Stocking results for the TC Chapter of MI 11/20./2008

6 posts in this topic

Here's what we have stocked so far. Every fish has been tagged with a floy and a pit tag to be used in some studies in the years to come. The money to stock these fish came from the Hugh C Becker fund and the Twin Cities Chapter fundraisers.

White Bear:

287 Fingerlings

Tonka:

35 Yearlings

300 Fingerlings

Bald Eagle:

69 Fingerlings

183 Yearlings

We're still hoping to get some more yearlings for Minnetonka this year before everything is all said and done. Time will tell if our suppliers can get us any. I have communicated our need for more yearlings to the suppliers in MN and there should be an abundance of them for next year.

Thanks to all that have supported our fundraisers! Our club strives to put the money we make back into the resource and it's really paying off.

Should be some sweet fishing for years to come. If a tagged fish is caught is there anything that must be done before releasing it?

thanks for your effort's chapter #1. i'll set a little something aside for you next year to show my support.

so Shawn, i have a question. what's the limit on the amount of time a muskie can be raised in a rearing environment other than lakes without risk of stuntings?

Smeese, If you ever catch a fish that is tagged in MN you should report it to the DNR. If you go to their web page they have a form where you can enter the data. I haven't ever caught a fish with a tag in it so I'm not entirely sure of the process. We'll have a couple years to figure it out before these guys start showing up I'm going to guess.

As far as stunting, it really boils down to the abundance of food and water quality. On of our rearing ponds put out 350 28-32" fish a few years ago. They reached that size in 4-5 years which is about the norm for a lake. The forage wasn't that big in there so it's possible they hit the wall at that point, but who knows.

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
