Fox River DePere Voyager
MOON PHASE (11%)
Three of us from back40sports made it out on the Fox again sunday morning. We go on the water a little later than normal and focused our morning pitching jigs with minnows on a flat in about 12 fow. We would fish a spot for about 30 min and move about 25 yards or so anchor and pitch some more. Slow retrieve was the ticket for us. We got some nice walleyes and a dandy smallie. Hopefully our luck continues into the swamp donkey derby sunday.://www.instagram.com/back40sports/?hl=

Fished today with 25 mph winds and almost 2 foot waves with that great NE wind!
The bite was tough but we managed some nice Walleyes! Rods and Lines , Rod eyes were freezing up today fast.
I anchored the YarCraft with one anchor with my Anchor shock and it held! If you don’t own they are s very useful tool to anchor.
It held with waves and wind . It held the boat so all 4 of us could fish of the leeward side (cast down wind and keep are lines straight & taught)
Plastic paddletails were best. Some on minnows.
This Thursday I have 3 spots open at a great rate. Lots of fun!
For a single angler or several anglers. Caveat is I need 3 people or I won’t go. or text, email.

Fishing has slowed down but still catching them in spots. The heavy crowd traffic messes with theyre behavior. Bigger fish in under 12 fow, smaller and harder to catch fish in deeper water.
Do people not understand how to use their warm up lever? If I hear one more dbag rev the piss out of their motor to "clean it out"!? im gunna flip.

Please excuse my spelling and typo's in my last post. I'm not much for this computer stuff. I love to fish and understand many people do as well so a few issues with others is part of the game.
I am surprised how the vast majority of people are great on the water with all the boats out there.
Fished last Friday it was slow but 2 of us put 20 in the boat from 9-3pm. Some plastics some minnows. All from 19" to 26".
Was out two weeks ago twice and caught 28 myself and the sunday before caught 18 with all the other boats around. Seems I had to run and hide from the other boats to find the fish when there is a crowd. No bites in the best spots. Moved away from the crowd and use your electronics and catch um.
It's one thing to understand rules but it is another to understand people. If you come to the Fox on a weekend between 7 and 5 it's a zoo and you will run into not so pleasant people. Sun and warmth exemplifies the foolishness. Numbskulls are to be expected. So expect to run into them.
Understand people and just change plans. Either fish M-TH at those times. If that's not available to you then dock before 5 am or after 5 pm Friday thru Sunday. Don't be afraid of the dark.
But people are like cows, they will do the same thing over and over because that's all they know.

Anyone can own a boat few can run one. It does amaze me how a person can purchase a $90,000 boat and know nothing of the rules of the water. After being a captain and guide in the Golf of Mexico for several years I have seen pretty much everything I thought. But then after moving back to Wi. my home state I realized most people really have no idea and go with what others are doing. First off the markers on most lakes make no sense and have nothing to do with actual navigation laws and markers. These are put in place by the DNR? I'm not sure but most often the colors and markers on them tell you nothing. What makes it harder is if you are one of the people that actually knows something you become just as confused as the weekend warrior. The great lakes are much better then our local lakes but people just don't know the rules of the water.
Most our laws on the road are based on centuries of water way navigation laws. They are very similar in may ways. So simply think of driving your car. Would you run through Walmart parking lot at 30-50 mph? If a car is parked would you expect it to move for you ?
The fella a few post back obviously a licensed captain as well is very correct. There is a major difference between under way and making way. You are making way when your at drift, you are under way/making way when your motor is pushing you. laws are different for everything. So when a person causes a accident they will understand these laws.
For example, a sail boat underway with a motor has no more rights than a power boat. Under way making way with a sail he has more rights. A anchor Vessel has more rights yet.
A little reading up could save you a very expensive law suit, and maybe the reason for one in the first place.
BOAT OPERATION IN A CONGESTED WATERWAY?
Looked at the regulations for operating in a conjested (lots of boats) area.
LeviM posted that you must be slow no wake on 3/17 within 100' of another boat.
I don't think that's correct! The Boaters Regulation on Pages 14 & 15 state that the following are unlawful:
Page14: Weaving your boat through Conjested Water Way
Page15: Operate a vessal at distance from other vessels or at a speed that exceeds safe and reasonable limits.
Talking to the DNR, if you observe such behavior that warrants a complaint, video the offender and make sure you get their boat number for evidence.
Please be safe out there!
