(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.

      good news, I heard earlier that it was under consideration.

      Looking at the latest images, the lake looks pretty iced over... are there any areas of thin ice / open water to be found? Not looking to fish, need to test some safety gear with a group. Any river mouths open or areas between Duluth and Tettegouche?
    • Bigfatbert
      Yup !!   Also note the new one over change to 26”... it’s currently 28” 18”-26 must be immediately released , and one walleye over 26” may be included daily and possession. Kab , Namakan, Sand Point , Crane . These changes start on the 2019 opener .

      So after the 8” of snow the other day the lakes are a huge mess. I was out for a snowmobile ride yesterday and went to a lake not to far from home. I like to ride out there a couple times a week. So I made a loop around the lake and the snow was about knee deep but had no issues. I was just about ready to head home and checked out an area I like to fish. Well.... I jumped a plowed road bank and sink in about 1 foot of water and slush. I pinned my sled and barley crawled along about 50 years to dry snow. So my weekend plans of fishing are done. This was a smaller lake so I’m sure all lakes are impassable. I have what I think id a good ice fishing sled. A Polaris 600 with a 136” track never had an issue before but with all the snow and slush now there’s no way I’ll be able to fish. The snowmobile trails haven’t beeen grommed after the last snow and I’m getting sick of riding the ditches. Anyone else annoyed with all this snow now? Thanks Mother Nature I now have nothing to do this weekend! 😥

      Way to let "Quasimoto" go and perpetuate his/her goofy genes...  If I catch a bunch of funny-looking, humpy 13.5 inchers in the future, I'm blaming you! 😁  (...as opposed to the scrawny 9 inchers I'm lucky to catch...) Poor thing looks like it's gonna get stuck in the ice-hole!

      I usually keep my sonar unit in the house because I put it on the charger every time I get home. Just for fun, the next time it does it, I might try just warming up the transducer and sending it back down the hole to see what happens. Thanks.
    • BobT
      I didn't think of that! Probably should have glanced down the hole, eh?

      Just another reminder that walleye/pike season ends on Sunday too for inland waters.  Don't get caught targeting the wrong species of fish next week.

      New 2019 Regulations are out showing a slot increase from 17" to 18"!!
