Fishing: print or the web?

5 posts in this topic

I have one more question for everyone:

Where are you finding QUALITY information about fishing techniques, news and products - fishing forum websites (like FM) or print (In-Fish, Outdoor News)?

I use the web for doing my main research on different lakes and I try to get out to at least one a year of the seminars put out by the FM pro staff for species information.

The web narrows down my lakes and what lures ect. but the mags. give me a new way of fishing.

I find the print media or my local news gives me more and better info on fishing. Some times fisherman can get tight lippd about whats working for them.

Nothing beats Bluewater Bait though. like the old general store might say if they dont have it you dont need it. As far as fishing info goes. and bait and tackle and pop.

Mostly on print.

Techniques are more detailed and technical. Products are promoted on EVERY page in magazines, even within the articles themselves. A lot of news is best in print, and due to forum policies, a lot cannot be discussed because it gets opinionated and political and gets deleted right away.

However, people spill their guts on the internet. Unfortunatly, a lot of posts tell you exactly what, when, where and how. Which in the end is all people need, and its free to boot! A sad reality IMO

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.
