Bad News (Virus on the great lakes)

1 post in this topic

For those of you that like to fish the big big pond Lake Superior please take a look at this thread in the Duluth forums We dont need this and if you agree there is an online petition you can ad your name to here Petition I know there is more than just me that likes to go there so please check it out.

It has to do with the shipping industry and the practice of dumping ballast water from the Ocean, Seas and Great Lakes into Lake Superior. So far we have a list of exotics that have been introduced because of that practice. Lamprey which just about wiped out the Lake Trout, Gobbies, Ruffies, Zebra Mussels and Spiny Water Flies. Now theres a new threat, Viral Hemorrhagic Septicemia, a water born Ebola if you will.

Just an update for those of you that get the outdoor news check out the article in this weeks addition. This can affect a lot of people and could affect allot more than Lake Superior. If you haven't put your name on the petition with the link above please do so if you agree that there needs to be some action taken to prevent this.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
