Caught several bass lately with large, gaping holes in their lower jaws from cull tags. First off, I don't see any permitted tournaments until Sept so there should be no culling going on. 2nd, if you are going to use them to assist in removal from your livewell, can you be a little more careful on placement? 3rd, do you really need to punch a hole in a 4lber? Really, you aren't going to cull him, are you? You can't recatch a fish that size with your hands before weigh in? Come on bassmasters, care for the resource.

Here's a little video ya'll need to watch. Let's be a little more careful, eh?

Oh, that water is filthy out there. Those wake/surf boats are doing a number on the shoreline.

wonder if they are going to have a turn-around point further up and then back all the way down the ramp to launch...the off shoot to the right for handicap parking (no boat trailers ?)...those yellow posts will take a beating...didn't see anything on the docks to tie the boat up...they aren't finished so maybe all that is coming..

There was a dredging meeting (I could not attend), but there was not a vote.  The actual dredging is going to be delayed.  They only got back 3 quotes (they expected more), and none of the companies were from Wisconsin.  The quotes they did get were more expensive than they estimated.  Looks like dredging will not happen this year.

Any word on the lake dredging?   I heard there was supposed to be a vote this past weekend to determine whether it would move forward in early Sept?

Thanks

Cheap piers!  No padding to protect boats from sharp corners or post to grab at corner of piers to enter /exit boat safely (a lot of us are getting old and need something to grab on to)     Would be nice to be able to use both sides of the pier while your buddy gets the truck so you don't hold up others who are waiting to use load/unload lanes.  Piers in this situation should be fully padded on all sides to protect boats and in some situations people.   If you know a town board member please ask for this.  Tough site to work with!   It will work but not well when busy.   Looks like erosion could be a problem toward the top of the parking area near the paving edge.

I keep looking at what they’ve done.  I just don’t picture how it’ll work

thatsmistertoyou...I checked out the landing yesterday, all I will say is "interesting design"...gonna be pretty, well except for the guard rail, I was scratching my head trying to figure out how a person is going to launch myself...

don't believe the ice fishing has hurt the crappies (has been pretty poor ice, for fishing, the past couple years)...I do "think" the explosion of shad in this lake has hurt it. I found some pretty respectable gills the past couple times out...you are correct tho, crappies are really small for the most part...

Checked out the new Sect 11 boat ramp over the weekend. What a disaster that is!! Whoever designed it has never used a ramp before! Better yet, who approved the plans?! What a mess that will be.

I've been catching tons of small crappies this year.  From probably 100 crappies caught, maybe 6 were big enough to keep.  Caught a few nice smallmouths, and a few bluegils.  I think the long ice fishing season cleaned out a lot of the crappies.
