First a repot: Headed up to West Rush yesterday, a few fish were beig caught. Most of what I saw, and caught were the 3 to a pounders, with a few 10s here and there.

Now the main part of the post. There were a group of 5 ..... well I don't even know what to call them. Sitting on the road between the two channels in the park. Truck parked right in the middle of the road. Swilling beer, and passing a bottle back and forth. Every sentence uttered had to have at least one F**k this or F**kin that. It didn't matter to them that the were several women fishing on either side of them.

Several racial comments were made.. just loud enough so the Mung fisher people down the shore could here them. Women, kids, didn't matter to these He-Men, they just kept on and on, with conversations about their wifes floppy t#ts, etc. etc. etc.

My point is, the parks and waters of this state are there to be enjoyed by all, and if you can't seem to conduct yourselves with a modicum of decorum, sit your hind end down in front of the tube and watch more Cops episodes, you'll most likely even get a glimpse of a family member!

Made me embarassed to be a white american male.

Hello Labrat, I think I observed the same group; some people for various reasons are not civilized. Lets not let the few rune it for the majority. All people, whatever their race, beliefs, sex in MN are privilege to be allowed to enjoy the outdoors. A privilege that each person pays to maintain - in the form of taxes and license. Over all I find that majority of fishing people are decent folks. Unfortunately those people were not good example of American White Male.

Its a shame there are people like that, but if you don't like their actions MOVE. You or the women weren't being forced to fish by them. It is 2002 i've heard plenty of women that can swear like drunken sailors. That park is big enough for everyone. Those men have every right to act like rednecks if they want, that doesn't mean you have to be their friend. You should go to church and pray for those rednecks. Sounds like they need saving.

If they were under the influence, they do NOT have every "right" to act that way, or any other way -- there are laws against public inebriation. Someone should have called the police.

Incidentally, these situations are potentially too explosive and dangerous to try to handle without police. Don't try to be a citizen hero.

Labrat,
I to was there yesterday, from 9am to 6pm and the fishing was almost dead. I did managege to get two big crappies and oone of those slipped out of the bottom of the basket. So I had one nice crappie and some sunnies that I decided to release. I think almost all were caught before noon. After that I think I went a couple hours without a bite.
As for the goups of rude and crude people, which ones where you talking about? I saw three or four groups that would have fit your description. One of them had a little boy about 4 and MAN!, do I feel sorry for his future! People like that just leave me picking up my jaw!

      Same here, our 1st color unit, 520 c(?), had that type of transducer(blue/5 pin) & it didn't last 1, maybe 2 seasons. We replaced it & the 2nd lasted much longer.

      I had a lot of problems with Lowrance transducers of that sort of vintage, the ones with the blue connectors.   It seemed to me that they didn't deal well with being frozen.   Now I store my transducers inside in the winter (I know that isn't possible when ice fishing).   I went through 3 or 4 transducers before realizing the problem.   Try borrowing a transducer to try.   Sounds exactly like what mine did.  Gradually lost sensitivity and would lose the bottom.

      Conditions for snowmobile riding in many parts of the state are as good as they’ve been in a long time, prompting what Department of Natural Resources conservation officers call the biggest number of riders in years to hit the state’s 22,000 miles of snowmobile trails. While zipping around on a sled is a great way to experience Minnesota’s snow-covered outdoors, Enforcement officials remind riders to leave the booze on the shelf or in the refrigerator until after they’re done riding. Alcohol is a factor in more than 70 percent of snowmobile-related fatalities in Minnesota. And it isn’t just intoxicated drivers who pay the price for their bad decisions. Earlier this month, Eric Coleman was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison for a tragic incident last year when the snowmobile he was driving struck and killed 8-year-old Alan Geisenkoetter Jr. Coleman, who was drunk and whose driver’s license was revoked when he crashed into the boy, had multiple previous DWIs in a motor vehicle. The incident prompted state lawmakers to close loopholes in the state’s DWI law. “We hope the increased penalties for people convicted of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence will cause them to think twice before drinking and riding. But they won’t bring back Alan or heal the damage this senseless crash caused his family,” said Jen Mueller, a regional training officer in the DNR Enforcement Division and the agency’s Enforcement Education Officer of the Year. “There’s never an excuse to drink and drive and we have no tolerance for people who do it.” The new law – Little Alan’s Law – went into effect Aug. 1, 2018. It means people convicted of driving while intoxicated – regardless of the vehicle they’re driving – lose their driver’s license and are prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, motorboats and snowmobiles. Before the law change, people convicted of DWI in a highway-licensed vehicle still could legally operate ATVs, motorboats and snowmobiles. The changes apply to violations that occurred on or after Aug. 1, 2018. The DNR anticipates Little Alan’s Law will affect more than 2,000 people each month in Minnesota. But since the law requires a DWI conviction – and these cases take time to move through the court system – specific numbers aren’t yet available.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
