I saw the same thing, Tonka is pretty awesome for the metro, same with Bald eagle as that is much closer to home, why not White Bear though?

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

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
