DNR admits Lac Qui Parle Reg. is not working

Recommended Posts

DUCKBOAT21

In an article in today's Willmar paper the DNR is proposing a new walleye Reg. on LQP. starting May 2005. They admit that the current Regulation with a 15" min. is not working. The new rule would be a 4 fish limit with one over 20" (same as Big Stone). The 15" minimum has led to the lowest number of large fish in the lake in memory. People were keeping fish that they would have released normally. Apparently some walleyes also died of natural causes before reaching 15" because of limited food supplies. Angling pressure has dropped off. The 15" minimum started in 1996. I'm glad to see that they can admit it is not working- but I also think this problem could have been identified earlier.

about time they change the regs. I use to fish the lake alot more before the 15" min and, other than one outing, caught fish over 15". You could always catch one eater now you see little 'eyes around 13-14" floating dead from people not keeping deep hooked fish or dropping fish over bridge, made me sick last fall.

Haven't hit area waters much. Have had decent luck on florida (northerns, sunnies, and bass).

Caught a crappie on school grove trolling a shad rap in August.

Sebrings, on the river, should be picking up.

give me a call sometime maybe able to sneak out.

I was using a orange, floating spinner that i had sink to the bottom with egg weights. using bigger minnows. Hawk is hard to fish because it is really fast now, sebrings looks pretty good, and so does eddy. Friday night might work. i will give you a call if i can make it out.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
