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?

      there is a mess being created out there ladies and gentleman. Be careful. Slush is sneaky. It looks like March out on the ice, not January. Deep slush and standing water, tricky conditions for vehicles and people. Saw a lot of flooded houses today in four mile bay.    Fishing for our group was the same as it's been all season. So Slow It Hurts.   But it sure was fun to be able to fish outside.    On a side note, I picked up nearly a dozen boards left behind from wheelhouses. With all this water and slushy conditions, I agree boards are needed. Just please take them with you or chisel them out. These things can cause a lot of damage to some expensive equipment come open water....

      I feel like every time I ice fish in the rain the fish are going nuts...Went out today on a lake in the Duluth area and just pounded the crappies and gills(100+fish)..All the gills were 8-9" and the crappies were 10-12"... Best bait was a glow majum jig with a glow plastic...
