cutting reeds

5 posts in this topic

Can I cut reeds down and use them to hide my boat or is it against the law to cut them down.

I think it depends on where you hunt.

I have read before that you can cut aguatic vegetation as long as it is above the water line...no ripping them out by the roots. Not sure if there's certain areas such as WPA's, WMA's etc. that it's illegal.

If you just bend them over it it makes the cover twice as thick. I also leave a few straglers so it doesn,t look like someone took a hedge trimmer to the reeds.

With legal questions of this nature, I have often found that if I email the DNR using the "contact us" link at their website, they are very responsive. Most times I'll get a response within a day or two. You might want to try this.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
