><> Hello Lake-Link Anglers!!! Initially, after reading a previous post from the other day, I thought to myself, "Self? How stupid could I be that I missed a 'big NO FISHING' sign as I entered the Exner Marsh Nature Preserve?" Feeling rather embarrassed for starting this thread('
'), I went out today to scope out the premises. And to the contrary, THERE IS NO BIG RESTRICTIVE FISHING SIGN AS YOU ENTER THE NATURE PRESERVE!!
') The only restrictive signs you see as you enter the nature preserve is no snowmobiles and no dumping. Considering I don't own a snowmobile('
') and I always use a toilet for my dumping('
'), I figured there was no harm in fishing this marsh. However, as you go to the back of the parking lot, you see a wooden stand that maps out all the nature trails within the nature preserve. On the SIDE
of the wooden stand, there, nailed to the wood is a 4" X 4" sign that has a fish, a fishing hook, and a slash through the middle. If some people think 4" X 4" is big, then I must be packing something HUGE-if you guys get what I'm saying('
'). Even someone looking for signs could miss it VERY VERY easily. It definitely doesn't stick out like the other 2 restrictive signs. Perhaps I wouldn't have been so insulted if a thread like' "Hey guys! I'm familiar with the place and recall a NO FISHING sign posted. Just beware and good fishing.", was posted. Nevertheless, now I know and now I will respect the no fishing rule at Exner Marsh('
'). I certainly didn't intend to break any laws while fishing; nor did I mean to start a thread on a body of water that is apparent to me now, off limits. Sorry my peeps!('
') God Bless and good fishing. <><
