Im pretty sure the reason you guys (crappieBS) haven’t been doing well on Dubay is that the numbers of crappie are WAY down. When you catch and keep many many fish...and even go so far as to give a lot of them to people (which is legal), it hurts the population. This past summer you have been on the BEP and doing the same. I have talked to recipients of some of the fish so know facts. I hope the DNR would create a 10 fish panfish limit on Dubay and the BEP to protect them from people who are able to fish EVERYDAY and harvest over what the fishery is able to sustain. Also, spring harvests are killing the fisheries as well...I’ve seen with my own eyes people keeping buckets of pannies in spring from both these bodies of water! People please use your heads! This post will most likely be removed for hate speech, but I feel something needed to be said as I know I’ve met a lot of folks who are concerned as much as I am.

Fished with THE BOYS on Saturday... 20 boats , 14 Walleye caught between 15- 19 15/16"... winning boat had 5 fish, 2nd place 3 eyes, while I took 4th with 2 eyes of 17 1/2 & 15 1/2.... jigging out fished the trolling... Winds from the east fish bite least!
Peak flow thru dubay dam during snow melt was in excess of 33,000 cubic feet per second. At 7.48 gallons per cubic foot and 60 seconds per minute that would make almost 15 million gallons per minute., admittedly normal flow is 1/10th of that but that’s quite a toilet flush.. of course it is undesireable for any polutant to enter a waterway.. and an average joe like you or me would be be treated differently than a municipality but your concern is probably half way to the gulf of mexico by now.

Slow day today. Fished with my five year old so not exactly hard core. He did catch one walleye and lost a second. He is still learning to to jig. The two fish we caught were on a steep shoreline drop off. The fish were in 12-16 feet and we really lethargic.
