From a reliable source.  There was a license plate check at Oconto landing yesterday.  120 plates were checked.  NONE came up as Oconto residents and 30 some were out of state.  Nice.

I agree, it's only a matter of time before all launches get shut down.  I've been out twice.  The first time I watched a charter boat get launched and observed other boats with 3 to 4 people on board, but they could have been families.  The second time the charter boats were out fishing and so were the guides.  The one guide boat was definitely not family.  When the weather warms, the pleasure boaters will be out and it will all end abruptly.................

Does this just move the "problems" to county and city parks?

Seems the state may be better equipped to enforce rules and regs than passing it down the chain to lower levels.

Yeah......I fished Sunday @ High Cliff. The harbor wasn’t crowded. Everybody maintaining distance. The other lots were packed. Couldn’t help but think when driving in it was as heavy or heavier than summer traffic. Pretty much figured then that closures would happen.

Here are some more comments from Oconto Cty/Health Officer on why they made the decision to close the parks/launches.


"This is a difficult time for all of us. We're having to change our behavior and change what normally we do," said Debbie Konitzer, Oconto County Health Officer.Konitzer says the decision to close the North Bay Shore boat landing came Saturday.

"There were 140 vehicles. They represented 34 counties, three states. There were no Oconto County residents parked there. However, over half of the vehicles that were there, were from counties that have 10 or more cases. So that's where our concern is, that there are people coming to Oconto County that are coming from areas that there is a high incidence of the illness," she said.

Assume some folks on this site go to Lake Erie every year and Ohio has suspended the sale of non-resident licenses for now.  Our group has been fishing Port Clinton area for years but we are postponing our trip this year until things clear up.. There are many folks making a lot bigger sacrifices these days than our group missing out on catching some walleye's (that is how I look at it)..

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTAP) -  In response to the public health situation with COVID-19 and the Ohio Department of Health’s (ODH) Stay at Home Order, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife is temporarily suspending the sale of non-resident hunting and fishing licenses until further notice.

The tribes in northern Wi plan on spearing as soon as the ice is off the lakes. They have declared a harvest of over 55,000 walleyed. (Vilas County News Review 4/08/20). The Lac du Flambeau tribe plans to spear in 11 counties. Ice out on many lakes may fall close to the 4/24 deadline for the Safer at Home order. If that happens it's a non issue.

Um, Why is the Fox point DePere launch still open?  Just stupid.  Shut it down.  The amount of people there is insane not to mention all who come from out of town/ different states.  Are people really that selfish & inconsiderate?  Stay the hell home & wait this thing out.  Or; go find a secluded place to fish, do some yard work, or go for a walk if you need to get outside.

Ugh. Thanks for update Doc.  Yeah. The precedent is probably set.
