They lifted the spearing bans on several lakes as posted above. Not all lakes but it's a start. 

Any special length regulations on those lakes still apply.

I live across the street from Tonka and had planned to pretty much give up spearing, at least not put my own house out next year.  Now I am building a new spearhouse and am excited for the upcoming season.  Those big Tonka carp should be fun, and finding clear water not stacked with other spearhouses near home might not suck.

An fyi for those going to spear Tonka, there is a rule of having no ice blocks on the ice.  So either push your block under, or be prepared to load it in the back of your truck. link to LMCD winter rules pdf, page 3

What lakes still have a spearing ban?  Pleasant?

It might end up taking some of the pressure off the lake from those who live in the metro area. There is a lot of good fish able water on tonka. I just hope we don't see any issues with people going swimming. That lake claims a lot of people every year. Most in the type of areas that spear fisherman might be targeting.

Staying away from bridges will be the first way to cut down on the fatalities they seem to claim someone every year

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
