MILACS NEW SLOT LIMIT !!!

Recommended Posts

fishmeister_86

TO ALL YOU MILACS FISHERMAN,
I SEE YOUR GOING TO THE SAME SLOT AS RAINY LAKE., GUESS WHAT IT WILL TURN MILACS INTO THE BEST FISHERY ITS EVER BEEN, ITS BEEN ALMOST 10 YEARS SINCE RAINY WENT TO THIS SLOT
AND LAST YEAR WE HAD THE HIGHEST CATCH RATE
IN THE DNR NETS IN THE STATE, RAINY HAS BECOME A WORLD CLASS FISHERY.
AT FIRST LOCALS WERE REALLY AGAINST IT, BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT IT WOULD HURT OUR TOURISM,BUT ITS DONE JUST THE OPPOSITE, & NOW THE LOCALS SEE HOW IT HAS HELPED THE LAKE & IT FEELS GREAT THROWING BACK SLOT WALLEYES, SO I SAY BE HAPPY, BECAUSE YOUR LOCAL DNR FISHERIES DID THE RIGHT THING. 3 TO 4 YEARS, IF NOT SOONER, THIS WILL PAY HUGE DIVIDENDS.
GOOD LUCK & GOOD FISHING...SINCERELY,
FISHMIESTER
RAINY LAKE

D-MAN,
I AGREE THAT MILLE LACS HAS BEEN & I WILL CONTINUE TO BE WORLD CLASS, BUT I STILL THINK THAT THIS WILL HELP IT GET EVEN BETTER,
AND YOU WON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE LAKE GETTING SHUT DOWN WITH ALL THE WALLEYES IN THE SLOT BEING RELEASED. THERE WILL BE ALOT OF TICKETS HANDED OUT IN THE BEGINNING WHEN
PEOPLE WILL GET CAUGHT WITH SLOT FISH., BUT FISHERMAN WILL LEARN TO COMPLY (THE HARD WAY)

I don't know how mille lacs could get any better than it was before this huge perch hatch. as far as size and numbers go it may have been some of the best walleye fishing in North America. this slot should be no different than previous slots, in terms of helping or hurting the fishing.

Not sure if you have fished Mille Lacs lately, but it is already a world class fishery and has been. Iam sure what we saw this past summer can be beaten? Pound for pound Mille Lacs put's out catches that can't be beat. Iam just glad it didnt go to catch and release,i don't like that the lake can be shut down after the quota has been met which may happen if we have another year like last year.

      Just got back from LOTW fishing for us was slow. But if you put the time in and watch your electronics it can still be good. We're fishing in 32ft lot of small fish just need to keep the hook away from them several good fish still coming thru. A few slot fish up to 26 1/2 inches walleyes 15 to 17 saugers 14 to 16 lot of water under the snow in spots.

      Thanks for the report.  I didn’t hear any news from my buddy’s last trip up there so I assumed it was bad.  I texted and asked; yup it was bad.  He’s finally burned out for the ice season after the back to back bad trips and putting his gear away.     One of his buddies did an 8 man/5 day trip for lakers in another part of Ontario.  8 fish total.   I agree, it can get better before the end though if a couple things work out weather wise.

      I say that if this gets passed, those lakes are on their own, no stocking, nothing supported by the dnr, if they want their lake all to themselves, they can support it.

      Mar 19, 2019 Wright County AIS public meeting recap:   The Wright County passed the AIS ordinance with a 3 to 2 vote. Now it is entirely up to the DNR commissioner to approve it. The Wright County commissioners said that if the DNR does not approve it by April 15th, the whole proposal is dead for good.   Here are some more details from the meeting. There were about 50 people attending, 99% lake shore owners. They all applauded the proposed ordinance (except for the self-certification part). One after another they spoke about how much trouble their lake is in and how much it has cost them to keep AIS at bay. They did a great job of presenting “the sky is falling” to the county commissioners (I always find it interesting that there is no mention of restrictions on lake shore owners using lawn fertilizer that turns the lakes into a green slimy mess. Seems to me that would be a no brainer if you really cared about the lake). Most made a point that they are not trying to privatize their lake and are offended when they hear that. On the other hand, not once did anyone mention that we need to come up with a better way that does not restrict access. Only one lone fisherman addressed the council and said that he bypassed the three test lakes last year and will bypass the additional lakes if this passes, too much hassle. Hmm, funny how that works. Imagine if this catches on and all the lakes are restricted, sell the boat I guess. There was also mention of a need for an exit inspection process. Not sure what that means, but didn’t sound like it would be in lieu of the proposed inspections and you may end up having to get inspected before and after you go to the lake.   Also of interest, the commissioners said they have received many inquiries from lake associations around the state and there were several other lake association representatives at the meeting to observe and see how they could implement this same strategy. So Wright County will be the test case for every county in the state to run with this. What a disastrous precedent. Not to mention the regulations and tags would be different for every county, making it cumbersome and impractical. The self-certification will have a cost of $10 to $40, so multiply that by how many counties you fish.   What you can do if you want to stop this from happening: The entire fate of this proposal now rest on the DNR. The Wright County commissioners will meet with the DNR commissioner on Mar 21. If the DNR does not approve the plan by April 15, it will be dead. Send your concerns to these DNR contacts right away so that they receive it before they meet with the Wright County people.   [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]     PS,  you can read the emails send to Wright County on this link. Notice how organized the lake associations are with their form letter that you just sign and send. In particular, notice the one from the Clearwater association #34 on the page (see where this is heading?). http://www.co.wright.mn.us/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Item/6489?fileID=13556

      I just checked the Two Harbors webcam, and it’s still frozen. However, the ice cutter was in the background carving out the shipping lanes. Personally, I think the ice season on the big pond is over!
