Market value, probably 5 bucks, laugh! Hope to see some of you guys tomorrow at the Gateway.

Had a half day trip today with grandfather and 4 grand-kids. Grandfathers directive: we don't care what kind of fish we catch and we aren't going to keep any. That made my choice of spots pretty easy, in four hours of fishing I gave up after a dozen or so casts with my jig rod and spent the rest of the time baiting and unhooking fish, as did grandfather. We caught a mixed bag of fish: perch, gills, smallmouth and a lot of rock bass. One particular eagle had some good eatin and provided a spectacular show, he wasn't very boat wary and came in close for rock bass.  We fished humps with wood and rock in 6-9'.

Despite flat water and bright skies we caught almost all the fish on bobbers, glad the orders weren't for keeper walleyes, thinking it might have been a struggle today.

First couple weeks in August seems to be the most popular time of year for families, fish with a lot of kids, great fun.

Thanks for the reply Hookedonfishing! I had heard the firewood ban rules had recently changed. I appreciate the heads up on the Gypsy Moth thing. I'll check that out.

Thank You I have only been up to the TFF in the spring and fall and I know the blood suckers can be bad at sunrise and sunset but I was just wondering if they are really bad this time of year where they carry you off.

Sorry for the sarcasm but the bugs (annoying blood sucking sort) are rampant. I just spent  4 days up there. Black flies, deer flies and skeeters were off the chart. I recommend anything with a healthy dose of deet.

i had 15 percent Repel and that barely worked. Lots of rain up there this year.

Here is a link to a WDNR PDF dated April 2016 that speaks directly to the firewood issue on the TFF.

under Rules for State property -

As of June 1, 2014, if you are bringing wood to a state property it must meet all of the following criteria:

be from within 10 miles of the state property; and

If you are bringing firewood to a state property, it must originate within 10 miles of the state property in consideration. Firewood from another state that is quarantined for emerald ash borer is not allowed. DATCP-certified firewood may be brought onto state properties – their certification guarantees that firewood has been properly treated to kill pests and disease-carrying organisms.
