I would chime in and state that it is important for anglers to respect a fishery. I am not trying to act sound like an antagonist. So please don't take this the wrong way.... In my run-ins, I see way to many people keeping fish to feed egos. The more fish they can keep the better they feel. I get it, my house is next to a couple others and yes we want to out fish them thinking with a competitive mentality........At the end of the day, do we as anglers all have to keep a limit of fish? Or should we do what some have posted earlier and keep enough for "A MEAL" and release the rest (Especially big'uns)? Drives me nuts, and I am certain I am not the only one. Not knocking anybody's law abiding right to do what they want within parameters, but........ Another thing that should continue to be pointed out in an educational type manner is releasing mature fish. Big pan fish are a very important part of a lakes ecosystem and the prime genetics can get wiped out very fast if guys catch and keep them. I know this is redundant to some reading this, but please understand some still need help with understanding. Recently we have seen to many big fish taken from this fishery. That includes big pike. I was sad to hear of a friend who caught a 38" CPR'ed it and then a couple weeks later the same fish! YES SAME FISH! was harvested. An example of "EGO" If I cant have it, no one can. How can we as anglers want to take all the big fish out of the lakes, whole heartily knowing that the next generation will not get a chance to catch it? Yes I truly think the DNR needs to help limit what is happening, not only in this state, but in WI to (worse).
Fish lake is seeing more pressure than ever. And that is a fact! Many variables go into it. It is super easy now to troll the internet, and find info about good bite. Does anyone remember the days when one got most there information at the bait store? Now anglers walk in get there bait and leave without needing to communicate with bait shop workers, because they know of the hot bite at so and so lake.....
lets all try to be a little more responsible and continue to help "THE FUTURE" of fishing, instead of abuse the here and now. Sorry to vent, I don't ever post in manners like this, but I felt I should. I encourage you all to check out a cool conservation organization called " recycled fish" lots of good info relating to conservation and the well being of our fisheries. CONSERVATION CONSERVATION CONSERVATION.......................Again cliche', but it is up to us to protect! That is all... Tight lines, and be safe, JH
