(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.

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!

      walked that creek to the river many years!!!  again home area!!!!

      Bring your spinning rod and fish for walleyes or white bass at the confluence. Wherever the river is pounding the shoreline fish the current breaks for big flatties. Heavy fiberglass rod with a sturdy baitcaster and 50 lb power pro line will be effective. Fish the head of snags for channels. Setup just like a Lindy rig for them with 1 oz to 5 oz no roll sinker and a big live bait like a 7" bullhead or even larger sucker for flatties. Use cut strips of bait off a large sucker or something similar for channels. Frogs can be good too. Have fun.
