Ardent Fisherman Objects To Proposed Pan Fish Rules

Former Peshtigo Mayor Al Krizenesky, who is known to fish and fish, reported he is opposed to new pan fish regulations as proposed by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

He has written a letter to Steve Hewett, DNR Fisheries Section Chief, listing his reasons for opposition to the proposed new rules. “ I for one believe the DNR should leave panfishing alone. Keep the rules as they are.” Krizenesky told the Peshtigo Times.

He pointed out that Hewett claims that four 8-inch blue gills produce more fillet meet than 25 blue gills measuring 5-inches. “My question is how can anyone that high up in the department be so wrong. I have found that in going to public meetings on new fish rules, they are attended mostly by people who live on the lakes or are interested in tournament fishing. It is time for the hundreds of fisherman who travel over 100 miles to make their voices heard,” Krizenesky said.

He claims that in the past few years, the DNR has killed the trout stream fishing in Wisconsin. Killed musky fishing with large size limits. Also the change in bass size rules has many lakes overrun with bass.

“Another thing, why should a fishing person drive over 100 miles and be allowed only to keep one walleye. Leave the panfish rules alone.” he said.

Continuing, Krizenesky pointed that families with young children can now under current panfish rules have an opportunity to catch a few fish to eat and the enjoyment of catching a fish.

“Just think of the cost involved to enjoy fishing. There is the cost of a license, boat, motor, equipment, bait, gas to get to a fishing spot and then pay a fee to launch your boat. Then you hope to catch a few fish to eat. All that for just one walleye as new rules proposed by the DNR,” Krizenesky said.

He pointed out that at his age of 78, he should not care about the new proposed rules. If you know how to fish, you can get all the fish you need. “ I am thinking of the young people when I say leave the pan fishing rules as they are. Let them enjoy nature without having to throw fish back into the lakes.” he said.

Krizenesky is a member of several fishing clubs, Wisconsin Fishing Guide, a former business man and past president of the Peshtigo Chamber of Commerce. “Fishing attracts many fishermen and fisherwomen along with children. Fishing is vital to the tourist industry which has been thriving under the current panfishing rules. To keep attracting fishing people, please leave pan fishing alone.”

In conclusion, he expressed appreciation to the Peshtigo Times for providing the public with the information on the proposed pan fishing rules. “ I hope that many people will be at the public hearing in Minocqua on the proposed rules on Tuesday, Aug. 26.” he concluded.

Some of the proposed rules are catching a total of 25 panfish but no more than 10 of any one species or a total of 15 panfish but no more than five of any one species. Also, a total of 25 panfish but no more than five of the sunfish may be over 7-inches in length.

Following the public hearings, the DNR will evaluate for effectiveness and acceptance starting in 2019.
