I must correct myself, in all fairness, the 2nd -15 acre lake was not in the circuit, I talked to fishermen that fished there later tournement day after they were done with their limits on the first 15 acre lake

Russell I'm glade you made changes. I live between the TWO fifteen acre lakes and remember two years ago walking out and seeing hundreds of gills on the ice and asking why there was so many people keeping so many fish and the fishermen stating its tournament time. The guys also Pre-fished limits 2-3 days before the tournament. These guys are really good fishermen and hope with the advertising there's something left for the summer fishermen- The other 15 a acre lake is outside of Howard's. If it's legal I guess it's O.K.?

Mafia, I run the tournaments held at Anglers Avenue and appreciate your opinion and am ALWAYS willing to discuss anyones thoughts on how to make things better. This year our list of lakes includes Crystal Lake, Gerber Lake, Long Lake (fon du lac) Croked lake, Cedar Lake (Manitowoc) and Lake Ellen. I am not 100% positive but I believe all of these lakes are larger than 15 acres except one and also all of these lakes have fisheries and or other tournaments on them that have more participants than ours except one. Our events average 25 teams or so which is 50 guys. Each team brings to shore a 12 fish limit. So thats 12 fish for two guys they kill. Ofcourse they have the choice to keep more for a meal if they want. Since the beginning we have made some improvements like putting a minimum size limit on the fish to avoid keeping smaller fish and lowering the amount of fish each team weighs to help manage the amount of fish being taken from the lake. I can personally say that any given weekend all of these lakes see enough traffic to keep way more than what is taken from our events and I feel pretty good about how we are handling the tournies. If you want to talk about ways we can do better I am all ears......

Tournament fishing on 15 acre lakes seems like a bad idea. I sure hope the people who fish these think about that. I'm talking about the Anglers Ave posting? I don't believe these guys do any catch and releasing right?
