    A typical night for Ron and John on the Delaware River when it’s hot (80 degree) and extremely muddy (Nebraska rain), July 17, 2009. Caught 8 Carp also. Saw a big beaver eating supper in the Oxbow, big fish scared him and I swear that Beaver walked on water to get away.

    I was at Perry yesterday as well. Let me tell you what I saw coming from the hog trough. I went to the cleaning station around 11:00 am to clean the 4 5# channels that I caught and was upset at what I saw. I dont have a problem with cleaning some fish but them beaners are out of control. There was a line at the fish cleaning station about 6 deep and they all had their limit of 10 person. Most of the fish were 7-10#. There was a pile of cleaned fish on the table on top of what people still had left to clean. They all talked like this was a normal thing. I know Ive seen people over there on weekdays as well. Im not going to sit here and push CPR on people but $**T They are taking way to many fish out of that lake. Beaning is almost cheating and I feel it should be out-lawed or at least better monitored. I can understand older guys that cant through a net. But some of these guys were around my age and there is always dipbait. Im not tring to offend anyone just tring to let people see whats going on. Just my 2 cents on BEANING.

    About 20 boats gets in an area of about 50 yards and chums with old soy beans. Then the put a bean on a small hook and caught fish one after the other.

    In the mid to late 90's, I would see 40-50 boats out there.....EVERY boat taking there limit.

    It was alarming to say the least. Everyone, myself included, thought the fishing would decline.

    I am not positive, but the last I read, KDWP netting results are not reflecting this(for what they are worth:wink:)
    Apparently, if they don't get filleted, them beans make 'em grow fast!

    Hummm. Chumming or beaning is legal in Kansas. I use night crawlers. I do know for a fact that in certain places on the Delaware you do have cell phone coverage and on Friday afternoon's after 6:00 p.m. when you call Operation Game Thief, 1-877-426-3843 you get to talk to a live and friendly human being.

    Yes this has been going on for a long,long time.I have nothing against it but i just wish they didn't keep everything they catch.They do the same thing at Clinton.

    Yes it is legal..

    But let me say this.I was in a tourment a few yrs back at Milford.After the fish were weigh and took down to the lake the fish were released only to swim out and sink to the bottom and roll over.I went out and got most of them to swim off but there were some that wouldn't make it.

    These fish were banged around for 8 hrs and yes in a very large live wells...

    So are we sure all these fish that are caught in tourments and released swim off????


    So where does it stop??

    You know Tom, I was reading the 2002 Catfish Insider Magazine the other night and it said exactly that.

    73% of the fish in that Tourney (Milford Reservoir July2001) were dead within 2 weeks. More, if not all were suspected to die per KSU biologists.

    If I am keeping fish in July/Aug (rarely do now) they go right on ice, if not, they go right back in the water.

    So the point is there's a reason for not having tournaments in hot weather?

    Naw, Josh, the point is that we need to find better ways to hold catfish
    and release them after tournaments. We want them to recover and thrive
    after release. That may take a lot of thinking and experimenting with
    tanks, oxygen levels, temperatures and various additives in the water to
    help them out. If that doesn't work, we may just have to get pictures,
    measurements and release them after five minutes in the boat instead.

    In most Trout Tournament, there is a judge next to each fisherman that weigh's and measure the fish, then the fish is released immediately.
