I was all excited about a month ago about the DNR information. I actually took the information and put it on my navionics app for quick reference. I had a friend bring up the fact that in 2014 this state had a huge winter kill. If you look it up on UTube you will see the destruction. Kind of makes it a useless tool, unless you can find surveys done after 2014. The only exception is the lakes with depth the fish were able to stay protected. I've herd that the DNR will be doing surveys starting this year.

I have an Aqua View Scout XL for sale I did use it all the time for the purpose of finding bottom composition. I use the 20ft extension pole for steady viewing. The trolling fin is a blast to use depending on water clarity. In addition a bottom mounted spot light works much better than the built in IR lights. If you use the bottom viewing piece it points the camera straight down and makes it a piece of cake to see transition areas. Just say in

I like it because its better than running my LEDs off 12amp 7ah this has a 12amp 12ah with the ability to power LEDs, aerator, recharge cell phone and power the fan on my big buddy if you convert from 6v to 12v. In addition use it in my boat for anything I don't want to run off my 12v battery. Its an additional power source with plugins that you want to build into it. Fun to do and useful source of power.

Made a battery box this last weekend, turned out perfect. Watch the guy "JDS Outdoors" on U tube, ordered the parts off Amazon. Took my time with it, measure twice cut once. It will be very handy for ice fishing for hub house lights and keeping my phone charged. It was pretty easy to do and looks great. If you are looking for some power in your shack, check out "JDS Outdoors" on U Tube.

my two cents I was up to the big pond a few months ago and caught some walleyes of all year classes. Big eyes to small eyes could not keep any but we could fish for them. I decided to write the DNR a nice letter asking how it make sense that we pay for licenses and keep none while the tribe gets to keep all the walleyes they catch and discard all of the fish that are not "walleye". When I first starting seeing the pictures of the carnage it was gut wrenching (all species of fish discarded). I also noticed that there has been a effort by the state to promote the small mouth fishing to seemingly replace the walleye. The State official gave me a nice dissertation on how the Mille Lacs system works in regard to evasive species and the lake. I kind of chuckle about hearing how walleyes and small mouth don't do well together for many reasons. I also drove around the lake one afternoon and saw first hand how the smaller resorts are struggling - sad. I noticed that the casino owned resorts looked amazing and all of the bass tournaments were ran out of the casino (big money). I guess what I'm trying to say is the worst is not over and I wish we could all come to a agreement. If the band wants t buy all of the resorts, pay the resort owners a good price, I'm sure most will take it. Then build some incredible resorts that will attract patrons back to the area. As a Sportsman in this state it is truly mind bending what has happened to the amazing body of water. I listen to Steve Johnson from Portside, He is truly the most vocal about the issues - good. Tony Roach and Brad Hawthorne have been outspoken about the situation. Not to beat a dead horse but, I do not see any progress on the lake. WHY????? I learned in my twenty years of military service to try to give solutions instead of just complaining. If the DNR/tribe would just come out with a workable plan we could move forward. Peoples lively hood is at risk - stop playing this game and make some decisions. Where are our elected officials? I hope this is not a 10 year plan.

A few FYIs, I have my ice fever going. Packed my F150 the other night with my gear -- stoking the fire. I spoke to a couple of guys at Cabela's this last week. One of the two was miffed at the price of ice rod cases. I told him that I use plastic gun cases from Plano, price is like $18.00 compared to $40.00 and up. I have also been tying my own tungsten and buck tail jigs - Thorne Brothers rocks with outstanding supply and amazing knowledge. I support this store over big box stores, I love the hard water season.

God Bless

All walleye must be immediately released. Closed from September 5th through November 30; No walleye may be targeted.

NO LIVE BAIT: Only artificial baits and lures allowed in possession till November 30. Only exception is made for suckers greater than 8" in length targeting northern pike and muskellunge.

Blah, blah

Any news from last nights meeting? I would like to see some sort of resolution to the walleye situation. Again I will add that Mr. Dick Sternberg said this would happen. Does anyone have an alternative to gill nets?
