Larry Smith Fishing show
There is nothing wrong with still fishing but with the directives from our leaders we need to be fishing close to home. We all have to be responsible with our activities to protect ourselves, family, friends and people we don't know. If a show disregards the current directives to fishing where ever they want they are being irresponsible. We all have to be together on this and to do they right things in trying to get our situations back to normal. Prop-Buster stay safe and healthy.
Limit is 5 walleye & 20 perch per day. Possession is double that. Although the weather worked against our party of 6, we had 4 perch over 10 inches after two days. Seems the perch population is down and our guides wanted us to fish for northerns.
Ive just seen greatly reduced max limits in the past 20 years. The most glaring was probably Mille Lacs recently....totally shut down.
Those are beautiful fish, I just hope they are very careful about how many fish they haul in over there
Scout and Mike, Thanks for explaining. With that said maybe a disclaiming to start the program would have been beneficial. The show gave the impression that there was no regard for the stay at home decree and social distancing. Stay safe and healthy!
Whats the limit on Perch out there? The catch they showed was certainly A LOT. I won't speculate the number.
Multiply that times thousands of anglers.
How long will that hold up?
That show was done on March 15 & 16th. We were out with Perch Eyes on the 13th & 14th, so that was all before the current situation we are in.
Just got done watching Larry Smith's show this morning. He was on a trip to Devils Lake. Was this a repeat of a previous show? I sure hope it was because there was no mention of co-vid 19 and absolutely no social distancing going on.
First fish you get on a fly you made yourself is a serious rush!
Crawdaddy is right you don't need a $500 fly rod to get into fly fishing and welder you will probably be surprised how fast you get the hang of it.
I have a steelhead on the wall of my office at work that I caught on a fly rod with a fly I tied, that was a great day.
Welder... I start by teaching the basic rhythm of the cast in a wide open area. No hook. Then when ready to try live... go in a boat and make sure nothing is behind boat to get line tangled. Also want to avoid winds over 10 mph... at least at first. Seems scary or hard... but when you hook up? That rush is pretty awesome. See a fish hit on 90% of casts? Well, that just becomes pure angling bliss... I am about 2-3 weeks away from days like that.... virus is not stopping me. Usually the only trailer at the landing anyway....
