Is it illegal on the St. Croix? I saw some guys using one last week...

Not only is a cast net illegal on the St Croix but it is illegal to harvest bait from the St Croix.

Page 15 2009 Minnesota fishing Regulations:

Invasive Species Laws

- It is unlawful to: harvest bait (minnows, frogs, crayfish or other wild animals) from infested waters.

The St Croix is infested with zebra mussels and as such is off limits for harvesting bait.

I wonder if a Wisconsin angler could get by with a cast-net on the Croix if he was intending on using the bait in the Croix? I think you can dip-net your own bait in the Croix and use it while fishing can't you?

Cast-Nets are legal to harvest bait in other non-infested Wisconsin Waters correct?

I haven't reviewed the Wisconsing regs for a couple of years so I am not totally sure. I know a few years ago a Wisconsin resident licensed angler could harvest bait on the St Croix with a cast net. The last couple of years Wisconsin tightened their bait harvest and bait transport rules because of the Hemorragic Virus and they were even tighter about bait than Minnesota. The bait harvest rules in WI are pretty tight now so before harvesting bait there I would recommend reviewing their bait regulations.

    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-eyes-michael-flynns-links-to-russia-1485134942    
    • Nick, so what are the top schemes the left plans to conjure up for impeachment?
    • Go Pats. They need one for the thumb.
    • And I am sure it will be a waste of server space You do understand that you just defined the meaning of the word conjecture don't you?     But there is conjecture so you have that  The only thing odd is that you are falling for the same type of fake news the Birthers fell for during the Obama years. Don't you understand you are quickly becoming the JV of libertopia?    Well, If you feel compelled then go ahead and forward your research to the proper authorities so they have a better chance at putting together the evidence to prosecute him because apparently without your insight they are not able to connect the proverbial dots. 
    • The dnc had russian propaganda that the russians hacked and released? Guess they provided the transparency the left is always so concerned about.
    • It's just a compilation of sources done on a public google drive. Pasting makes it searchable on this site.   https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzLcl2gcA6O_SWN3WWM4WTlMZ2M/view
