rainy River is open 4-24-07 to 05/07/2007 or did I read it wrong? I'm just trying to stick up for the guys that get chastised all the time. I consider myself a law abiding fisherman and I'm sure muskiehunter does too. Just keeping you in check as well. I think? If I am mistaken I apologize.

NutsAboutFishing,

I'm not trying to pick on anybody, nor tear apart a great day of fishing. I'd be excited as anybody to catch a 22" largie. I just dropped a friendly reminder to those that are reading this thread that one cannot target bass at this time of year. I didn’t mean to make it sound as though I thought anybody was breaking the law.

About Sturgeon Fishing. No apology needed. There's some confusing regs about Sturgeon fishing. Feel free to recheck the regs.

http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/news/releases/index.html?id=1145379694

The lines below should clear it up

-Oct. 1 - April 23 -- Catch and release only.

-Anglers not intending to harvest a lake sturgeon may practice catch and release for the species during the open season.

Again, I’m not didn’t mean to come down on anybody or assume anyone was fishing out of season. FM is a great tool to keep the casual angler up to speed on the some of MN’s hundreds of fishing regulations. FM can also be a tool to help keep everyone in check (including myself) as long as we don’t take reminders like this personally.

I hope it’s all good.

I stand corrected. I did not catch the October-April 23 overlap. So you were catching and releasing I presume? And no fish were kept out of the water longer than necessary to photograph right?

Ha,

The fish in my avatar was tagged, so it was my duty to turn in the DNR tag Number. I didn't have a pen handy so I just took a picture. If you zoom in enough, you can read the tag #.

Please take any further personal attacks offline. WoW.

Nutsaboutfishing...you need to settle down. Tyler's post meant no offense. He is just being an advocate for the fish which is what we should all be doing. He didn't accuse anyone of anything, he just gave a reminder that bass season is closed, and in very good taste I might add.

Can't we all just get along? Group hug??? tongue.gif

NutsAboutFishing,

Tyler's post was a simple reminder to those reading the forum that bass cannot be targeted out-of-season. When a casual fisherman hops on the forum and sees that a 22" largemouth was caught at Gamehaven, the natural reaction is to go try to catch another big fish. The friendly reminder issued was to let people know that targeting bass is not legal until May. In no way did his post suggest that Muskiehunter was targeting bass out of season.

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff

      Two additional open-house meetings are scheduled in the Twin Cities metro area to help people understand and ask questions about Minnesota’s draft statewide deer management plan. “We heard from some who wanted open-house meetings closer to home in the metro area, so we added two to the other ones in the lineup,” said Leslie McInenly, acting wildlife populations and programs manager with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Here is the schedule for the metro area meetings: St. Paul, Monday, April 23, DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road. Richfield, Monday, April 30, Wood Lake Nature Center, 6710 Lake Shore Drive. These meetings are in addition to 35 others in which Wildlife staff will provide handouts explaining the deer plan and process, and will talk with attendees individually and in small groups. The DNR is taking online public comments on the new plan now through Wednesday, May 9, at mndnr.gov/deerplan. There will be paper copies of the questionnaire available at the open houses for those who are not able to complete it online. All meetings are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and people can arrive anytime during the two-hour time frame. There will be no formal presentation at the meetings. Minnesota’s new deer plan sets a new statewide harvest target, increases citizen participation in deer management, and outlines ways to keep the population and habitat healthy. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Has anyone heard what they'll do about the City Auto Glass walleye tourney if the ice isn't off by May 19? Even if the ice is off....will they close Pike Bay?
