(I sent this email to all the senitors and represenitives today, so we will see what they think.)

I support Bill #hf242.

I am contacting you on the subject of the 2 line bill to be discussed on Thursday the 22nd of February 2001.

I feel the state and the public in general would benefit from the two line bill passing as it would encourage more out of state anglers to fish Minnesota waters and spend more vacation dollars.

This would not effect the population of the fish in the state as the creel take is established as are protective slot limits to conserve and protect the fishery. A limit is a limit no mater how many lines you use to fill it.

As a guide on the Red River system on the border between ND/MN I see anglers with this concern make the choice of what state to license in based on the fact ND has a 2 line system in comparison to MN and it's 1 line. I believe you are loosing revenue to this and vacation dollars as well.

Personally I believe if a angler has the choice to use 2 lines he may only exercise that right 20% of the time, but the option to do so is a major concern to many.

A option also would be a to pay a extra fee to use a second line but it to would apply to a total creel possession limit not expand upon it in any way. This option may raise extra revenue for the MN DNR and the fisheries division to expand stocking of fish in MN waters.

I support Bill #hf242.

Thank You for your time.

Ed,
Do you have an email database for all the reps and senators? If so, how can I get a hold of that, would love to do a mass mailing like that on this subject.
Thanks

I went to the web addy in the above post and hit on the senitors email link.

I had to do them one at a time by copying the email and paisting it. That took about 15 minutes by just going straight down the list. Don't know who is for or against so I just hit them all. At least the see a opinion that way.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!

      For all the stuff I thought I had at my fingertips to pack, I sure am taking all week to get it done!  At least I have all my supplies.  I just keep tinkering on this and that, not getting it bagged up!   Leaving tomorrow morning around 9 and should have the entire afternoon to scout our top areas.  We’ll land somewhere in the northern third of the state.
