3 Rods Allowed In Michigan

5 posts in this topic

I saw this posted somewhere else:

Michigan to allow three rods

In a major regulation change, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) announced anglers will be able to use up to three rods, effective April 1.

In the past, the limit was two rods on Michigan waters except anglers trolling for salmon in the Great Lakes could use three rods.

The Michigan DNR also reminds anglers that new fishing licenses went on sale March 1.

The licenses are good from the date of purchase through March 31, 2010. Anglers are not required to possess a 2009 fishing license until April 1, when the new season begins and new fishing regulations take effect.

In recent years, the Michigan DNR has printed two fishing guides, one specifically for trout and salmon. This year, the 2009 Michigan Fishing Guide includes all fishing regulations. It’s available statewide at license vendors.

The color-coded maps that were previously printed in the trout and salmon guide are not included this year. Color-coded trout stream maps will be available online at www.michigan.gov/dnrfishing beginning April 1. Changes to lake and stream types are noted in red in the fishing guide.

There are two other major fishing regulations changes for 2009 in Michigan:

— The daily limit of five trout and salmon in combination may now include up to five chinook or coho salmon. In the past, the limit included a maximum of three fish of one species.

— There is a two-gallon daily limit on smelt. Previously, there was no limit.

3 Lines ought to keep people busy.

I know there were alot of changes starting with the O9 fishing season. We could alway run 3 rods on lake Superior, it is real nice when 2 guys are in the boat running planner board. 3 shallow and 3 deep. Now 3 rods during ice fishing will be odd, I guess I need a bigger portable.

I actually heard about this a month or so ago, but couldn't find any proof to back up the rumors..........it'll sure make things interesting in a 12ft. boat with two guys in it grin

I am curious if anyone knows what the rational was to make this change. Really, 3 rods seems quite excessive for most fishing. Is there a fight started yet to allow 4? grin

    • Talked to one of their guys at the Ice Show last week,  what I believe was their entry level w/ramp (like 6.5' x 12') door was over $13k.   I thought it was quite pricey with really not much for any options.  Quality appeared to be good but way more then I would spend for it.  Their biggest selling point is the light weight and pounds per square inch on the ice.   They do have  channels on the inside to run you wired through if you want to add items.   The inside was extremely bright - almost to bright for my eyes.   I believe they said they are located in Litchfield, MN.
    • I would give your first statement 5 Pinnochios.  The first tax increase on people making less than $200k he signed was only 16 days into his first term.     "1. A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco: On February 4, 2009, just sixteen days into his Administration, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack. The median income of smokers is just over $36,000 per year."       And then, of course, the big one is Obamacare, which was ruled a tax by the Supreme Court, and affects many taxpayers under $200,000.
    • Trump is way ahead of you there buddy.    
    • The only tax change that occurred was allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire. All tax bills must be introduced in the House of Representatives, so if you are unhappy with the current state of taxes, you should start there.   Also for those wondering, Clinton's tax increases would have added about $140 billion per year in tax revenue.
    • Sooooo....we were at a breaking point before Obama care....anyone actually think their policy under Trumpcare is going to reduce costs with an increase in benefits.....over an extended period of time?
    • The Art of the Deal......
    • So in a nutshell, you wouldn't really recommend buying U.S. Treasury bonds for an investment.
    • I'm not sure on how much foam it took.  It has over 2" on the bottom.  What happens with the cold surface is you have to "flash" the surface with foam then go over it again, it uses more chemical to do the same job.  So the price to do a cold house is more.  The foam comes out hot & creates more heat during the chemical reaction.     The froth paks were more expensive than having it done in my case.
