For smallies and plastics, I use these, and they bounce off rocks, sticks, and logs better than anything, not to mention weeds. Screw the soft plastic into the spring baitholder, and rig weedless with a swimbait, a senko, a crawdad... the shape of the jig-head deflects off objects well, and helps keep the hook-point away from timber.

I've never sealed mine. Once a year in the spring, I clean the handles. They look brand new.

Many instances show that what "they've"been doing works.Chopping milfoil in/on tonka(since 1987) helps control the weeds in high traffic areas.Using herbicides on Eurasian has brought down it's thickness so the the native northern milfoil can establish itself again.Same in Christmas.I think trial and error are part of these (the)solution(s).The herbicide treatments of milfoil have created the two plants to cross breed and create a hybrid that is resistant to the herbicide.Nature always has it's way!!!!Nothing is 100% especially in Nature.These "newer"invasives are going to become problems too.We can't eradicate these completely.Again......if you have some suggestions for future AIS (control) were all ears!!!!!!BTW.....faith and believing in something(s)is not a bad thing.c63


You're talking about reducing or controlling invasives after they're already present. That's a completely different discussion than preventing the spread of AIS, and that is what I have been referring to specifically, all along.

And faith and believing in something is a bad thing, when the thing you have faith in and believe in is government. And it is doubly bad when you have faith in and believe in something that is demonstrably failing to accomplish what it says it's supposed to accomplish.

I've never heard of a Muskie attacking a human being before. Holy crap.

Again, asserting that what they've been doing MUST be helping SOMEHOW is based purely on faith; on a desire to believe. The only evidence that exists shows AIS spreading from lake to lake in an ever-expanding list of infested lakes. Nothing measurable shows us that what they've done has helped anything whatsoever.

*Edited to add: The word "stop" and the word "prevent" have identical meaning in this context.

From where I sit, the program goals listed above are an abject, demonstrable failure...

"Prevent introductions of new invasive species into Minnesota." FAIL
"Prevent the spread of invasive species within Minnesota." FAIL
"Reduce the impacts caused by invasive species to Minnesota's ecology, society, and economy." IMPOSSIBLE TO MEASURE

I acknowledge your personal beliefs, but I must stress again, your beliefs exist outside of any evidence. The "simple measures" and "awareness" you believe are warranted have resulted in one thing: an increased number of lakes infested by AIS.

I'm not trying to be argumentative, or a hardass or anything. I respect your opinion. I just believe that public policy should always be fact-based, and results should be measurable in order to justify the policy.

With respect, you seem to be suggesting that because they're trying, they must be succeeding in some measure that cannot be measured. I'm looking at the ever-growing list of infested lakes, and saying, they've failed, and that because if that failure, I am not open to just accepting new restrictions without scrutiny, from the same people who have failed up to this point.

No contradiction. They've failed to prove and cannot prove successful results. The only evidence we have suggests complete and total failure. The objective is to stop the spread of AIS.
