Bite was tougher today but managed some very pretty fish. Trying to perfect getting pics with the cell phone and then editing them. I love crappie eyes and the color of some bluegills. My favorite fish on the planet.

Good Job Nice Fish good luck out there tomorrow.  Would of joined you guys but tomorrow is a true Trophy hunt shooting for a 10 1/2 or better.  Got plenty of 9-10 inchers lately so let the hunt begin.   Might be setting the bar high as I normally do  but the lake I'm heading to has a restricted limit and has some real brutes. Ive done it before  here so I know its doable. Hope my day goes as well as yours did :grin:

You need to hold them up. The best pictures are with some nice scenery in the back ground! :lol:

Yes, I do miss seeing that Red Pine stand in his photos leech, it definitely adds to the north woods feel of the shot....

      I fully agree that lakes go through cycles but that negates nothing I said.  MNs best walleye fisheries are that way because they have a slot.  Rainy, Winnie, Leach, Mille Lacs, and Red were destroyed and the slots brought them back.  Lake of the woods a slot was put in before it got depleted and that fishery is awesome so easy to catch a limit there and a great mix of small fish and jumbos...just a matter of time for other lakes.  Can you be more specific what lakes you are referring to that have just large fish and no slot?  If it is not one of the well known lakes be careful if you name it here its fished out in 3 years if it does not have a slot guaranteed.

      Fun looked like you guys a blast!  👍

      I don't think it will impact anything... but I also agree it is dumb.  It's not logical that I can buy it on line sight unseen but need to be present at a store.

      Minnesota's best walleye fisheries are anything but stable populations. These populations are constantly cycling with new robust year classes recruiting to the fishery every few years. Harvest of excess spawning stock actually stimulates frequent strong recruitment. The closest thing we have to stable walleye populations are lakes dominated by old fish with low to moderate recruitment replacing natural mortality from the aging population.

      In other words, she don't trust you in any store alone???🤔😅🤭

      Guys, going back to the original post, the DNR did this to be in compliance with state and federal laws, not just be a PIA.   It doesn’t have to make sense, it just has to make code, as my saying goes.   We don’t normally make a special trip to buy our combo license; we just pick it up at our best convenience either heading to the lake or doing other shopping.  It’s really not going to be that significant of an issue for us since we do travel and shop together fairly regularly. 🙂

      The fundamental difference between a portable air conditioner and an evaporative cooler (swamp cooler) lies in a principle of operation. A swamp cooler passes the air through a mesh filter, which receives water from the tank and in the process of heat exchange the air temperature decreases. In a portable air conditioner, the air is cooled through the operation of a compressor, and hot air is removed from the room into a special opening or window to the street using a corrugated air duct. At the same time, an evaporative air cooler humidifies the air, and a portable air conditioner dehumidifies it. The performance of portable air conditioners may be low, since a duct is usually not equipped with thermal insulation, and warm air from the street freely penetrates through the slightly open window, but the temperature drop of the air supplied to a room is still high. To increase the efficiency of a swamp cooler, it is recommended to place a unit near an open window so that the air humidity does not exceed natural values. Accordingly, a mobile air conditioner can be recommended to those who need intensive cooling of a room, and an evaporative cooler to those who need a climate complex and softer air cooling, and should take into account the temperature and humidity characteristics of the air prevailing in a place of use.

      Actually I already addressed this but will state it more directly.  Having a slot state wide ensures we maintain a stable population of fish in each lake that cannot be removed.  It takes a long time for a lake to recover a species once it gets overfished and this is not just the big lakes and it is happening all over the place.  Upper Red Lake is good case study (I can cite case studies of smaller lakes as well but won't to protect those lakes).  Though to be honest I loved the HUGE crappies that was a unique opportunity and I was quite disappointed when they turned it back into another me too walleye lake so I have not been back since.  So, to what I said earlier, I see the value of it but there are trade-offs and I don't necessarily agree or disagree to it.  Once you remove one species another will take over and personally I am not that picky so I adapt.  If I were focused on walleye I would have a different view.
