Night Bowfishing

Recommended Posts

SneakAttack

Was just going thru the regs for 2008 and noticed that night bowfishing will be allowed on selected lakes between June 1st thru August 31st. Anyone out there have a list or know where to find a list of these "selected" lakes? Thank You

the list is on the dnr website. I dont have the link in front of me.

Everyone needs to be very respecfull and use there best behavior. The DNR has the abillity to imediatly take a lake off the list if there are complaints from residents. So dont fish near homes and cabins. Also there are a few lakes that are highly developed and makes no since why these lakes are on the list. Other than the dnr is trying to set up a trap to take away night fishing. The Land of Lakes Bowfishing Association has work with the DNR for three years to get this law passed.

there are alot bowfisherman in MN who have lights on there boat now how would take you out. Or a cheap way is to hook up a spot light to a battery and go out with two people. one guy holds the light while the other guy shoots. Thats how they shoot bighead carp down south.

This link should get you to the rule description and lake list, I believe this should be the final list for this year. As others have stated, use common sense. Watch your decibels if using a generator, don't shine lights at houses, don't leave fish in the lake or on shore lines. The LLBA is contacting many of the lake associations to notify them of the rule change and let them know what to expect from night bowfishing rigs. Also to expect a big increase in amount of unwanted carp removed from the lakes.

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      Good idea on the silicone spray definelty something to do every spring a big help to keep things sliding nicely. I use that stuff on anything that slides. On telescoping flip over poles for example.

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.
