U of M Lead Survey

3 posts in this topic

Got this lead survey last week in the mail- anyone else get one? If so, is this survey more than likely going to mean the end of lead shot in southern MN?

It's to gauge your opinions. I believe that is Dr. David Fulton's study? The study doesn't make decisions about future regulations but it judges how the public thinks about lead.

Transitioning out of lead is just a matter of time as has been discussed here on FM. Someone in MN DNR told me that it will happen in the next 15 years and it will just be how quickly the state chooses to act. IMO, the survey just tells them how ready the public is for the change. Does MN want to be one of the first to go nontoxic and set an example or be last and dragged into it?

      I have been out the last 3 weekends without success.  Although I do know my boat and equipment are all in working order!  Water has stayed in the low to mid 50's during this period.  I have fished Balyntine, Francis, and Big Jefferson.   I have fished shallow, suspended, and deep.  Having fun and know I'll soon be in the zone!

      Tomorrows weather is looking nice, after that not so much.  The big boat is still in winter storage and BC's boat is getting a new transom.  So it might be put the dock in and work on the transom kinda weekend.

      So, opener is only two weeks away.  Who's going to make the trip to Cass and Kitchi?  And the big question, with this nice spring weather pattern we are experiencing.  Is it going to finally be a nice opener?
