I just drove by there... there were about 8 holes drilled on the NW corner by the tree in the water...


Reading back......  Snorkel.. Hmmmmmmmmm strange how you post rules for Gorney .. then posting water depths/temp in your "BOAT" with pic. when there is clearly a large sign on the road by the upper parking lot  stating "NO BOATS" allowed, maybe thats for "other people".

Personally only hooked into a dink bluegill, but my husband caught two decent sized largemouth and hooked into a third with a plastic worm on the east side of the pond. Water was crystal clear.

Arrived shortly after 7am. Started with a top water and hooked into a solid bass on the north end of the pond, west of the pier. Also caught a smaller bass and perch on a Senko, south side of pond. Another guy caught a good 18' bass off the pier. Im convinced there's some larger bass to be caught, will be back.

There seems to be some confusion on the Urban regs, so here it is right from the DNR...

"Urban waters have a year-round season, no length limits, and a special  season (March 11 thru April 28, 2017) for juveniles 15 years of age and younger and certain disabled anglers. They also have a daily bag limit of three (3) trout, one (1) gamefish (largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, walleye, sauger, and northern pike), and ten (10) panfish (bluegill, crappie, pumpkinseed, yellow perch, and bullhead)." 

All other regs not superseded by these special ones still apply, in particular:

This is from page 10 of the 2017 Wisc fishing regulations:

It is illegal to: to deposit fish carcasses or parts, including entrails or other waste, into Wisconsin waters or on the bank or shore of any water.

So the person who caught the pike was in violation for dumping it on the shore/bank.  The size really has nothing to do with it.

I was simply pointing out that the pond is an urban fishing water, as you seemed to imply that it wasn't. That's all. :)

perchkilla,

The urban rules don't mean that it's legal to kill a fish and toss on bank or leave on a picnic table....

That's illegal even for carp, it's also illegal to purposely kill a game fish and dispose of in the water or the bank.  It's all in the regs. (You can legally kill carp or other rough fish but they need to be properly disposed of and that means not dumping back in water or on bank/shore) 

The urban rules simply state that you can only keep 1 game fish per day of any length and 10 panfish, all other Wisconsin regs still apply.

Also if one bass is caught by someone and then someone gives said person a bass, that is illegal because you would then have 2 bass on your stringer.

Someone also killed 3 geese and tossed in the dumpster.....

This is from page 10 of the 2017 Wisc fishing regulations:

It is illegal to: to deposit fish carcasses or parts, including entrails or other waste, into Wisconsin waters or on the bank or shore of any water.

Snorkel, I'm not saying it's not a terrible thing to do, but Gorney Park is a Wisconsin urban fishing area - so no length limit would apply. In the decades I've been fishing there, open water and ice, I've never seen a Northern.

More illegal activity at Gorney...

First I have suspected pike are "present" in Gorney because I had several line cuts that could only have been a pike...

Someone caught one and took it upon themselves to kill the pike which was undersize on non urban fisheries and leave on a picnic table...

It's illegal to do this...even with rough fish and not to mention it's so disgustingly unsportsman like it makes me sick...

Pike are not rough fish and don't affect the other fish in the lake and in fact they will eat the stunted bluegills.

If I see anyone doing stuff like this I will get the license plate if I can and report to Caledonia PD and the DNR!!!!!
