Is there anything that you or your brother like, or at least don't have some kind of conspiracy theory about?? I agree with some things that you say and admit that youguys make some valid points and arguments, but banging the same 'ol drum over and over about how the DOW is out to ruin your lives is really getting old. I'm not trying to stir up a hornets nest, just stating my opinion. Everybody that has read your posts on this forum know that you guys know what you're doing when it comes to fishing, but the "Evil Empire is Screwing us over" theme is really getting stale. ??? ???TroutFishingBear said:Haven't read it in the last two years. It used to have some okay information. I always thought that it's hatred (sp) of northern pike always saying to kill them made me angry. It was a pretty biased magazine in many ways. I always liked the local writers and their columns and that's it. I personally loved reading ed marsh but then again if I remember correctly he was a pike killer too, but god bless him he gave great info (even though I fish none of his lakes) and he seemed like a normal guy who loved fishing. The rest of it stunk IMO.
You won't get any argument out of me on the "Brainiac" that they have writing those.jamiehughes said:i don't know about the squaw fish, but in the infisherman article, minnesota actually stocks the pike and they don't necessarily depend on natural reproduction. it is just a good article on how they manage the perch, walleyes,pike and other fish all in the same ecosystem. i'm sure colo has some kind of goofy adgenda about getting rid of pike. all you have to do is try to decipher how they wrote the definition to artificial lures in their new booklet to realize that there is a goofball running things somewhere.
