fillet weights, fish management, and selective harvest

In-Fisherman proposed the concept of selective harvest in the late 1980s. It encourages keeping more numerous smaller fish for table while releasing less abundant larger fish to sustain good fishing. As we’ve so often said, fish are nutritious and delicious, and when they’re harvested wisely (selectively) they’re a renewable resource. As In-Fishermen, we can continue to enjoy fine meals as we also support fine-quality fisheries that host good fishing for larger fish. Many anglers, though, are most interested in just harvesting fish. It can be hard to convince them that management approaches like lowering bag limits to increase fish size are in their interest. They often believe the inevitable outcome will be a reduced amount of food to take home (in terms of fillet yield). One of the most ingenious methods…

bits & pieces

Growing Bigger Pike Field Studies— For several reasons, managing populations of northern pike has proved to be among the more challenging issues in fishery management. For one, more efforts have traditionally been applied to studying and managing other species, notably trout, muskie, bass, and walleye. Second, pike populations are remarkably diverse in their size structure, growth rates, and maximum size potential. Third, reductions in wetlands have reduced pike spawning habitat in many waters, while eutrophication has reduced summer habitat, and a warming climate has limited the suitability of some waters for large pike that prefer water temperatures below 70°F. Finally, anglers who pursue pike also are diverse in their attitudes and focus. In search for solutions, a team of biologists from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) conducted a study of…

digging deep   for big bass

For decades, bass “plugs” sported short metal bills that made them wobble when cranked. Before the revelations of sonar, bass fishing was almost exclusively a shallow affair. Buck Perry began to crack the code in the early 1950s, using his metal Spoonplugs that were built to run at a certain depth when trolled, to both chart bottom topography and catch fish. Carl Lowrance’s sonar invention played well with structure theories and offshore fishing began in earnest. But for years, crankbaits ran no deeper than 10 feet. Crankbait Timeline In the mid-1980s, Illinois lure designer and avid angler Tom Seward turned his attention to plumbing the depths of his local reservoirs. His efforts resulted in the Hot Lips Express crankbait, with several features that gave it unprecedented diving power. Its Tri-Lobe-Pow erLip was…
