Rod Grams Dist. 8

3 posts in this topic

Okay I am not going to try and start this whole politcal debate. But I find it interesting this whole GOP is for Hunting and DFL are against. Okay Rod Grams has proposed this new bill he wants to work on if he beats out Jim Oberstar. He wants to cut all restriction on Developments that involve Wetlands. Stating that All wetlands in the path of Devolopment can be destoyed without rules or regualations. And I Have to ask how will this improve Duckhunting? Honestly I think people have to wake up and look at more than just the NRA to establish pro or against hunting canidates. I did read this last night in the Outdoor news and the editor of this article seems to be as sick as I am. I havn't figured how this will make Duck hunting better in the state? Maybe someone can help me out here?

I didn't hear anything on that, but I do know this time around I'm researching the canidates more than what I did in the past in terms of outdoor issues and how they voted for dedicated funding,etc. I don't care if they are Rep. Dem. or Indep. this time. I mostly vote Rep. , but I'm getting tired of the some boloney. We all need to research this time around.

I am sick of them just saying this or that. For govenor we have two canidates that both support hunting and fishing strongly. Yet People say Hatch is againt all hunting simply because he is DEM. I am more worried about Schools, Healthcare, Roads, Transportation, the well being of our state. Cutting funds to these isn't always the answer when it is apparrent we are Falling behind the Norm for a High Quaility MN. I ask all others to Join and actually look at the issues all the issues and decide on that when casting a vote!

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
