Yup, and at the time when I would explain to them that chumming was illegal in WI they couldn't believe it. I don't think it really helped as much as they all tried to convince me it did. I think it boosted their confidence more than anything. Most of the folks I have seen doing this sucked at fishing overall. They seemed lazy.
