I think the reason the DNR has never investigated the bird/mammal theory, just people and boats, is because you can't write a paying ticket to a duck.

Ducks and geese have been around alot longer than all of us,  moving from one body of water to the next. Sure they might have something to do with it but it's on us to blame!! They've been saying for years the waterfowl migration has shifted more to the west, hows those lakes doing compared to ours?

You may want to look up how many other water birds there are it's not just Ducks and geese, Loon!   :rotflmao:
So your saying ducks, geese , loons, herons and other birds didn't move around from lake to lake back in the day before all the problems.. ITS ALL MAN MADE and spreads from there..

Man made Zebs and weeds?  Wow.  :bow:   :bonk: :bonk:
  So back when your old man was baiting your hooks the lakes were not good??? And you blame the birds.. :bonk: :bonk: :bonk:


So they say, boober.....who knows?

Origin and Spread

The zebra mussel is native to Eastern Europe and Western Russia. The species was unintentionally first introduced into the United States’ Great Lakes through the discharge of contaminated cargo ship ballast water. They were first discovered in the Great Lakes in 1988 and were first confirmed in the Duluth/Superior Harbor in 1989. Refer to EDDMapS Midwest  for current distribution.

Opossums never used to be in MN neither.  So now they are common.  I wonder if leprosy
will become more prevalent too.  Isn't that what possums were supposed to spread???

August 26, 2019 11:38 AM

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The state is closing walleye fishing on Mille Lacs Lake effective Friday, Sept. 6, so sport anglers don't exceed the lake's safe harvest level.
   
The Department of Natural Resources cites high angling pressure and catch rates in July and August, when warm water increased hooking mortality and resulted in a larger-than-expected walleye kill.
   
The DNR this year allowed anglers on the popular lake to keep one walleye through May 31 before it returned to catch-and-release-only walleye fishing. It was the first time since 2015 that Mille Lacs anglers could keep a walleye during the open-water season.
   
Starting Sept. 6 at 12:01 a.m. anglers can't legally target walleyes on Mille Lacs, but may fish for other species.
   
Regulations for the 2019-2020 Mille Lacs ice fishing season will be announced in November.

They die anyway (which is very debatable) but we can't keep them, what kind of person thinks this crap up?

But seriously - managing the lake for sport fishing with what is left over is a no win situation and a thankless job.

I think it should be you catch 3 (or whatever number) fish and have to keep them all.  Then you go home.  No releasing fish and there is no slot.  3 fish any size you keep em.  BIG fine if caught putting a fish back.  Some negatives to this but I still think it is the most fair for fisherman and the fish.  I remember at times big dead walleyes floated all over from being caught in warm water.  Having this system will be fewer dead wasted fish and guys can bring some fish.  Bummer if you catch 3 12".  But next time you may catch a big one.

The DNR themselves says there is a high population of walleye's in the lake and that was part of their decision in this.  Still we have a quota and now a ban on fishing for walleye's.  Talking to the resort owners and how many walleye they are catching daily and releasing this argument on quotas and bans is insane.  I agree with the resort owners and the majority of the fishermen.  The DNR in this case is catering to the native's there period.  They talk about the cash that flowe's to the stuffed shirts in St. Paul.  They talk about how their rights are taken away while the native's there {Casino owners} are trying to devalue the property value's all around the lake.  How they are buying up property's around the lake ect.  The DNR should Cut the limit of walleye's to 4 and institute a slot limit.  Lake full of walleye's yet they throw a bone to the anglers "you can have one now, and none later" BS.  This has gone on long enough while restricting fishing to anglers to what goal?  Is it the goal to restrict fishing to anglers for years to come as in past years.  Looks like that goal is working.  good luck.

Does he agree with the Supreme Court and thee blue ribbon commission?

Personally I think maybe they ought to handle a lake like mile lacs more like hunting.  Or BWCA.

There are so many day fishing permits.  You get to put in your application and there is a drawing for the permits which limits the number of angler days per period of time (day, week, whatever) to a level compatible with the allowable harvest.  Fish for whatever  you want, even keep a walleye or two.  Apply the system year around.

Just a suggestion, since the lake seems incapable of handling the fishing pressure it is seeing.

There are so many day fishing permits.  You get to put in your application and there is a drawing for the permits Incorrect In 2019 it is first come first serve and the system broke down twice   :taz: which limits the number of angler days per period of time (day, week, whatever) to a level compatible with the allowable harvest.  Fish for whatever  you want, even keep a walleye or two.  Apply the system year around.

Wit limited access (permit system) such as suggested yer lookin at a disaster such as what  happened dis season in da BWCA. :doah: The ANTIS' (environmental groups) :moon: will gobble up as many limited access permits as day can. They have no intention of using dem. :tut: But da goal is to prevent da sportsman from getting access to fish and boat on a specific body of water because of limited permit availability. :doah: Dis way saving the lake from destruction! :crazy:

 
 :angry2:
Without permits people will not be able to come ta fish. Would you sill come to M.Lacs if you can't get a permit ? Resorts and businesses will all suffer and many will have ta go out of business someware along da line. How would you like ta have property on the lake but can't even fish it because da limited permits are all spoken for :banghead:
