What would you do?

I see a lot of complaints about the slot limits. What I'm wondering is how would you handle it if it was your decision to make. You have to limit the harvest to a certain amount for the year. If the regulations you imposed were resulting in too large a harvest then what, would you tighten the regs or just wait til the quota was reached and then close fishing? I'm curious as to what regulations people think they can live with and still limit the harvest to the yearly quota.

Unfortunately, there are no regulations that will please the masses at this time. You can send Jesse 10 million postcards, have a weekly "townhall" meeting with state representatives, guides, resort owners, outdoor writers, Mille Lacs Advisory board, and President Bush himself, but the truth is nothing will change until this winter when the DNR changes the regs back to 16 to 20 inches for winter fishing. You heard it here first.

As I read some of these posts, Im not sure what to think. Ive only fished the pond a couple of times with limited success. But the fish that were caught were nice specimens. I still am in awe as to what some of these people have on there minds, it makes me wonder...... I dont know what to think. Maybe we are all messed up in the head?..... Who knows?.... If I knew the answer I would gladly fill all of you in.

dont blow up your reels!!!!!

Ybone,
Slots are the management tool of choice. The $2.00 question is, Are the slots based on biology? I think, what we're seeing on Mille Lacs is something other than good biological management.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.

      Cliff and Byron are planning a Kids ice fishing day February 12. The event is out of Fortune bay Marina  9-1. The event is for Tower and Nett lake kids. I know Cliff is looking for a few helpers.

      Cuz that’s just me.  🙂  I just like tinkering and seeing what I can get away with - and learn about things.   Just got done with a fine hone stone and got out some small nicks I’m pretty sure I got from cutting dirty ice in ND.  I’ll find out tomorrow how I did.

      Like @eyeguy 54 says, Frank has been the go-to guy for members of this site for years.  He does it by mail and is in Saginaw, MN.   It’s interesting that you ask about re-shaping also.  I know Frank has the Nils jig and the drill blades are curved.  I was considering tuning up my own today before they get too dull but am concerned about maintaining the shape of the curve. Since I was a machinist in a former life, I’m still gonna try it.  Then maybe send to Frank. 😀
