Any word on the start of the Cutfoot Sioux stripping station?

Brainerd took the state's first eggs on Saturday. I would guess Cutfoot will be up and running by the end of the week. Call Grand Rapids area office 218-999-7821.

They put up the trap on Sunday and I assumed they started yesterday or today. I don't know if they allow observation but maybe if you park at the access on the other side of 46 and talk nice to the owners of Cutfoot Sioux Inn they'll let you observe a little closer to the action.

No need to park on the other side of 46. Drive into the Onegum (sp)camp grounds and walk right out on the dock. Unless things have changed the DNR has always let people come out and watch.

150 Quarts - Holy Smokes !!

Ya wonder if they missed out by a few days or more.

This is good for other lakes, but one wonders if it robs Winnie too much...
