I went to Oconto today. We didn't catch any small fish. Maybe 15 total but 5 were over 28". And other boats around us were also catching fish. One boat landed a 34" brown trout. Not a single report. I do plan to post a report on that thread, but let's hear your thoughts on whats the problem with reporting.
Why is it that there are so few actual fishing reports on Lake link
I’m an old timer myself. Bill Brinkman was a pioneer for sure. Buck Perry’s writings is what taught me about fishing and I still use his methods along with Brinkman’s.
You never know what kind of crowd your playing for is the reason I mentioned Smith.
If only the younger generation of fisherman would study the Linders, Brinkman and Perry we probably wouldn’t get the dumb ass questions, but then again I don’t think that would help.
I'm poor with names, but was thinking of the Southern fellow, Virgil Ward.
Sr. Bill Binkelman and “Cold Front George “ ? Or maybe Buck Perry. CARPIO
Agree Carpio. Zman, I'm old, can remember much further back than Babe, unfortunately.
Z. Worse yet! The Gillespie . CARPIO
It’s funny that you said that. I was going to say Babe Winkelman, but I thought some people wouldn’t know him.
Don't put Larry Smith in the same class as AL Lindner. Not even close. Otherwise I agree with your post.
There’s a new breed of fisherman out there now. The guys that buy the most expensive equipment they can find and ask “where can I catch trophies”. None of these people want to put in the effort, but expect to be told where and how. I think it’s hilarious when you see a blurred out picture of a guy holding a 12” Bass or something else that can be found anywhere.
The whole YouTube craze is another thing. The last thing that I want to see is a person’s documented failed trip out on the water. All these people are nothing more than a wannabe Al Linder or Larry Smith.
Kind of like the video posted on the Winnebago fishing reports page. Showcased the specific spot for the world to see. Like that spot doesn’t get crowded enough already. Guy probably doesn’t even fish there much just moves to the next bite he hears of, so what does he care about what his actions result in...sad
Information mooches. I would love to post pics but the background would give away where I'm fishing. I've seen it happen with posted pics. The arguments got me kicked off LL for two years. It took four years for the crowds to finally thin out after after that. It did contribute to a decline in fishing. It has com back since. That was eight years ago. I still run into that fisherman and he admitted that he should not have done it.
I especially love it when guides post pics and give away locations with background. You Tube vidiots are also contributing to exposing good fishing spots especially if they video outings on lakes in high population areas.
Good luck this year fellow fisherman. By the way where are they biting? LMAO. Rat.
