THIS IS CRAZY!
« on: Nov 27, 2007, 02:14 PM »
Most people are probably already aware of the new bait regs but I just found out today. Should be an interesting year. Whats everybody think?

Bait dealers will be few and far between this year.  I mostly fish New York, where they implemented some of these regulations last year, Vermont's are a bit tougher.  Looks like its time to put away the tip ups and break out the jigging rods.
A bent rod is a good rod!

Well, I've told a couple people, but this is why some enterprising folks should have been converting their farm ponds into bait ponds, getting disease free certifcation and sell bait in the winter. But it is probably too late now...

Hey i dont like these regs either, i think they flat out suck. but you know what would suck even more, not having any fish to catch. so fine dont buy a license more fish for me to catch or you can go out and buy a jig and rod and a box of maggots go out and have some fun. hope to see you on the ice.

Totally right.  From what I read the virus can survive in water for a week or more.  Setting the rules before ice-in was much better than waiting until the season was in full swing. 

If you can't find bait.  Jig it up.  It just means leaving the house an hour earlier.  The north half of the state is polluted with smelt, dink perch are pretty much everywhere, use some crawlers, or preserved bait. 

Country boy can survive.

You think we got it bad here... No way. We are spoilt when it comes to fishing compared to other countries.... Take Australia for example, which has been in a 10 year drought.... Inland lakes are at an average capacity of 30%, and some areas have a water supply of 90 days before having to rely on well water.
