We have fishers here at the house and at my duck blind on the Wisconsin River.  They are common in Adams County.

He hopes to trap a Fisher (a.k.a. "Large Weasel"). They're getting to be more common in South Central Wisconsin. I've seen a few in the Westfield area.

The DNR issues trapping tags for Fisher, otter, and bobcat.  You can only legally keep these if you have been successful in drawing the tags for them.  He hopes to harvest a Fisher this fall to fill his tag.

Please excuse my ignorance, but what does "fill my fisher tag" mean? Not familiar with the phrase. Thanks.

Yes, I eat trout,  salmon, duck, deer and bear.  This winter, I will hopefully fill my fisher tag.  I also eat my share of wild rice, morel mushrooms and wild asparagus.


The otters and eagles eat plenty of trout in our stream.  I release most of the trout I catch.  But not all of them.  


I caught tons of fish today.  Mainly largemouth bass and bluegill.  I did have a pike try to steal a couple of the bluegills as I reeled them in.  The big sucker (no pun intended) also was released.  They were all too small.  They were all caught in a trout stream.  All fish were released.


The same day I landed the big brown, I released 3 legal brown trout from Neenah Creek.  None of the brook trout I caught in Fairbanks Creek were this summer were kept.  I rarely keep any of the brook trout in our backyard.


I do keep cohos and kings and browns from Lake Superior tributaries.  But that will not be for a couple more weeks.


If you release your fish, wonderful.  If you keep them, wonderful.

Get out and fish :)

Nice fish, keeping a large one to give away for food to someone I think is way better for a river then someone going out catching releasing and mishandling 20 small fish for the enjoyment of c&r. Either way both are legal activities you paid for....

He's not doing anything illegal so who cares?


He bought the license and stamp and is consuming a resource. 


Not everyone likes just toying with creatures. 


If it's a problem you might want to work with the DNR to mandate catch and release.
