Hattie Street Bridge, Menominee River, Marinette County
66° - 70° F
On a side note, there were sturgeon jumping and swimming everywhere. Is that common for this location? Other than being prehistoric I don't know much about the species. Does it last all summer, or is this their "run" (like the salmonoids do in fall and the walleyes do in the earlier part of spring). Please feel free to PM me. I don't intend on targeting sturgeon, (actually I'm glad they hit some other guys bait and not mine), but it was fascinating.
I do other things that are illegal, too. I had a few sips of alcohol before I turned 21. I have eclipsed the speed limit. I may have even forgotten to wear my seat belt once or twice. Jeez, I'm a regular criminal.
I'm so sorry if my behavior offends you, Nacho Programmer! Call the cops, I belong in prison.
p.s. who said anything about leaving it on the bank? I prefer cutting the throat, bleeding it out, and tossing it back in the water.
That is immoral, disgusting and illegal*. Treat the resources with respect. And it is rather stupid, too, considering walleye eat smaller suckers... Release them means more forage.
*It is illegal because if you kill it and throw it on the bank, it is considered littering. If you kill it and keep it, keeping a snagged rough fish is illegal as well.
