"chequamegon bay is a garbage fishery. It is inconsistant and a waste of time. green bay, winebago, milacs, ect make chequamegon bay look like a tadpole pond. dont waste your time here."- pearchslayer. When is the last time you fished Mille Lacs? The bay is a dream compared to Mille lacs. Whole different situation there.

I went out last night and fished in the mud. Didnt mark a single fish. LOTS of ice out there yet and conditions are perfect for a wheeler if anyone ventures out before we get another foot of SNOW!

don't know what if anything is being caught in the hot pond. last weekend there was no one fishing there. the weekend before everyone that set up there on the ice left because of no fish. so I can't help you there. thanks for the report on the meeting. I kind of figured it would be about inland lakes and not lake superior. they usually do not include public opinion on lake superior because there is too much outcry against the current practices.

Attended the meeting last night and as usual they pulled the lake trout portion off the agenda. After talking with a biologist there they are trying to get a lake trout/Apostle islands fishery meeting on the books but no exact date yet Sad Did not sit through the entire meeting as i don't care about bluegill regulations on some small lake no one has ever heard of. 6 DNR officials there getting paid and nothing accomplished. DNR - Do Nothing Right Lips Sealed

Sorry just frustrated

so I see there are a lot of people who really care about this fishery on here as of late and I think that is great that there are so many of you that want to make the bay and the apostle islands a better place to fish. I travel well over an hour to fish the bay and the apostle islands about every weekend over dozens of really good inland fisheries and I have done really well since I moved here about 7 years ago. I cant remember a time when I did not manage to pull some kind of massive fish from the depth of lake superior, whether it be big salmonids out in the islands or big smallmouth, walleye, pike and perch in the bay. this fishery is an amazing place, so lets all remember that. I will be very supportive of what the DNR comes up with in managing this fisheries in the future. I am very supportive of more restrictive bag limits on salmonids if need be as a sport fisherman as I know are commercial fisherman if need be. I only keep enough for one meal at a time any way and one or two fish seem to satisfy that easily. I know commercial fishing seems like a big burden on the fishery and along with sport fishing it very well may be but we will have to work together to support are fish managers in helping keep are fish populations stable. it is after all a public resource that everyone should be able to enjoy from a charter boat captain, weekend warrior, dock fisherman, commercial fisherman, smelters and even pleasure boaters. thanks for listening.

dickfromwi, I understand what you are saying about moneys needed for studies. but most of this is not needed. there are many that already volunteer for creel census' and many other things needed in these studies. so all that is needed is someone to input the data. there are already biologist being paid for virtually nothing. I know, I was in touch with one last year and he was so glad to actually be doing something of importance. the lamprey invasion was something but it is quite controlled now so no additional research or anything is needed there. what is needed is to stop net fishing in the bay and apostle islands where not only lake trout are caught in the nets. many other trout and salmon are caught and thrown away dead because they are not allowed to harvest them. I know, I have watched them and seen the dead fish in the waters behind the boats after they take in a net. if they were relegated to the open waters of the lake instead of near shore sport fishing areas, they would catch mostly what they are allowed to. if the fishing was good here, there would be the money in the area to finance what is needed to insure a healthy sport fishing industry. just look at how much money is spent on raising and stocking trout that cannot reproduce(splake). why not raise and stock reproducing fish? I don't understand that. it would not cost any more. bring the fishermen and the money will come with them.

I really believe the bay and the islands need to be regulated separate from lake superior. Sturgeon bay is regulated different from lake Michigan. It only makes sense that this is a different fishery.

That proposal wasn't thought over too well and you guy's should proofread what you write before you propose it (lots of spelling and grammatical errors). The Apostle Islands Sport Fishery Association must think stocking fish doesn't cost anything and managers have enough free time and money to do long term studies at will. You guys propose good ideas if money and time were expendable to these managers. I would much rather have them continue to direct their budgets and efforts primarily on sea lamprey control, invasive species and regulation of the commercial fisheries. If they don't continue to manage these areas there won't be any sport fishing.

Lake Trout will be fine as long as they continue to control sea lamprey. The lake trout fishery crashed due to sea lamprey in the 1940's 1950's and if they don't continue sea lamprey control there's nothing stopping them from crashing again. With all of the new invasive species entering the Great Lakes who know's what type of effects they could have on the food web. We need to know whats going on!

On a brighter note, Lake Superior is only going to become more productive as it ages and becomes more eutrophic. So, fisheries should only get better in the big lake for our kids and grandkids Smile
