I just happened to turn the WCCO 4 news on at 5 oclock and they had a live interview with the governor. Just wondering if anyone would be able to find that interview and post it up here. The gov was talking about medical pot, and I am still trying to figure out what he was saying. It seemed like he was very far off into space. It should be part of public service that everyone has to watch that interview before the next election. MN continues to be the laughing stock of electing politicians.

I just watched it on CCO's website. I don't know if Dayton is a drinking man or not, but he sounded like a guy that just spent a few hours on a barstool. Heck I guess I would sound like that too just so I could get a good nap in to get up for fishing at midnight.

He was just trying to make sense to his user voters! Was he up at Gull already? Maybe he's already thrown a few down to start the Fishing opener! wink

I think all you wise guys oughta cool it with the snide Dayton comments. If you look back you will find he has backed sportsmen and the DNR people at most opportunities and he stood tall on a couple of things that benefited outdoors people.

I don't mind if he's a little different....he does things that I believe in and that is what SHOULD matter.

He is terrible.When he was lucid in his earlier days he was hard to understand but now it is just pitiful listening to him. And seriously, how long does it take to recover from hip replacement surgery? He may very well be using medicinal mary jane or possibly crack.

He didn't do anything but mindlessly sign whatever was put in front of him as we have seen the past couple of years. Mentally he's checked out and just does what people (Alida and the Unions) tell him to do.

Only in MN do the people elect a trust fund baby who stated himself that he failed as a US Senator and has shown no leadership whatsoever in his years of "service". I think most realized that Marky really needed to be institutionalized years ago but instead is now just a mindless puppet for ABM and the unions.

It's sad that you would support the abuse and the manipulation of the mentally ill, Ufatz.

The worst part is he is rather on the normal side compared to Mr. Franken. I can tolerate Dayton to a point and can appreciate that he can step away from party lines on occasion. Show me one Al Franken interview that makes sense...

Be Thankful, Peasants

Written by Mitch Berg on 09 May 2014.

Two billion in new taxes.

A 1.2 billion dollar surplus (thanks, GOP majority from 2011-2012!), which means “unexpected” money collected in taxes, and is money that is lost from the economy.

That’s a total of $3.2 billion extra dollars sucked out of the Minnesota economy – about $600 for every man, woman and child in the state, or close to $1,000 for every taxpayer.

And we’re supposed to be thankful that the DFL majority deigns to “give” us $550 million “back”.

That’s about 17 cents on the dollar.

If you gave your cashier a $20 bill for a $15 meal, and you got 85 cents in change, I’m going to guess you wouldn’t be “thankful”…

Still say you boys should be taking it little easier on our "strange" governor;look at what his record has been on the issues that SHOULD matter most to people who post here.

If he is doing the things outdoor people endorse then maybe you could cut him some slack for being less than articulate.

I used to just roll my eyes during the Bush Administration when Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney would be busy gutting environmental programs left and right, allowing some polluters to run amok and all the while this is going on most of the people who post here were RAVING about how wonderful their "war president was.

Surely some of you guys are/were aware of that. The budgets for EPA, BLM and F&W were hacked and chiseled away and it is taking a long time to get them back into shape.

So called "outdoors people" thought Bush was the greatest and he was doing all he could to make some of those agencies virtually powerless.

My guess is our new President Clinton will come down on the side of resources and keep on repairing the damaged programs.

Please share some examples of this so called "Gutting" you speak of.

I'm curious to see what you consider "Gutting" left and right. confused

He has done nothing but made it more expensive to live in this state and followed the Obamacare template to a failed health care system. I'm not sure why anyone would vote for someone like Dayton who didn't even blink (oh wait...does he ever blink?) when signing the $2.4B in tax increases last year. It was easy for him though...his pile of money is tucked away and sheltered out of state. How convenient.

Must be nice to be a trust fund baby. All hail King Dayton.

The Bush administration mastered the art of "bait and switch"...saying one thing while doing another; boasting about environmental policies while quietly gutting and redirecting programs. My guess is 90% of people do not understand how this works and the damage that was done. Obviously I do not have time to list the many instances. But let me toss out a few things and you guys can go look them up.

Bush proclaims strong environmental support-then a few months last does the opposite and who knows? Industry sues to overturn an EPA regulation and the Justice Dept. puts up only feeble defense.

In one year President Bush cut $500 million from EPA; $40 million from BLM; $112 million from U.S. Forest Service; $35 million from Bureau Reclamation. This is in ONE YEAR.

Oil and coal regulations were written, behind closed doors with the aid of industry representatives.

Here's a timely one: The BLM saw dozens of people reassigned to jobs that took away any power they had. An example: several were moved out of theier jobs because they wanted to move cattle and off-road vehicles off sensitive public lands. Bush grabbed headlines by pledging he would not pursue ofshore drilling in Artic Wildlife Refuge....then quietly reversed himself and became a strong booster. He also wanted to drill offshore Florida and only halted that when his BROTHER complained. Bush tried to get oil and gas drilling started in Montana's Lewis and Clark NATIONAL FOREST1 He cut in HALF the number of Superfund waste clean up sites. Bush flagrantly abandoned his Presidential powers under Endangered Species Act and cut protections for fish and fisheries habitat in half a dozen western states. Bush promised $100 million a year to rain forest conservation and then budgeted for none:not a dime. HE boasted of his effort to get $4.9 billion for national parks but didn't bother to point out that most of it was for roads and other construction projects, not for any research or habitat protection

I could go on for pages like this fellas. I believe you will find a terrible record of deception and closed door dealings in the past administration. It goes on and on and some of the meddling got way down into the ranks of plain old work a day federal employees trying to do their jobs.

But then, what can we have expected from a man who described the EPA as "the department of sticks and berries."

Oh, by the way, some of the information above was gleaned from conservation and environmental magazines; the rest just came from memory of those terrible days and how people I knew were jerked around to the point of resigning.

So take it for what it's worth....and keep in mind; this is just scratching the surface.

That is all.

He obviously didn't give up on the turtles when he should have.

And the federal government controls way too much land in the western states anyway. Some of that worthless wasteland could be put to productive use in private hands.

How does a topic about your pill popping governor turn into it being all Bush's fault? Of course Dayton slurs his speech. You would to with all the pills that one-who-thinks-I-am-silly is on.

Well gang, I am not convinced Governor Dayton is a pill-popping, booze sipping ding-dong. I have never heard or read anything from a reliable and unbiased source that convinces me. He may well have had a booze problem at one time but I doubt he does now because it would be hard to function day-to-day in that job.

As for him being a dunce, I have heard him use some fine language in an articulate manner, including words half the yokels cruising these forums would not understand.

He obviously is not comfortable as a public speaker...at least what I have seen. That does not make him an incompetent nor a fool.

Let's watch what he does and nor worry so much about how he gets it done. I am far less impressed with the Minnesota Legislature than Mr. Dayton.

And please: for those who love to make snide remarks about his money; just get over it-you'd be a happy soul content to do nothing but fish if you had his income. The thought of public service would never enter your mind. Don't worry about his money. Worry about YOUR money.

Thank you very much for that material. Not being a long-time Minnesotan and never that interested in MN politics I was not aware of ALL that you provided to this Forum.

Frankly, I am more impressed by Mr.Dayton than I was before reading the MSP Tribune, which is an excellent newspaper. I want some of you guys to have a serious personal talk with yourself and ask if you would have the guts to stand up and confess the things about your life that he has.

I may or may not agree with all his policies but I have a lot more respect for the man. Be assured I know and understand the pressures of the offices he has held and they are not a stroll in the park.

Thanks for the information. Much of it was just rumor to me but remember I am fairly new to MN.

I appreciate your help and I'll bet there are others who learned a few things too.

      Walleye fishing really picked up this weekend.  Had to move around to find the fish but when I did locate them, they were schooled up in a tight cluster.  If I drifted more than 30 feet from the cluster the bite would stop.  Don't know if this is typical of fall fishing but it was sure fun.   Biggest eye I caught was the pictured 23", then the next biggest was only 17" (I think others are really targeting the 18-20" fish).  Pike suckers on a plain red hook were the best, but when I ran out of them, they still bit on chubs (although the fish were smaller).  Stopped at Fuel & Food Saturday afternoon and they were out of pike suckers and chubs, so I just used the last of my small chubs the last day.  Never did try the crawlers that I bought because the bite was good enough on minnows.   Enjoy the fall fishing and the beauty of the lake, and be courteous to other anglers.

      Made it to the brothers cabin this past weekend. We hit  4 lakes. Crappie fishing was great. Lots of 10-12 inch fish. Walleye on Big wolf and Andrusia was fair. Nothing over 16 inches though. Small pike were very active as well. The river was 2-3 feet deep and manageable. Found walleye in depths from 12-20 ft and crappies were 6-14 ft near pencil reeds. Crappies bit on crawlers, minnows and gulp. Got walleyes on fat heads as no one in area had anything other than pike chubs and we only got northerns on them. Wind was bad on Friday and terrible on Saturday. Definitely need to update electronics and trolling motor to get spot lock. My brother has it on his and had 0 problems holding in the wind. Overall fun weekend with 2 meals fish and a burger night at Becida bar.

      On the south end...  A fun week of walleye fishing as the water temps cool to the low 60's and fall colors have started.  The walleye are transitioning to fall locations.  Three different methods used to catch walleyes this week.  Drifting spinners, trolling crankbaits and anchored up and jigging with a minnow, which is becoming more effective each week.   Walleyes setting up across the south shore and with more shiners running, this trend will continue.  Jigging with a frozen shiner or live fathead has really started to be effective.  Give it 30-40 minutes and set up in a different spot if there is no action.   Congrats to all MN Tournament Trail tournament anglers this past week.  The winning team had a 7.52 lb avg per walleye for 10 fish.  There are a lot of big walleyes in Lake of the Woods right now. Daily limit is a combined limit of six walleyes and saugers (with up to 4 being walleyes).   Don't forget the slot, 19.5" - 28" must be returned with one allowed over 28" per day.   Fall is an excellent time to fish walleyes.  If you like the jig bite, anchor up and jig over the side of the boat for a very enjoyable and typically memorable day. Pike are active and most are caught but unsuspecting walleye anglers.  The feedbag is definitely on.   On the Rainy River...   Emerald shiners continue to run in the Rainy River.  Some good runs so far, good angler reports and nice walleyes being caught.  Fall on the river is nice as a small boat will work just fine. Most walleye anglers on the river are anchoring up along an edge or in a hole with a jig and minnow.  There are 42 miles of navigable Rainy River from Wheeler's Point through Baudette to Birchdale with lots of boat ramps.   Sturgeon activity has picked up as well with good fall reports. Up at the NW Angle...   Excellent fishing continues on both sides of the border.  In U.S. waters, deep mud of Little Traverse Bay continues producing walleyes in 24 - 31 feet.  Gold, white and orange spinners with a crawler or a minnow continue to be effective.  As water cools, minnows on some days are outfising crawlers.   Areas with structure continue to hold fish.  18 - 27 feet are good starting points.  Jig and a minnow is the goto on structure and neck down areas. Pike and muskie anglers are locating fish on weedy points using double blade spinners and topwater.  A lot of fish are caught on figure eight. Travel to and from the Angle via vehicle through the 40 miles of Canada is open.  Boating into Canadian waters is now open.  Please note, no live, frozen or dead bait allowed into Canada from the U.S.  The various plastics on a jig are working well.  Contact a NW Angle resort for details. Charter boat transport and float planes are still available through the LOW Passenger Service and Lake Country Air.

      The wind was crazy when I was up for the week.  And talking about lake levels, I had to adjust my Humminbird down 1 foot to make the water level the same as the lake map depth.  Just an FYI.
