Ducks and Milfoil

6 posts in this topic

Did anyone see tonight on the news that they are suspecting ducks or birds on transporting milfoil? They said that they have found milfoil in a few lakes around the cities where boats have rarely gone. I tried to find it on kstp.com but they must not have posted it yet.

Yes, I saw it. The theme was a sense of surprise which I don't understand. What surprise? Seems to me that waterfowl would be a likely source of the spread of both weeds and fish. That isn't too say that boats aren't a good way to spread it either and we still need to continue to do our part to minimize the spread.

They're the type of people who don't want to believe that strange weeds in their garden come from seeds in bird poop.

Well I for one was at a surprise! Surprised that they didnt think about it or even considerit before! I believe All animals are guilty of transporting these weeds either by seeds or by bits and pieces of weeds.

here is the story from KSTP

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true
