The next time Nickers heads to his favorite fishing spot and finds 8 boats on it he has no one to blame but himself.

100% fact that a blabbering loud mouth can kill a lake when using this website. The crowds will flock and the population will get wiped out taking many years to recover. Newbie prob doesnt care because he will just move to the next lake and do the same. Nothing like choking yourself with your own leash!

Amen 8pointer, I too have fished Metonga for more than 60 years, there were many bad years, this has been a good summer. A few winters ago the lake turned into shanty city, it was hard to catch a perch over 7inches for awhile after that. I hate seeing some newcomer promoting the lake the way he is, as if he feels he needs a medal for fisherman of the year. I just wonder if his buddies in the other 4 boats know what he is posting and what they would think of him now? Lake Link is a wonderful source of info for us fisherman, but man, use your head, its like Nickers owns a bait shop up there!!

Nickers you are full of BS you were out there both days the weekends that you posted you were. Second there are no musky in Metonga I have fished this lake since the 60's and have never heard or seen a musky caught. I hope the lake warden is watching the sight and questions you on this. Third You act like catching perch makes your more of a man! like you know the lake better then anyone else... shout you mouth and enjoy the fishing and share your catch instead of bragging about it!!!! Lips Sealed Lips Sealed

I know about both rules catching and possession....and I am within the rules.as for pulling fish from metonga. ....there are plenty of people that say that the lake is dead and no perch are left in it.....with the video I have in all areas in that lake you would be amazed on whats in it besides perch....that lake is very much alive and well, perch, bass, walleye , northern and muskie

Please checkout the possession limits in the fishing regs on page nine. I'm not a fish biologist so I'm not sure about your theory on the size of fish being taken. One thing I am sure about is that Lake Metonga receives much fishing pressure during both summer and winter. If all or most fisherman were to take out the numbers you describe in your posts this lake be harmed. It is our responsibility to protection our resources for up coming seasons and for the generations to come.

You're talking about the daily limit and he mentions the possession limit. The possession limit is 50. This means that if you have 50 panfish in your freezer at home, you're not allowed to fish for more until you consume some. The possession limit is twice the daily bag limit for panfish and differs for other categories. If you're out there every day catching your limit and already have 50 fish in your freezer, you are fishing illegally. Or you could also be eating 25 fish a day on the second day and fishing legally.

It's 25 per day per person , so 5 people 2 days is 250....we kept 9 inch and bigger so there isn't a stunt in growth for next year....I also have dropped my go pro camera in this lake quite a few times this year and there is a huge amount of fish in this lake and of great size also.

That's an awful lot of perch to consume Nickers. You might want to check the regs on the possession limit. This is a great lake but over harvesting can be devastating to any body of water.

Nickers...do you know if the perch are still biting? My dad and I are headed up tomorrow for the weekend, staying just south of Pelican Lake in Elcho.

Never fished Metonga so any pointers would be appreciated! Does the lake have decent bass population as well?

Thanks in advance.
