Deadhead-DNR Meeting

5 posts in this topic

Deadhead, do you think you could post the info for the DNR meeting in DL? I just saw a little about it and said that the DNR wanted input about creating slot limits on some Becker county lakes. I think it said they were going to hold the meeting at the tech college. Thanks.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will hold a public meeting to solicit comments on proposals to implement special fishing regulations on several Becker County lakes. The DNR proposes to implement the following regulations:

A possession limit of five sunfish - Eunice, Maud, Little Toad, and Little Cormorant Lakes.

A possession limit of five crappie, with a minimum size limit of 10-inches - Eunice, Maud and Little Cormorant Lakes. A 24 to 36-inch protected slot limit for northern pike with one over 36 inches allowed in a possession limit of three - Eunice, Maud, and Little Toad Lakes.

A 12-inch maximum size limit for bass with one allowed over 20 inches - Eunice and Maud Lakes.

A 17-inch minimum size limit for walleye - Little Cormorant Lake.

Catch and release for smallmouth bass on the Otter Tail River from Hubble Pond Dam to Little Pine Lake (approximately 33 river miles).

The open house style meeting will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on August 23, 2007 at the Minnesota State Community and Technical College, Room C103, 900 Highway 34 East, Detroit Lakes, MN 56501. The public may also provide input for the Otter Tail River regulation during a statewide open house at the DNR Central Office, located at 500 Lafayette Road in St. Paul on Sept. 27 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
