Hooks, thanks for the info. Helped more then just me .great info and it will come in handy. Your name was mentioned as well. GETCHAPULL.
Look at picture below your post from earlier today. that there is a Dulth Net.
knotless mesh, 3 different size mesh avilable.
i just had mine Delivered on Monday.
They used to be Christiansen Net Company.
Bruce and Bryan Sederberg are the proprietors.
i gave Catchum all info in a post he had made looking to replace his busted net.
Let Duluth Nets know that you got the information from the guy in Kenosha.
credit due where credit is due! lol
So I was just told of a place that makes Custom Nets...thx to I'll Catchum..
And this place is Legit... they will hand make nylon 8x8 nets in white for $60 bucks... you can also get them in green or black for an extra $15 buck and have it delivered in a week...They are called Duluth Nets or Duluth Fishing Nets..same thing... I spoke with these people and they are willing to make any net you desire..... So in other words we have a New Ferelli !!! Good fishin to all and I'll see you at the Smeltfest 2017..... and we are in need of volunteer cocktail waitresses to serve the man folk.
was out saturday night, and got 2 smelt , a dace, 2 shinners and a big gizzard shad, it will only get better, hopefully.
I think a lot of people do not realize that the rainbow smelt is a non native invasive species, and that dip netting was a by product of their entry into lake michigan, sooooo in actuality from a biological aspect the demise of them was a good thing. just fyi
Comparing spearing on an inland lake to 3-4 weeks a year of shore netting (on a Great Lake) for smelt is kinda reaching....Guess all the incidental catches of alewives in smelters nets also led to their decreased numbers. Shame on all you "Smeltinators' over the years.
Maybe we should spear for them instead...
You want to believe Zebra muscles are solely to blame, believe what ya want. Maybe your buddy Bigfoot ate them all.
You want me to believe that taking thousands upon thousands of pounds of a spawning resource has absolutely ZERO effect? "Wow" is right.
It's the same story in every corner of the state, 10's of thousands of walleyes speared up north every spring, ...no effect, right?
How's the Lake Trout fishery doing on Lk Superior? Limit now is like 1? Tribes, commercial fisherman, sport fisherman all blame each other. Yet the resource simply cannot continue to sustain itself. I guess it's easier to point fingers than to take responsibility.
How about the guy that was finally caught in Onalaska with 2066 bluegills in his freezer? I'm sure he's the only one in the entire state that was overbagging... well, maybe just him and Bigfoot.
Yes, invasive species have taken their toll. So has overharvest.
I heard the smelt are running... all 3 of them. Quick, grab your milk cans... oh wait, milk cans no longer exist either...must be Bigfoot again.
