I fished Millstone out last night. I went there with 75 hp (Canadian-made!) Ridgid Wet-Dry Vac ($2,394 sugg. retail) and sucked out the remaining 43 fish...and distributed them to the Monticello Veterans Friday Fish Fry...they gave me a hug, which I really needed at the time.

Yes...it would have cost me $5160 for the "over the daily limit" fines, plus another $860 restitution, for a total of $6020. But I would have fought it. I don't think our game warden has legible handwriting...

Well, I hardly think that asking for directions to a lake is the same as "drilling my holes and setting up my portable on the hot spot". But, hey, what the hell...there's plenty lakes to be fished. You little boys just keep fishin your secret little lake but realize that on your report cards, where it asks does he work and play well with others its gonna say "needs improvement"! Your allowance may be slashed and possibly, no more nintendo!!!

go to map quest dot com and enter maple lake Mn go north on Hwy.#8 out of town until you see a lake that looks like a duck head pointing east.Bingo .This is just south of Hwy.#39 west. Now when you get on the lake go north east and you'll see a few houses on the north center of the lake stay on the north east side of this group of houses .Try a small perch jigging rap with a head only .drop this to the bottom (about 6') jig a few times then hold still as you can.or try a small gold buck shot jigging spoon in the same manner. Good luck .Metro

Rockhard...I "do" fish elsewhere...Got my limit of nice crappies on Chisago last night. I just figured I'd post a sarcastic reply to those who posted them to me. I could care less if they gave the directions to the lake...I talked to a friend who fished Millstone on Friday and got his limit of eyes before sundown. He gave me very good directions, however, I didn't realize that it was getting "that" hammered until i talked to him. Personally, I don't like fishing a lake or pond that is that crowded, whether the fishing is great or not. I like the solitude of fishing. I allways try and fish away from the villages or common "hot spots" on any lake i fish. I like finding the fish myself in areas that aren't crowded. And Metro 1, thanks for the directions and fishing tips, however, I'll be leaving that lake alone. Too many other places to fish in peace and quiet, which to me, is half the pleasure of fishing.

That is the pleasure and fun of fishing quiet times to spend with your friends and family. Friday afternoon a friend of mine heard of a good lake but some what difficult to get to so we were off. First I buried my truck and had to shovel for 45 min. finally got out went to plan two, his sons 250 Yamaha enticer well with two up on that and all our gear ...well it didn't go like my cartoon bubble pictured so we got that stuck three times and one was on a hill going out of this lake and I had to pull the otter sled up the hill "whew".I had never fished this lake and all we could find was 5' of water. off to the next lake and we fished in 21' of water and I got a few hits but my fishing bud got a 3" perch. We worked for 3 hrs. and fished for 1 1/2. But that's the fun of fishing. Trying something new! Metro

dewoutdoor70...does that question really need to be answered? If you didn't feel like giving directions, then just don't reply! Negative reply's serve no purpose other than satisfying your need to instigate something. Good luck on your little lake.

Yes, People do like to stir the pot on this board and also other boards, just cant say anything nice Ive noticed some here that do that. Its like they never caught a fish before so wont tell. Icerookie I was going to ask where Millstone was but I knew what the answer would be but you asked for me. If I wanted to go I would pull the book out and find it. But dont really need it like you say lots of lakes to fish Good fishing To all sportsman.

What's funny is that we're trying to protect the little 100 acre, 7' deep pond. It has had no less than 50 vehicles and houses setup in about a 1 acre area. Apparently, that must be where all the fish are. I've fished the lake 4 times...with general disgust at the amount of people crowding into one another. I mean, sometimes there's 3 or 4 feet between houses and vehicles! Disrespectful and dangerous. Found myself hoping the ice would crack open...just to show these people they shouldn't do that. I fished well away from the group 2 times and the other 2 times I fished inside the grouping earlier than anyone else...then left when the people started showing up.

Icerookie...I'm sorry for sounding so sarcastic, but understand that I was "defending my territory". I know it's not my lake and that it's also going to suffer winterkill...but I hate seeing all these people coming from everywhere because there's a "walleye bite going on!" There are 200 of these DNR sanctioned walleye rearing ponds throughout the state...find another one, so this one can rest in peace.

Metro 1...if I recall, you were the one that started this mess!!! Here's your original post:

I hate to throw fuel on the fire but here goes.

If this is a DNR rearing pond, don't they want to get all the mature walleyes out of there so they don't eat the young of year walleyes they put in there? Otherwise the larger walleyes just get fat on the young and they don't meet their fry objectives.

Nobody wants to see a small area get hammered or littered. But if people are respectful of the resource, these guys are doing the fishery a favor by getting the larger ones out. And I would rather see somebody eat them than have them winterkill.

WALLEYEHAWK You are absolutely right, these types of waters are not meant to be sustainable fisheries why not fish them so somebody can get some use out of them. everybody has paid for these fish in one way or another not just the locals. the cost of the dnr stocking program is very expensive and to let these fish go to waste after the expense that has went into them is foolish to me. these types of waters are selected in the hopes that there wont be any carryover. for the people that dont like the crowds go someplace else. I was there the first week or so after it got started, I went not knowing what they were catching, I was hoping for a few nice sunfish as there have been a handful there in the past. I did catch a couple of sunfish too but it was pretty much a walleye thing. I didnt go back. I personally dont get that excited about catching a bunch of small walleyes. Some people do and thats fine but to try to protect something that isnt yours in the first place escpecially when it is proably not going to live, to me is just selfish.

ackotz - there's no need to apologize, but, since you did, its accepted. I have a suggestion for you however: If you truly want Millstone to rest in peace, then quit fishing it yourself. I mean, come on...you said yourself you've fished it 4 times. And I assume you mean 4 times since the "hot walleye bite" started. You don't need to "defend your territory" against the likes of me, who, after hearing what type of pressure was on that small lake, decided not to fish it even once! As far as the overcrowding in specific areas on "any" lake, that just boggles my brain, too. Personally, I think permanent shacks should be banned. We all know that the "villages" are set up on the prime structure on any lake, and they mostly consist of permanent ice shacks. Ice fishing should be "portables only", that way, no one person or group of people can "hog" the prime structure on any given lake. But, thats another discussion. Anyway, I didn't know that Millstone was a DNR rearing pond! I also didn't know that people were allowed to fish on sanctioned DNR rearing ponds. Whats goin on??

Metro 1...experiencing those times are what makes the "good times" seem even better! Of course, "any" time your fishing is considered a "good time", right? Hopefully, your next adventure will produce better results. Good luck!

ice rookie my directions would have gotten you there,as far as the pond goes ,im not sure i heard about it from a friend,probally a month after they started fishing it,someone said it was posted on the dnr site,not sure of that ,i never found it,i believe they wanted it fished out,and hopefully froze out,so they could start over,would be better to see people eating those fish instead of birds in my opinion,i havent been there since last weekend,and they were bitting good then,so probally still arewhat i seen there were two year classes 12to 13 and 15to 16 heard there were bigger ones,but i never seen them

Icerookie...haven't been there in 3 weeks, due to the influx of people/poachers.
As for you people who rely on finding the "hot bite" on the internet...go ahead, fish it (you lazy sloths). After all, it's a free country and a public lake.

I, personally, would rather spend my time researching potential lakes, in lieu of catching fish, if not for just having a great time fishing (not necessarily "catching"). I enjoy getting outside, finding new spots (which Millstone was for me, until I saw it getting raped and poached [DNR was out citing people]), and the challenge of finding and possibly catching fish. For me numbers mean absolutely nothing! I've never limited out and have no real desire to. Most of the time, it's "catch and release" for me...unless the wife says "bring home some fish this time"... grin.gif

As far as, why the DNR is letting people fish this rearing pond? It's because they'll plant in the spring, net in the fall, and after a few years, pull up the stakes ("DNR REARING POND- KEEP OUT"), and move on to another prairie wetland type pond...

Has any one ate any of those walleye's out of Millstone yet? By the looks of the water color that farmer on the hill has been letting his feed lot drain right in the lake! Talk about some green water, I am totally on board with fishing it out, the more walleyes that make through each year hurts the stocking for the next, this duck slough was chosen for a rearnig pond for just that reason.

      Fished solo Sunday and Monday afternoon.  Began by targeting smallies, but couldn’t buy a fish which was odd because the conditions were juicy - calm, cool, cloudy, drizzly.   Frustrating to say the least!    Figured if I was gonna get skunked, then it might as well be swinging for the fence.  Switched to Muskies at 7:30 and got lucky as heck, putting three in the boat over the next two hours, including a porker 48”er.  Felt very content the rest of the evening.    Got back out on the water Monday afternoon under post-frontal high skies and was fortunate to trick this lonely blonde an hour into the day.  Missed another a short time later and had some follows before pulling the plug to head home.  Didn’t want to leave that’s for sure!  All East end fish caught casting btw and all released unharmed.   Water temp was 71.

      I recently found an interesting thomas king essay topic on this site. God, I'm so glad that now I shouldn't waste time surfing the web. By the way, the rest of the topics from the list were also very interesting.
    • MasonDavis1
      The main keywords of this essay “can virtue be taught essay”. Plato presents Socrates’ views on the question of virtue and knowledge. It can be taught in many dialogues, including Meno. Socrates offers many arguments regarding virtue in this dialogue. These arguments cover how virtue is defined, and whether people can attain it. He discusses how virtue can be achieved, including whether one is born virtuous and whether it can be taught. This essay will address the question of whether virtue is possible to teach. Plato answered that virtue can't be taught. This essay will argue that Plato could have asked the questions differently and given him a different response. Particularly, I argue that Plato could have asked whether virtue can be learned rather than asking whether virtue is taught.   Meno asks Socrates whether virtue is possible to teach. The argument is then shifted to another question: what is knowledge? Meno then proposed an interesting paradox. One cannot find anything new. Either one already knows the answer, in which case it is unnecessary to search for it, or one doesn't know it and can't recognize it once it is found (Plato 1997: 80d-e. To put it another way, if one doesn't know what virtue (arete) is, he cannot search for it. Because he will not be able to recognize it when he finds it. Socrates proposes a solution to this problem, which is based upon the Pythagorean view on the immortal soul. The idea that the soul can reincarnate and be destroyed after death of the body is an example of this. It is clear that one cannot acquire new knowledge, but it is also obvious that we are constantly learning new things. Therefore, learning must be a matter recollection of past lives experiences and knowledge. Also, remembering is more important than teaching.   He demonstrated the Meno with a young boy from slavery who didn't seem to have any geometry knowledge. He was able to prove that the boy knew certain mathematical theorems by asking him questions.   Meno again asks his original question. He wants to know if virtue can be taught or if one is born with virtue. Socrates agrees to continue, but says they need to find common ground because neither one of them can define virtue at this moment. Meno agrees that virtue cannot be taught if it is not knowledge. If it is knowledge, it can be taught. Meno points out that it is only possible to teach something if you know what it is. It is unlikely that someone who doesn't know how to drive a car can teach another. Meno and Socrates agree that no one knows what "virtue" means and can therefore not be taught.   Socrates claims that virtue can be taught if we are able to learn from those who teach it (Plato 1997: 96c). Socrates asserts that there are teachers who can teach horsemanship, medicine, and other skills. These teachers are recognized by everyone as legitimate, but people disagree on whether they actually teach virtue. Thucydides was the father of two sons. Neither of them were considered to be virtuous. It is claimed that Thucydides taught his children many disciplines. However, it seems that he couldn't find a teacher who could teach virtue, even though he had teachers for other areas of life that he valued. Even though he was virtuous, he could not even teach it. Virtue is not a form knowledge. To make something knowledge, one must be able teach it to others. Socrates concluded that virtue cannot and should not be taught, and that there are no methods or means by which one can acquire virtue. Refer to: Virtue is simply "shown that it will come to us whenever it comes" (reference).   Plato might have received a different answer if he had asked the questions differently, according to my opinion. Plato could have asked whether virtue could learn, rather than asking whether virtue can ever be taught. To put it another way, asking if one can be taught something implies that the relationship between a student or teacher is involved. However, asking if something can be learnt means that the student (or someone with similar life experiences) is asking if a teacher has taught you geometry. To ask whether I learned geometry, it is to simply ask whether it was taught to me by a teacher or if I learned it myself from a book or some other source.   There are many ways to learn. To learn something one doesn't need a teacher. Learning can be done by studying virtue-filled people, even though they may not know it. A man might be learning virtue and his "teachers" could be virtuous even though they may not be living. Experience is another form of learning. Experience can be a great way to learn virtue. This would mean that the "teacher" is a combination of life experiences and reflective nature. Another form of learning exists. Even if he can't explain how he learned it or what he knows, a man can still learn. After someone has experienced a certain problem in their life, he may be able to detect that his relative is also experiencing the same issue. He can recognize it but cannot explain how. Another example is the musician or painter who has learned their craft and can perform well but cannot explain what it was.   The question of whether virtue can or cannot be taught is therefore a different and more narrow one than the question of whether virtue can actually be learned. Plato was right when he said that virtue can't be taught. It is likely that many people know of or have heard of people who can recite the "rules of virtue" but cannot put them into practice. This is a clear indication that virtue cannot be taught. As I mentioned, being virtuous is similar to being able to play a musical instrument, which is instinctual. It could be argued, for instance, that the ability to recognize when to help a friend, or when to give it to him, is something we instinctually know.   This means that, although virtue cannot be taught, it is possible to learn virtue. Plato suggested that virtue is inherent. This is true to a certain extent. Some people have an extraordinary capacity for virtues such as compassion, empathy, and the like. Since they were born. Others, however, seem to have a lack of moral consciousness. This seems to be a problem because virtue cannot exist without it. This does not mean that virtue cannot be learned, but that the foundation is inborn.   The same way we understand that it is possible to preach virtue but not practice it, so too can the reverse. People can improve their understanding of virtue and may find that they are more virtuous through reflective practice. As they get older, their perceptions of what it means to act in a virtuous manner change. Plato might have received a more positive answer if he had asked different questions (e.g., if he had asked if virtue could be learned instead of if virtue could be taught).

      Red, the moose was near birch island. As far as the lead bite goes....I had heard it was lights out a week ago. No doubt from what I've seen that before 9am you can get into a good bite. For me it's been poor after that. I'd be real curious if others are finding that as well. I have tried deeper areas as well and they weren't good after 9am for me either.

      That is great to see! Between Birch Point or Birch Island and Pine? Great to see wherever! Last one I saw was in Quetico umpteen years ago.   I’ve been wondering about lead core. I’m starting to find fish with lindy rigs (although I’ve started to use tungsten worm sinkers) or spinners with crawlers in 18-20’ near steep rocky shore.    Your wildlife shot reminded me of one I took about a month ago along 77. Thought I’d share it. not as cool as a moose, though!
