channel 9 report.

21 posts in this topic

All I can say is Finally this subject is getting the press it deserves. Will this hopefully get people to take notice and take the very small effort to e-mail there local, state and fed reps???? This is the only way this will every change (and it can change) sitting back and saying "it is what it is" is a cop out. This is the best opportunity there has ever been to make your opinions know do not waste this opportunity. It really is not that hard to send an e-mail to your pols. You do not need to make a long reasoning just say I disagree with the gill netting on ML simple as that.

I agree. E-mail all your important politicians and voice your concerns. Also it doesn't hurt to e-mail channel 9 news and thank them for being the only news station brave enough to take this story. Another story at 10 pm yet..........

Good point D. We need more news outlets that well take these type of things on. Come on everyone we can make change if we do not just sit back and do nothing. A simple e-mail will do more that you could ever imagine. lets not just let this opportunity die because this may be the last chance we have.

If someone is good with websites, I think starting a HSOforum regarding this or a myspace page might do wonders.

Links below. Due to volume of hits on these stories, you may periodically get "We're sorry. There are no stories currently available for this section.". If so, just try again or go directly to the Fox 9 News HSOforum. The story most of you will be interested in is the "Reaching Their Limit" segment, so don't be surprised if you get a message saying the story is not available. Just keep trying.

I like the guy that said they used to have to sneak out at night and now they can do it legally. One guy said he takes it home to share with his family. I do that too, but I can still only take 4 fish.

Nice coverage for Mille Lacs. I thought, for the most part, it was well done and very informative.

Didn't that same guy say he had about 700lbs of fish in his boat also, something has to be done about what is going on up there.

Is there just a simple list of email address's? I want to send many.

I did email the Governor- tim.pawlenty@state.mn.us

I do believe something can be done about this. If only banning the gill net for starters!! 100 years from now I firmly think this will not be happening like it is now- SO whay not try to change it NOW!!

Thanks

Jeff Pasolt is a hack.

Kinda funny when their talking about marketing the area and they/he dosent mention the casino. Fox is a joke of a media outlet.

Thanks for the links computerboy! Even though I watched the stories last night, I watched all 3 stories over again. Anyone interested in watching the stories should check out computerboys links as I got into the videos right away with no stalling with the large amount of people that are trying to watch it.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
