      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Crappie limits to high!!

Recommended Posts

I have been out fishing a few times this year and have seen guys take a limit of 35 crappies each in a party of 3 or 4 people. I know that it is the legal limit, but in my opinion it's way too many. This is an excellent way to destroy our natural habitats of good numbers of fish. When are our law makers gonna wise up and lower limits to a more reasonable limit. Nobody needs to take that large a limit each time they go out.Just venting a little. Makes my stomach turn when I see anyone taking THAT many fish. But , it's just my opinion..

People need to show restraint and common sense. A segment of our society thinks it is their right to rape our resources.

It may be legal to take home a limit everyday but we do have possesion limits. But the last thing I want is game and fish coming into anybodys home and searching freezers.

I also personally think it not right to catch a daily limit everyday and give your fish away. Take who ever you are giving them to fishing and let them catch their own fish.

I too believe that 35 is a bit much, but when you ask a conservation officer about it they state that if we have a winter kill ALL the fish will be dead. Thus they would rather us take as many fish as possible from the lakes. I'm not sure if that is a great strategy but thats what I've been told. I wish the limit was 15, people would been a little move selective when havesting fish. Just an idea.

I don't know. I think more strict regulations on bodies of water is up to the local management of those bodies of water. I know some bodies of water in the state are "fished out" but I personnally know some bodys of water that are "underfished" and I would like to see more guys taking there limit for reasons of stunted fish, etc.(but that is a whole nother topic). This is good discussion and is worthy of its time. But my opinion is that some people are fisherman and some people are anglers.

You guys heard of Froelich Dam south of Mandan.

This lake gets fished out every 5 years or so. Word gets out of a hot bite and every person with a rod and reel hits it and destroys it. It looks like the parking lot of Walmart for a couple of weekends.

Fishing out lakes is a "custom" people have devloped and an accepted way of doing business.

How do you change that?

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
