Guy, I seen on a site that stated if there is no state law concerning children and PFD's then the rule we stated below applies. I think it more of a coast guard thing. I wonder if local DNR's would enforce. Next time I see a officer I'll ask. Either way it's a good idea, even if they are good swimmers. Good fishing guys.

you might check out the riffles up by the dam and down below the cable for SMB. They are on an afternoon tear right now. Mepps, Rat-L-Traps, swim jigs. The sun is now our friend! Kalin grubs working too Wink

LDob... not to argue... but your point about it being the law is incorrect, at least in part. Only on federal waters is it required. While it may be a good idea, unless this is a federal water, it is not required. MN has a different, additional law on this... WI does not.

Copied right out of the DNR Boating guide:

Federal law requires children under the age of 13 to wear a USCG–approved PFD while underway in an open vessel on federally controlled waters.

Turfy is right. It is the law to have jackets on . While vessel is underway children under age13must have PDF on. My kids where good about it. They thought it was cool. The jackets wasn't the old school orange they was more like ski jackets. PEACE and be safe out there. Big Smile Cool Big Smile

Lyu.... Didn't even know that was running this weekend. ERR... now I have another consideration on how to spend the couple nice days.

Never fished a little tourney, and called, they said it is a one fish, fun tourney. Everyone looks for that fat 19.9999 inch fish. Sounds like fun. Going to be a crowd, all the rooms are booked.

The river came back up yesterday after a nice Drop of several feet and today is on the rise again. Temperatures have dropped, but still holding above 50F for the most part even though air was 28F this morning.

Yes the Annual R.E. Fall tournament is this weekend and I was wondering if anyone would like to bring a tackle box to the pub tonight and tomorrow at about 1930-2000 to discuss strategy over a couple of beers. I will try to be there both evenings and hopefully steal a few tricks may discover there are lures to leave at home or others that we have not considered that are producing...

[Last Year Was A Blast>

This has been a family tradition for many over the years, taking time away from stalking Bucks and raising Pheasants and maybe even leaving a hot Crappie or Salmon bite just to get out on the good Ole Wisconsin and meet familiar mugs... Cool

Fred, you can only keep walleye and sauger from 15 to 20 ins. and 1 over 28ins. None from 20 to 28ins.

For those of you reporting about 15 inch walleye and sauger, I think there is a slot limit at the Dells where you cannot keep walleye or sauger between 15 and 20 inches.

RiverGuy........Please don't take this the wrong way, but you really should have life jackets on those two beautiful young children.

If I am missing something, then I apologize for sticking my nose in.

The kids told me fall is a great time to troll for big, fat walleyes so off to the river we went yesterday. All we managed was a few shorts but all in all a great afternoon with the river virtually to ourselves. Cold and windy but these two troopers hung in there great even when they weren't bitin. Tried crawlers a couple two tree times but tough to keep a taut line with the wind and tough casting. A few taps but nothin major. Will be back out in between chasin bucks around the woods.

I should add, that sauger in the pic was 15" and I asked them if we should keep it for dinner or throw it back. Throw it back they both said. I asked why and son says well how can it get big and fat if we keep it?!?

X - you have a post under yours from 25 mins. earlier that's one answer to your question and a ton of other posts before that with even more answers. You're kinda new, so you may not know that you can scroll back all the way to the beginning if you'd like for soooo much info on how to fish this water most any time of the year it'd make your head spin. The first time I ever fished the dam area I used this info and caught so many fish I was worn out by the end of the day. Good Luck and have fun!
