I have never fished 7th, but 5th and 6th a fair amount. Walleyes seem to be found on 5th around the "sunken" island. Fairly easy to find - there should be some grass growing up. Sometimes there is a milk jug there as a marker. Also - there is a point with rocks/sand that drops to around 16 to 20 feet. The island is more on the northwest portion of the lake. The point is on the southeast side. Best luck on 6th for walleyes is where the river come into 6th from 7th - the entire bay only gets about 14 feet deep or so and early in the year the walleye seem to be in that bay and along the shore to the south of the bay. There is a resort there and when we are up on ealry June, lots of boats fishing in that bay. Also - there is a point as you enter the bay the can be good.

Not much on the crappies - but have found them in the reeds and pads early in the year. The point on 5th and 6th are good, so is some of the back of the bays. There is a lot of small stumps, sticks, etc. close to shore for spawning and we see a lot in these areas. Just before going into 6th from 5th on the right or east side can be good. We target a lot of bass when we go up, but fish some walleye and crappie also. Some nice northerns, but there is a length limit - 40 inches I think.

We left plenty of fish to be caught later in the year! Fishing was slow with a few small Northerns and a few nice sunnies caught. No 'eyes. Weather did not help - or maybe it was a lack of talent? grin.gif There is always next time.

      I got a good idea........maybe have a couple more beers and not worry so much about your neighbors. In fact invite them over for a dinner and a beer and discuss your issues...that's how my neighborhood settles issues.  Man to man...works out pretty good....

      Send him some literature on CWD. Like FishingCT mentioned, disease spreads at common gathering points where deer may rub noses. CWD, for example, spreads through a prion or protein that can spread this way.  This spread of disease is an example of why disease in raised herds is such a big deal.

      Feeding deer, especially in the winter, is a really good way to spread disease. Maybe you won't have to worry about them as much next winter after all

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.
