This is guy is not a supporter of fish and game conservation. He has no good intentions for the outdoors and doesn't either know or respect the laws set in place to maintain the outdoors. Those that support are truly a sorry lot.

The particular lake association(the PLPOA) has a history of spreading anti-musky misinformation and fear mongering. They also pushed at one point for a special regulation for their lake so they could kill any musky over 36". Unfortunately several northern newspapers out of Brainerd and Fergus Falls have printed his ramblings despite the factual inaccuracies. That was why at the meeting in Ottertail County a few months ago there was such a strong turnout by musky fishermen, and only a handful of anti-musky supporters. Unfortunately the politicians chose to ignore the public and they sided with the lake associations. The DNR has been asking for input since November of 2015 on their website(I linked the page on page 6 of this thread if you're interested), unfortunately Representative Mark Anderson has decided that he isn't interested in the months of input the DNR has gotten because the lake he plans to retire to was one of the lakes chosen to be stocked. He then writes an editorial for a northern newspaper, basically parroting the misinformation and fear mongering that the PLPOA has been attempting to spread for the past few years.



This is what irritates the muskie guys most when this stuff gets debated. People agressively against muskies use such ludacris examples to try defend their side. Nobody's getting bitten or eaten by muskies. They're not a non-stop eating machine, they sure as heck don't eat all the walleyes. This particular group has used those exact statements to gain support. It's such an uninformed mind-set, and to use "stupid" information to gain support is just unfathomable to me. If you're going to use 100% inaccurate information and thinking on a topic like this, what else are you capable of?

Decisions like this should be left to the DNR. Somebody mentioned the DNR along with Red & Mille Lacs issues a few posts above.............those lakes have/do experience something that's out of their hands and can't control that plays a big factor. DNR does the best job they can, and are full of employees that are attempting to preserve or sustain the outdoors. Be nice if more people took to good conservation practices to help along the way.

Was already posted earlier, good read.

Something I think the anti-Muskie guys probably don't have enough of is experience in lakes they now inhabit. Good multi-species lakes in the 70s-80s prior to stocking are just that now. I have three within 15 miles of me that have been/are phenomenal Muskie fisheries for numbers and size. ALL are good fisheries for species they had prior to stocking. Read the above link. It's not BS.

It's just odd that there is negativity against muskies at this point. As asked above, what negative impact have they had?? You can look at stocked lakes and natural lakes and you wont find one where muskies have caused any problems to a fish population. They're not some ravenous fish that eats everything it sees, i mean thats the argument you hear from very dumb people. Too many people that dont fish often or are poor fishermen need to have a scapegoat as to why they do poorly and somehow muskies are their's. There's never enough of them to have any kind of impact on a fishery, survival rate to adulthood is to low. The only impact you'll see is possibly more anglers on the lake, i will agree with that as a possibility but not as a certainty. The DNR is only choosing lakes that can support a trophy population, and with how successfully that program has been its no shock they wish to continue.

Of course the main issue here is the lake association stir. Personally, I know a few different ones and most members know ZERO about fish populations or lake management, yet they think their voice should be louder than others, including the DNR. What poor thinking. It's a joke that when these bills are submitted that the DNR cannot be the governing body on them alone. They know more than you or I, and especially more than some politician.

Great to see and I want to remind all the LSF readers that Tyler is a guide and lives on the lake and takes every precaution a fisherman can to be on early ice. A very knowledgable fisherman that knows the lake and knows early ice conditions. Great to see your at it this year Tyler and we will be up soon to do some fishing with Bear Paw Guides........Kirk


Question Kirk. I saw a number of people blasting Tyler and Bear Paw for posting these pictures on Facebook because it is so early and possibly sketchy.

I guess I just assume I'll take responsibility for my knowledge and actions and know what I'm doing. Are there really that many morons out there that we really have to post warnings, disclaimers and whatnot?[/quote



Yes, there really are that many morons out there. With today's instant satisfaction world people use their brain far less. Even simple things that involve whether or not ice is safe to walk on confuses or frustrates poor-brained people. It's human nature to be jealous of others that have certain things, or in this case the knowledge of the conditions. It's safe if you know what you're doing and are prepared. It's not safe if you're not. Staying within your limitations when it comes to life and death/injury is generally a smart move, but the limitations are different person to person.

Good work to those that are putting fish on the ice!

I fish fall bass quite a bit but have never done it in fall on Leech. Anything really change in October on Leech? Same bays? Rice and bullrushes are probably the standby, guess if anyones willing to share their thoughts or maybe some photos too that's be great!
