OutdoorMN News - Workshops for aeration system operators offered in Windom, Hutchinson and Waterville

Recommended Posts


Workshops are available this month for operators of lake aeration systems, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
The workshops offered in Windom, Hutchinson and Waterville will provide opportunities to discuss policies, expectations for the upcoming season, as well as address changes in application and permitting procedures. It will also provide an opportunity to get questions answered regarding policy, process or operation.

State statute requires that all aeration system operators attend workshops as deemed necessary in order to receive a permit. At least one operator per system is required to attend a workshop.

Workshops will be offered:
Oct. 23, 6:30 p.m.
Windom Community Center

Those unable to attend the workshops are urged to contact Amanda Yourd, aeration program coordinator, 651-259-5087 or Durel Carstensen, fisheries habitat specialist, 507-359-6046.

Aeration systems are operated in shallow lakes that are vulnerable to winterkill conditions. The DNR is the permitting agency for operators of aeration systems.

      It is definitely getting down to the wire. I want to try and get out one more time if possible! I love ice fishing, but the fall bite has been hot.

      Be careful on public land traps tend to disappear. Don’t set the traps in the open and make another path to check your traps. With duck season going on use traps that will not hold dogs. I like setting banks with mink attractor or 220’s set in rat runs.

      I am looking to start a line this year since I travel 50 miles o e way for work. Looking for any advice and tips. I have some state land I would like to set on. Mostly mink and rats I believe are my targets. Thanks in advance

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.
