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.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
