MOON PHASE (24%)
Waxing Crescent

I tried shore fishing for walleye on saturday morning. The water was quite high and I managed to only land a walleye. It was tough to find slack water that wasnt full of snags by shore

In my experience calling people out for keeping undersized fish has worked all but two times in the last ten years for me. I prefer to give guys the benefit of the doubt but there are definitely some scum bags out there. If they won't release undersized fish give the warden a call and try to get their plates. I had a warden bust a guy with an undersized pike 40 miles from where I confronted him because I gave them his plates. Given that the lower Wisconsin is such a unique fishery I would love to see more signage around the dam educating people on length limits, protected species, etc. with the tip line number in big bold numbers. Maybe that's something I can work on this winter. Ultimately though its up to responsible sportsmen to be vigilant and call people out on their BS, the few wardens we have are pretty busy during deer/waterfowl season.

My two cents.

The wardens check up at the Dells fairly regularly as I've been checked up there several times. On the other hand, I've only been checked at Sauk once. I have also seen undersized fish not released a few times and I would like to think that it was not knowing the legal size limit but, as the Blue Collar guys say, 'you can't fix stupid'. I yelled at guys running on plane when the chain was 'slow no wake' and they just kept right on going. Just doesn't phase them.

Keeping undersized fish. Saying they didn’t know the size limit is 18” for Walleye and 15” for Sauger. Also ran into another guy who had a limit of walleye already and was continuing to fish them which I had to tell him was illegal. I’ve seen multiple guys that raised my suspicion that they  are double bagging  in the same day. Just poor education all around???? Definitely needs more stops from the wardens

I am reading that as people keeping or attempting to keep undersized walleyes.  It seems to be a common occurrence whenever I am there on the shoreline, especially in the spring.  Best bet is to call the tip line if you observe anyone breaking the law, sometimes they will put you in direct contact with the warden assigned to this area.

Not having been up to the dam in a while, what specifically has been the problem? Just mentioning that there is a problem without saying what it is doesn't solve much.

Pretty disgusted at how many guys don’t know regulations on walleyes this fall. I have been down 3 times and had to inform people of regulations when keeping fish, had I not said something it would have been on the stringer . A stop from the wardens every night during peak hours  for the next two weeks would be really beneficial!

I've had several things happen to me over the years that cut into my Casts Per Hour (CPH). This was a first. Guys in the back ground were muskie fishermen from Missouri. Wedding party was cold. That was a nasty late afternoon of weather. Rat.
