Eatin fish out of Diamond?Read this

This says Norway is the same. It also shows Games is fine for

recreation and eating fish undetermined. They are connected?

This also says Mille Lacs fish unfit to eat, but okay to recreation on the lake.

It also shows that green is too polluted to eat fish out of the Minnesota DNR has the guidelines for fish consumption posted on the lake finder portion of their website refer to that for consuming fish!

The fish in this lake have not been tested. Since none of Minnesota’s lakes tested so far have proven safe, you should follow Department of Health Guidelines for consuming fish from this or any other Minnesota lake.

Every lake in minnesota will show up as either untested or unsafe for eating fish.

load of [PoorWordUsage]! I think I'll take my chances being that I take maybe 3 meals out of the lake each year.

planning to get out there and try and find some walleyes and perch this weekend! heard the crappie bite has about fizzled out but have caught plenty of those this winter already.

Everyone quit fishing! If you read the fish consumption advisories on the DNR web site they have guidlines for children and women of child bearing age to see how much they can eat. The DNR has info on almost all lakes. You also have to look at the source of the info. They have an agenda.

"You also have to look at the source of the info. They have an agenda."

An agenda? The DNR? You mean cleaning up our lakes? HAHAHA! What a foolish statement. That pesky DNR! How dare they show concern for water quality. I suppose they are just saying there is mercury & phosphorus in the water to ensure that they have jobs in the future? That seems to be the way to denigrate anything relating to science these days. How about this- When are we going to do something about the agricultural drainge that flows right into Diamond? Drive around that lake, it is gross how many fields are tiled right into the inlets. From the DNR website:

"Residential development has occurred throughout the entire shoreline area with the exception of the southeast portion of Dogfish Bay. Agricultural row crop drainage into the lake occurs via several inlets/tiles from various locations throughout the lake.

Long term water quality and clarity trends of Diamond indicate an increasingly degraded system."

I would say that report is accurate. I've seen cows in the lake in the past. I've been stuck on mats of weeds out there as well. But if that is what you find appealing- an overgrown weed and mud pit- then by all means, you go enjoy it. I think your comment was irresponsible and uneducated.

It's not the DNR's site. He said they had an agenda, he didn't say it was a bad agenda. Cool off.

I agree with this report. DO NOT EAT the swordfish, shark, or the muskies, in green??? I would love itif swordfish and sharks did swim in green. Report must be from PETA, and not the good like People Eating Tasty Animals

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
