I was casting the north shore yesterday with a 1" curly tail and had no takers. But the reason I am posting is, When I got to the boat launch, there was a guy casting out a large spoon and I'm pretty sure he wasn't going for crappies. I was reading a lot of the previous posts about calling the TIP line and reporting these people, but nothing coming out of it. As I walked by I noticed he would turn his body away from me so I couldn't see exactly what lure he was casting. By the time I returned to my truck where I keep a copy of the regs with the tip line number, I noticed he was leaving, so I did not call. I am pretty sure the guy knew he wasn't supposed to be fishing the lure he was just by his actions. What would you guys do in this situation? I'm not much for confronting people or trying to preach because it looked like he knew he wasn't supposed to be casting that large spoon, and I don't think he would've stopped if I had said something. I have programmed the number into my cell phone now, so I don't have to wait until I get back to my truck.

For future reference it's also on the back of your fishing license.

If you want to avoid verbal confrontation & possible endangerment then you could write a small note and leave it on that person's vehicle if you knew which vehicle was theirs. Let them know their illegally trying to angle fish out of season and that it has been reported to the proper authorities.

i think #TIP only works for some cell phone services, not all.

1-800-652-9093 is the toll free

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
