I am sure somehow this will get me in trouble? I don't take anything home, but enjoy the hell out of getting most anything in the boat. A lot of times I will go to UL and get literally hundreds of WB (throwing all of them back in). Would it be better to take them back to the harbor and see if anyone wants them??? (OF COURSE, for free). Or is handing them out illegal or better yet offensive? Crap I don't know, but it seems like getting them out of the lake is the best form a conservation/improvement standpoint?
It is a game fish so I think you have to donate them at home and not in the field. Oh yeah and don't forget the paperwork! Now you know. So I think that should change at Utah Lake but that would stray things away from the "keep it simple stupid" (KISS) method.
Yes the asian crowd can sometimes be a good sign when you arrive. Like seaguls they show where the food is! You know you chose a good place.
But yes I have had to stay just out of casting distance from a toon to not get bombarded by the sinker/hook combo. I swear on some occasions they have casted at my line when I cast right. When I cast to the left the asians cast to the left. I have too much of a heart to just cut lines but I have gotten close. Even once I bit off their line to get mine untangled and paddled in to return their gear ASAP.
This year the asian crowds have boats....anyone else notice this?
Oh yeah and the ice season is fun at AFH! Get ready to learn another language. Somehow when the ice is 2 inches thick and you stand too close to them you get the feeling they are talking to you.
