Flood the Rink

Fished Blackduck on opener weekend and yesterday (5/15).

I had success in 8.5 to 10 fow pitching jigs (1/8th to 1/4 ounce). Lighter the jig the better. Spot tail shiners seemed to work best on opener but yesterday only fatheads seemed to catch fish. Yellow, chartreuse, or orange colored jigs worked.

Pitching the jigs seemed to work best as I was unable to get any strikes near the boat. I tried slip bobbering with no success. Others around me were catching fish with bobbers however.

Fished Red Sunday afternoon until dark. When the wind was up I drifted with rigs tipped with shiners or fatheads. Neither produced more than the other. 6-8 fow worked best. My catch rate was down from last year but still managed 2-3 fish an hour. After the wind died down I pitched jigs with modest success. Bobbers did not work for me on Red either. Might be me smile.gif

Good luck!

      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.
