Thanks for the info guys. I didn't mean to start a debate, I was just trying to get info from experienced WI anglers. Regs can be confusing sometimes, that's all. You are right though, I should have just gave the DNR a call.

Good luck and hopefully I'll see some of you guys out there next week.

I mean no offense Kat, but anyone who would believe what anyone on LL or even the water says pertaining to rules and regs is, how should I say it, nuts. Why is it that folks don't read the regs, call the WDNR help line, or the warden, or even Mis-Step (who wouldn't surprise me if she didn't know the regs like the back of her hand). There are A LOT of regs. to know, but walk through your fear and give the WDNR a call … and while both of you go through the regs., get his/her name/# , just in case you still get stopped.

just my 2¢

I used to think the same thing until I read a post on lk lnk stating that you can have your typical crappie rig with 2 hooks on 3 different poles as long as its manufactured that way ( crappie rig) It also mentioned to keep the packaging for proof just incase the dnr had doubts how it was made. I cannot confirm or deny this claim as I don't use crappie rigs. But I would b interested if someone had validated this statement as I am a little suspect

You can have 3 baits with hooks in. It's not just 3 hooks. You could put 5 hooks in each minnow or whatever bait (which is just dumb) if u really wanted too as long as it's only 3 baits your using. I've seen people put 3 hooks on one pole separated about a foot or so and have 3 minnows on but that's the only rod you'd b able to use. I typically just use a three way rig on each pole one hook each.

I plan on heading over this way for the first time in a week or two (after a last ice perch trip to the U.P.). I've got my license and great lakes trout endorsement, I'm just curious how many rods I'm legally allowed to fish? If I'm reading the regs correctly it sounds like I can have up to 3 hooks, but can that be on 3 rods? I'm not planning on fishing that many rods, I'm just curious.

Sorry if this is a dumb question, I just don't want to inadvertently do something wrong.

Conditions: Partly Sunny
Fished 6:45am through 10:30am just inside the river mouth near the L with the wall heading north towards the lagoon. Wind from the north.

Floated spawn at 12-13 feet and 6-8 feet. Got the guy pictured on the 8 foot spawn at about 9:30am.

There was a period of about 20-30 min when I caught mine where 2 browns and 3-4 perch were caught by others. Outside of that never did see anyone else catch anything.

Seemed slow for the amount of people on the walls (very few spaces).

Went down there early morning today. Pretty slow for most ppl but I had a decent day in 3 hours. Caught 2 Browns, 1 was 5 lbs and the other was over 12. Let the big guy go tho. Fatheads have been working for me great with the smaller ones, and I caught the big one on a large agila lure

Nothin this weekend for me, but...Talked to a nice ol' Polish feller w 4 browns. He was using 4lb line, no.5ish gold j hooks, long crappie rods, med-large shiners and balanced his wee bobbers with weight so the fish couldnt feel a thing. Super light gear. Guess I can still learn a thing or two from the old fellers! Tight Lines

Ice is gone in the river. I live on the river right across from Jerry's dock and have not seen any ice today. Could change if wind changes. National launch is open as well.

This was yesterday after the wind changed
