Found this link on the bbc. Its about Bluegills that were gifted to the Emperor of Japan 50 years ago, some escaped and are now running amok throughoutt Japan.

Sounds like a few of the stunted metro lakes.... smile.gif

Can we take the sunnies back and they can have all the carp and milfoil they gave us?

It sounds like they would gladly make that trade too. If only it were that easy.

Made me think of the old saying though,"one mans terrorist is another mans freedom fighter." But that may not really apply to fish.

Yes sir. Make no mistake gentleman. The North American Sunfish is one of the most aggressive fishes on the planet.

They don't complain about their non-native largemouth bass.

Don't forget the other little gift - the snakeheads that are invading the east...nastier than snot rockets and muskies.

Actually I have heard complaints about the Largemouth bass along with the 'gills.

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?

      tried this last year,   not worth it in my opinion.    But I always wondered if I could eat the rusty crayfish.  has anyone tried?
