(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.

      I need to hit Linwood up as that is a lake I fished so much with my grandpa. Used to get lots of keeper gills and nice crappies and big pike out of there.

      Lakes around Princeton are froze over or close. Lori lake had the most open water and lots of ducks. Silver lake capped over and stanchfield south and north mist froze over.

      I saw enough ice on smaller lakes in the Crosslake area to know they are getting closer and colder to icing over!

      On the main basin... For those fishing the lake, fishing has been good.  Most bays and harbors locked up with ice this past week, which has put a halt to the open water fishing.  At last report, there are good numbers of walleyes and saugers staged in traditional early ice locations across Pine Island and the entire south shore.  With fish location, numbers and fall success, LOW is primed for good early ice fishing. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River is still loaded with walleyes.  Some anglers made it out this week but single digits locked up any water not moving and it is pretty much done.  Anglers that got out had big numbers of walleyes to reward them, similar to previous week.  Up at the NW Angle... Ice is formed in back bays, harbors, on the angle inlet, from Young's Bay to Flag Island and across most of Flag Island flats.  Larger stretches of water or current areas still open.  Ice fishing will be here soon, but not yet.  Stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins.  Safety first.

      I am a maki mino guy the 1 inch ones for gills and crappies. The xl mino is great for big crappies perch and eyes. I have used many of the maki plastics but I tend to have the best luck with white with red flakes mino. The poli was good as well.

      I bought the inferno with yellow guide wraps last year for a walleye rod.Good rod,good feel however after a month and a half of using it the top guide developed a cut in it from the line(I use 6lb suffix mono only).I emailed tucr they said bring it in and we will see what we can do.I wanted to see if they could put a different tip on it but they said they wouldnt do that and they gave me another inferno of the same model.I used it for the last month of the season and guess what? The top guide has a cut in it again.I realize these are a cheaper rod than their top of the line however I have other rods I have used for many years and payed much less for that have no cuts/slices in any of the guides.Seemed like they were trying to upsell me to a better rod with better guides.Why would i spend 55$ on a cheaper rod to find out its junk then give them double that for what they say is a better rod.They have nice rods but they lost my business 55$ for a rod that didnt last a season isnt going to get me on their bandwagon.
