Did anyone hear about a DNR bust in Waite Park I guess it was on WCCO but I believe it was WCCO out of Alexandria. I looked on the WCCO website and could not find anything also the Times site and nothing there just wonder what it was all about. Phil

You know what's funny about this story is that one of the person is repeat offender being busted over and over again and still has no clue that he's going to get busted for constantly breaking the law and continue's to do so. How dumb are these lawbreakers?

Hopefully this will be a wake up call...

Hsven't you ever heard the phrase "dumb crooks"? They usually are to stupid to do things right. That is why that are caught all the time and still continue to keep doing it.

There was a story one time about a 20 time offender that the mother said "the cops are always picking on my son".

When someone shows obvious disregard for this stuff, does the penalty increase? Not allowing him to get a license obviously hasn't worked. So how do you prevent him from doing it again? Can the DNR impose stiffer penalties or confiscate car, boat, fishing gear?

Its to bad, becuase its only hurting the fishery that they are on. I dont understand why people have to do this. Im glad they got into trouble, and that it was handled the right way!!

A little jail time might help. A few months with the hard cores in lockup might wise 'em up. Same old story, repeat offenders, repeat offenders, why is that? Because they keep getting thier wrists slapped with no hard consequences. Bill

I agree a little jail time would be the best thing. It seems like every year there are people getting busted for gross over limits. And thise are only the people getting caught maybe if it was a manditory 30 days in the grey bar motel for the first offence and 60 days for the 2nd people might think twice about keeping more than there limit. And how about loosing your privilage to hunt and fish in MN for life added on.

I also agree that jail time would probably stop most of them but loosing their privilage to hunt and fish won't stop them. The are already breaking the law so what would stop them fishing and hunting without a license. At least thats what I think.

The problem I see is that taking thier fishing privelages away is not a deterent to stop breaking the law. Some day the penalties will need to be so severe that one in no way will continue to break the law. So many times, its a repeat offender which proves the penalties are not working.

The other problem is that many children are not given the example or direction that is needed when they are younger and very impressionable. Kinda that monkey see, monkey do theory.

jail probably wouldnt work because they would be put in county jail with the other crooks with petty crimes. throw them into Lino Lakes with the killers for a while, then they will wisen up.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
