This says Norway is the same. It also shows Games is fine for

recreation and eating fish undetermined. They are connected?

This also says Mille Lacs fish unfit to eat, but okay to recreation on the lake.

It also shows that green is too polluted to eat fish out of the Minnesota DNR has the guidelines for fish consumption posted on the lake finder portion of their website refer to that for consuming fish!

The fish in this lake have not been tested. Since none of Minnesota’s lakes tested so far have proven safe, you should follow Department of Health Guidelines for consuming fish from this or any other Minnesota lake.

Every lake in minnesota will show up as either untested or unsafe for eating fish.

Everyone quit fishing! If you read the fish consumption advisories on the DNR web site they have guidlines for children and women of child bearing age to see how much they can eat. The DNR has info on almost all lakes. You also have to look at the source of the info. They have an agenda.

"You also have to look at the source of the info. They have an agenda."

An agenda? The DNR? You mean cleaning up our lakes? HAHAHA! What a foolish statement. That pesky DNR! How dare they show concern for water quality. I suppose they are just saying there is mercury & phosphorus in the water to ensure that they have jobs in the future? That seems to be the way to denigrate anything relating to science these days. How about this- When are we going to do something about the agricultural drainge that flows right into Diamond? Drive around that lake, it is gross how many fields are tiled right into the inlets. From the DNR website:

"Residential development has occurred throughout the entire shoreline area with the exception of the southeast portion of Dogfish Bay. Agricultural row crop drainage into the lake occurs via several inlets/tiles from various locations throughout the lake.

Long term water quality and clarity trends of Diamond indicate an increasingly degraded system."

I would say that report is accurate. I've seen cows in the lake in the past. I've been stuck on mats of weeds out there as well. But if that is what you find appealing- an overgrown weed and mud pit- then by all means, you go enjoy it. I think your comment was irresponsible and uneducated.

It's not the DNR's site. He said they had an agenda, he didn't say it was a bad agenda. Cool off.

I agree with this report. DO NOT EAT the swordfish, shark, or the muskies, in green??? I would love itif swordfish and sharks did swim in green. Report must be from PETA, and not the good like People Eating Tasty Animals

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
