But nothing how it used to be..... any ideas of what happend?
IGNORANT FISHERMEN who "slaughter full tailgates" of perch!!!!!! And....they're the first to complain where's the fish?
The more you fish around here, the more you will learn this...if you have an open mind.
Fishing pressure is REAL and as more people move here.... the more the pressure.
CATCH and RELEASE most of your creels and we will all be happy!!!!!!!!!!
