I fish with worms often. Wormula is what some of us refer to it. This excursion was for dog dogs, aka dogula, aka bowfin.

First you use wormula to catch chubula to next catch the DOGULA.

The Frogy Bottom Bitch (FBB) was not nice. She thinks she owns the public boardwalk in Northfield. She even put up no fishing signs on public property. She called the cops on me and the stupid cop took her side even though she doesn't even have a permit to serve customers and hog the public boardwalk. I was a car's length away from patrons not on her property even if you drew a property line on the boardwalk and pretended she had access.

Did you straighten it out with the cop?

The cop was an asshole. The owner did not produce the "permit" she says she has and the cop suggested I could be charged for disorderly conduct for raising my voice even though she did too. Cop said regardless if she or her patrons don't feel safe she calls the cops. She yells at every fisherman near her establishment. I felt gross. When she saw me she charged at me and started screaming "You can't fish here!"

Sounds like Rainbow Creek. Every landowner has a different story.... Finally lost my patience and called their bluff last time. They didn't like that.

Nice looking Bowfins Mark! I used to catch those when I was a kid fishing the sloughs along the Wisconsin river.

Urban fishing must have it's particular difficulties. Law enforcement officers are often bit weak on waterway access issues and laws, but are keen on keeping the peace and avoiding future conflicts. Issues like this will keep cropping up until they're resolved. Often the problem is just a lack of understanding of the laws and regulations. Perhaps contact the local PD and see if they have a conflict resolution officer (or department) to help straighten it out before something bad happens between this person and a fisherman. These days, things tend to spin out of control in a heartbeat.

I ran into a similar problem a few years back with a land owner. Long story short, he was wrong about the stream access laws, and I had committed a minor trespassing violation. A local cop, who thankfully was up on the regs, contacted the land owner and I later called him to apologize for the trespass. Today, I'm in good standing with the landowner and he allows me to cross his fence to access the stream. I don't think we'll be exchanging x-mas cards, but at least were on good terms.

Good luck.

OK backwaters brethren. You are King of the Dogula. I got super happy about 28 but you have toppled me.
