Nice day out on the water. We're about 2 weeks behind in the weather though so not as much activity as I'd have liked since the water temp is so cool (only 60), but I still got a couple of nice smallies today!

Nice catch indeed. D, it looks still pretty nippy up there. It was a dreadful 82 degrees cold here. :D

Nice bait! :lol:

Summer vacation starts up for me soon and I'm looking forward to something like I caught last year:

So did that guy. That one actually threw the hook right at the back of the transom, but regardless, you don't keep tarpon...you just fight them. Now any keeper snook, grouper, snapper, dolphin, or other tasty critter is a different story. :lol:

I wish I had more opportunities to get out there, but like you said, I'm lucky to live where I do so I slay 'em when I can.

Bass are a great sport fish and a wonderful species to catch. Unfortunately, the big fish are becoming harder and harder to find. Too many people keeping and eating a fish that in all honesty is not a good eater...especially when they get to 19+ inches in size. Keep the smaller ones if you must. Imo, big bass are to be treasured by many and the CPR (catch, photo, release) program is striving to make sure it stays that way. Nothing sadder than seeing someone with a stringer full of 2 or 3 pound bass. Those creatures have reached the ripe old age of 7+ years and are the prime breeders in any fishery. Such a waste to remove them. :(

The majority of my bass fishing is large mouth and it's done in farm ponds that don't get fished much. My husband's uncle has an old farm pond and only a few select people are allowed to fish it.
My lake fishing is usually for whatever is biting. :lol:

We face the same problem with many of our saltwater species which is why there are limits per angler, seasonal restrictions, and a slot-size for keepers.

Like ASF said, if it's legal it's dinner. :D

Yeah we have limits on how many you can catch a day and size limits and certain lakes have their own regulations.

I had a trib member pm me and say they told them something different.

But what I find funny is they told anyone they gave him a stern talking to yet the 6 a.m. thread all posts criticizing them and nutsack was deleted yet the thread in question to this incident was left intact.
Like a say it wasn't a big deal to me, however that's going to turn a lot of people of my gender off from posting there. The only reason I complained on him was I thought that would get rid of him because I was tired of him constantly attacking other members and knew there were some good posters that he did this to, stopped posting as much or at all.
Did they ever reveal his other identity?

Oh I know you weren't. I was just pointing out why you see such a guide. Signs are posted near boat launches and other popular areas along polluted water ways.

What's scary is that WI has a very larger Hmong population and they spend a great deal of time fishing...they keep (and eat) everything they catch. :shock: No exceptions...kids...pregnant women...elderly...they all eat whatever comes out of those polluted waters.

Have they done studies on this population as to the effects of eating the fish? If the kids are normal, birth defects are basically non exist and they have no other unexplainable diseases maybe they now something the rest of the population doesn't.

Off the top of my head, I think the Hmongs have only been coming to WI since the 80s so there probably isn't much to go on yet.

But just as an example, the Fox River, which runs through Green Bay, is one of the most polluted waterways in the world. Plenty of poor/uneducated/minorities eating the fish out of them though despite all the warning signs.

I know you're just kidding, but even in clean rivers and lakes I release bass. Occasionally I'll fish perch, crappies or bluegill if I want a meal, but I never eat bass.

I just can't agree with you on not eating bass, I grew up eating them. We actually eat more perch, brim and channel cat than anything, because other than my husband who loves to fish for large mouth, we usually fish for whatever is biting. My favorite fish to eat is perch though.
We have limits on crappie as well, I believe it is 15/day.
