I have the regular buddy the square single pane version. It works great when its 10 degrees or warmer. Under that it is really difficult to get the pane to take. I can have all the pilot I want. I've just accepted that it won't work and bring my sunflower for backup. Don't like it, but it's better than being cold.

Speaking of fireball, has anyone ever tried the Yukon Jack Permafrost peppermint/cinnamon schnapps? It's 100 proof and it looks like Bombay sapphire. It is absolutely spectacular in coffee or hot chocolate. And I hate peppermint usually.

One of my favorites is scotch whisky because there can be so many different flavors. To me, a lot of bourbons remind me of antique shopping with my mom when I was a kid, something about that old oak flavor/smell just doesn't appeal. But with scotch you can choose what flavors you like and it's still scotch and even though it's aged in oak it avoids that sort of varnish flavor. For my taste, I'm mostly a speyside fan - think the "Glens" (glenlivet, glenfiddich, glen moray etc..) The base versions of each of those is not that expensive, around $25-40 give or take. Right now my absolute favorite is Talisker storm. It has more of the Islay character - that smokey peaty kind of flavor without a lot of the iodine notes that are really offputting of the really peaty stuff. A lot of scotch guys swear by single malt, which basically means it comes from one place and is distilled from barley. Blended or blended malt can be multiple distilleries or multiple malted grains. To be honest, sometimes blending is better because they taste for consistency. The reason some folks don't like it is because it's easier to hide poorer quality or younger whiskies. But it really comes down to what you like to sip, others be damned.

You do realize that's how the system is set up right? Like fishing license sales pay for the work that the DNR does and the DNR can't do that unless they sell fishing licenses. If it were all about biology and not some about economics and angler satisfaction none of them would have jobs. And again, they don't just make willy-nilly decisions about slot limits and special regulations. They have a goal, they use the best available science they have based on research (like actual research, not just hanging out in a boat with a rod draped over the side postulating about how they could make the world perfect).


Think about the slot limit this way - the best reproducing females in the lake are 20-28" in length. The slot limit essentially limits the taking to 1 fish larger than 18". Therefore protecting the best breeding population from mortality. Yes, males are included but that's how it goes. If the DNR has decreased the upper limit, it may be because in a fish community, the more larger fish - those greater than the optimum breeding size, the harder it is to reach a population goal because fish are cannibalistic and will eat younger fish when forage is in short supply.

It amazes me how demanding people can be when it comes to fish and game management. I think people need to understand "management" means long term viability, and not optimal success year after year after year. Fish limits have changed over the years as agency staff and researchers have learned stresses and corresponding responses of game populations. We don't have 20 fish limits anymore because they learned. Also keep in mind that agency staff and researchers have to deal with the constant development of tools that allow fisherpeople to be so much more successful than they ever were before. Bigger boats that get more places faster, bigger screens with better data transposed on them, and cameras you physically stick down an ice hole so you can watch when your bait gets bit. Not to mention the studies of fish and game ecology that helps produce lures and attractants that tap into basic physiological responses more efficiently than before (think of plastic lures that look, smell, and taste like the real thing). It's an impossible job to keep on top of all these things, while effectively managing peoples expectations of how productive a lake "should be" vs the reality of nature, cycles, pressure etc... And also, just because you think it should be done differently doesn't make you any more right than anyone else. It's not a job I would want, and I think folks need to be happy that we have a structure in place that provides for some management whether it's stocking or trying to build the fishery base during low cycles because without that, no matter how ineffective you think it might be, there would literally be nothing left.

Took this a few weeks ago from my office parking lot. It was cold! Drove to Bemidji that day and it lasted the whole drive.

They are in the st louis river, but I've not heard of anyone trying to harvest them. You really can't since it's illegal to possess or transport invasive species. So C&R? Figure there's more worthwhile species to target?

Fathead minnows can live in very oxygen-poor environments. They are fairly compatible to sharing space with other baits, however suckers, and shiners have a very high oxygen demand, and usually don't last long when combined with other species. Even if you have the biggest oxygen pump possible, the dissolved oxygen capacity of the water is very dependent on temperature. If you're going to house the bait together I would suggest figuring out how to lower the water temp, as lower temp water has higher oxygen solubility. If that doesn't work, you might just have to house them separately.

If you google the Minnesota Revisor of Statutes, that is where all current legislation, laws, and Administrative rules (those published via legislatively granted agency rule making authority) are housed until they are revised and a new one published. You can get PDF versions as well. Thanks F6firecat and sorry orandusa I should have posted the language as well as the citation.
