bmc (Can we change our plans to Thursday?)

8 posts in this topic

Hey Brian,

I was wondering if we could change are plans from Wednesday to Thursday. I could even come up your way Wednesday night so we could get out first thing in the morning.

Post a reply or give me a call later. What ever works for you. I'm at work today if my cell doesn't pick up your call.

Hey Tom,

I may have to head to Cities Thurs. or Friday for work. I should know Monday and will give you a call when I know for sure. Still haven't had a chance to get out yet. Tuesday will be my first day on the ice. How much snow did you get, I'd say 6-8" here in D.R.

Brian,

I'll be at the Fire hall on Monday. I'm not sure if I gave you that number. If you have it you can call me there anytime before 9:00pm. If not leave a message on my cell and I'll get back to you.

I'll talk to you about what happened with Wednesday then. As far a snow goes I'm guessing we got about 12 inches or so.

I'll talk to you soon!!

I'll post up a report Lisa as "poor" BD110 is probably trying to catch a few winks as he's fished at least 5 days this week! Poor guy! grin.gif We hit the SW side of the lake, out in front of where the Miss. comes in. We set up in about 8 fow around 9:30 am and fished till about 4 pm. We ended up with our 6 northerns 2 just under 30" and 4 in the 25" range give or take an inch. All caught on tipups with dead smelt and 1 on a live golden shiner. We also caught some perch in the area, but nothing worth bringing home. The DNR creel survey guy said we had the best luck out of anybody that was in that area. About 8" of ice and a little slush where we drilled our holes. About 8-10" of snow on top so going was tough w/ an ATV pulling a trailer, but we just pulled Tom's Otter house out and didn't have a problem. Also there was a pressure ridge forming about 100-200 yds out from shore, running north and south.

As always Tom, it was a great trip and thank god we got our pizza at Blueberry Bowl before they ran out of gas!!! grin.gif

Brian,

That was a great report and you are correct I'm heading out the door in 30 min. for day number 5 on the ice. It's a tough job but someone has to do it. I'll be looking forward to taking the day off tomorrow.

      Update: APR 27, 2017 — We requested a meeting with school administration to see HOW we could make this work - how we could break down barriers and open pathways. Sadly, we were declined. We are moving forward and will be presenting our petition signatures, research and plan to the school board on May 8th. Please help us get to 500 Plus!!  signatures! Thank you!! JKJKODA

      The Department of Natural Resources celebrates Arbor Day on Friday, April 28, and Arbor Month in May by recognizing the health benefits of trees in Minnesota.  Trees and forests provide numerous health benefits such as: Helping reduce skin cancer. Decreasing mental stress and promoting healing. Cleaning the air and reducing childhood asthma rates. Reducing stressful noises by 50 percent. Providing healthy fruits and nuts. “Getting your daily dose of trees is good for your health and easy to do,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “You can climb a tree, go camping, sit under a tree, take a hike or visit a forest.” To encourage people to get a daily dose of trees, the DNR is launching the #31DaysOfTrees challenge during Arbor Month. Simply post a photo or video while getting a daily dose of trees on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Use the hashtag #31DaysOfTrees and include @MinnesotaDNR when posting to Facebook. Participation will be tracked using hashtag #31DaysOfTrees. Participants may win one of five state parks permits and have 10 trees planted in their honor in a Minnesota state forest. The more times a person posts enjoying their daily dose of trees, the more chances they’ll have to win. Participants must be 18 years or older and a Minnesota resident to win a prize. Visit the DNR’s Arbor Month webpage to watch videos of Minnesotan’s getting their daily dose of trees and how trees improve health. Additional details on the #31DaysOfTrees challenge and a listing of local Arbor Day celebrations can also be found on the Arbor Month webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources invites anyone with an interest in recreational trail systems and motorized recreation in the Beltrami Island State Forest in Beltrami, Lake of the Woods and Roseau counties to attend a public meeting on Wednesday, June 28, to review a set of proposals that include changes to trail systems in the state forest. The meeting will be from 6 to 8 p.m. at the DNR Forestry Office, 804 Cherne Drive NW, Warroad, with a presentation at 6:30 followed by time for questions and answers, map review and comments. Draft recommendations aim to improve trail sustainability and to enhance recreation opportunities. Proposed changes include adding new trails and trail connections, designating new hunter-walking trails and undesignating unsustainable minimum maintenance roads. The draft proposals reflect feedback gathered during an open house in June 2016. The forest is classified as “managed” with respect to motor vehicle use, which means that forest roads and routes are open to motor vehicles unless posted closed. The DNR does not propose changing the “managed” classification. Anyone unable to attend the June 28 meeting can review the project documents online on the trail revision project page and submit written comments through Friday, July 28. Comments received at the meeting and during the public comment period will be used to develop a final recommendation that will be submitted to the DNR commissioner for approval. Changes to state forest trail designations must be made by commissioner’s order and published in the State Register. Written comments may be submitted by fax to 651-297-1157, by email to foresttrailplanning.dnr@state.mn.us, or by mail to Joe Unger, Parks and Trails Division, Minnesota DNR, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN  55155-4039. For more information, call 651-259-5279 or 218-308-2372. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
