Fishing report / rediculous occurence

Recommended Posts

I've been off recently and have been able to take advantage of the warmer conditions we've been having.  Like others that have been reporting the majority of my success has been on the ned.  Catching between 15 - 25 each time with a few nice fish in the 16 - 19 inch range.  Lots of fish in the 10 -12 inch size.  Without saying too much about location ( no one seems to post about this area🤐) the water temps in the area I've been seeing have been between 46 - 52 degrees depending on time of day and location.  Most of the fish have been in the 5 - 15 foot range.  Main point I am trying to offer is that the rock is a large lake and water temps can vary greatly.

The ridiculous occurrence I am talking about is what I witnessed at the ramp yesterday.  When I pulled up to the dock my boat I saw two guys in the parking lot who had finished taking their boat out of the water loading a net with the fish they had kept.   I wasn't sure why but it became apparent shortly.  They started back down the bank and proceeded to release the fish into the water.  Unfortunately, either due to the stress of being in their well or time they were held out of water they were having difficulty swimming away.  So much so that one of them grabbed a stick on the bank and started poking at them ( I guess that is fish CPR 😕).  I say this simply to point out if you want to keep fish for the table, then keep them.  If you only want to keep fish in your boat is to show off at the ramp then do the right thing and take a picture and release the fish immediately.  What's the point of harming/killing fish if you don't plan on keeping them 😠

Guys around here do that crap all the time.  It boils my balls.  

The guides all do it so they can post pics/videos on their insanely gay Facebook accounts.  By the way.... Please Like And Subscribe! and call/text/or message them for a trip. 🙄

The YouTube channel guys do it so they can have an "end of day" scene in their videos.   It's the whole signing off, "thanks for watching", hallelujah thing.

Yeah, I'd like to shove all of them, and all their GoPro's, into a soggy bilge compartment and leave them there until they loose about 30 pounds, and don't feel handsome enough to be movie stars anymore.

Someone needs to poke them with a stick. Big one. Hard. Over the head. Till they have trouble walking. 

Zona wannabes. That loudmouth buffoon puts em in the livewell constantly on TV.

I despise the haul them around in the livewell all day for a picture mentality. I don't fit the mold though, I guide and have a Youtube channel but I think several pictures with big fish is just as impressive as a single "Hero" picture, plus I know my fish have a way better chance of survival. And I don't care if you like and subscribe, I'm not trying to get Youtube famous 🤣

Two years ago, up here in Michigan on Lake Huron, a guy on Youtube took pictures of 10 smallmouths that were between 5.5 and 6.5 pounds. I asked the same question, "How can you justify risking the lives of these trophy fish by keeping ten of them in the live well to take these pictures? I later found out that the live well pumps had stopped working, and half of those fish died. Idiots!
