Motor use & restrictions link - Statewide

1 post in this topic

I finally got a link from the DNR that displays motor use and restrictions for all lakes in Minnesota. This is especially good for those of us in the metro area where there are lots of lakes off-limits to gas motors. However, there are apparently lots of use restrictions around the state.

Here is the website for all of the surface use regulations for the state:

      How big are the hooks you're using, wookie?   Make sure they're big enough, especially if you're using big minnows.    I also use heavier line than most people (10 lb flouro) on our rattle reels so I can set the hook with a bit of gusto without worrying about breaking off.  I might get a few less bites than my friends using 4 lb or 6 lb test, but in the long run I bet we both get the same number of fish on the ice.

      I have read that mercury levels are a reason there is no commercial harvest on vermilion. But it was probably the same thing you read as I have not found a second source of that. There is commercial harvest of rustys on other Minnesota lakes so there must be a reason it's not done here.    For or what it's worth, the DNR has suggestions on how much fish to eat because of mercury.
