I don't know for sure, but I do know that foster arends is electric only so i would guess that those two would be the same. But like I said , I don't know. confused.gif

The rowing team also runs a gas motor on Silver Lake as well.

i will clear up the confusion. For the average joe's like me and you we have to use electric. If you want to use gas powered you have to apply to use it and get some sort of conditional use permit. if you want to know the law about it there is a sign next to the access behind the fire station. i can only speak for chester and silverlake however. ike

Yeah, somehow I don't think "I need to go fishing" would qualify for special gas motor permit on Silver Lake.

I have a Porta-Boat coming any day now. Plan to use electric for sure but am thinking about getting a little 5 or 6 hp motor.

Let me know if you are interested in a '75 Mercury 7.5hp motor.

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      I don't personally own a smmity sled but I've herd many great things about them.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.

      Very disappointing for the resorts as well as anyone else with a financial interest in the lake.  Me?  I release 99% of what I catch anyways, so the rule doesn't affect me much at all....well, I suppose it means I'll have my favorite flats all to myself for at least one more year.  I just really, really wish they'd let us troll after dark in the fall.    Why walleye fishermen aren't more amenable to catch and release, especially on a lake like Mille Lacs that's been on fire for, what, three years now, is beyond me.  Who wouldn't want to go and catch dozens of fish a day even if you have to let them go?
