    While encouraging folks to give MN Fish a chance to build its infrastructure doesn’t seem to be working? How about we start thinking about what it is as anglers that we would like to see better supported? A couple to things I’d like are:

    Passage of the shoreline rules that haven’t been passed since Pawlenty tabled them?

    An accounting of the DNR Receational fishing fund that is generated by watercraft registration fees.

    Increased transparency of aquatic plant management and AIS programs. We continue to subsidize aquatic plant destruction for the benefit of lake shoreowners with dollars meant for Fisheries management.

    We covered the true intentions of MN Fish in the Mille Lacs smallmouth thread, I think that’s all there is to say right?

    You’re still contributing? shock

    Based on Tiffany’s replies though, I’ll wager she’s a student intern. smirk

    A great start.
    I would add trying to stop all the phosphorus and nitrogen that farmers Leach into our lakes and streams through drain tiles.
    It’s hard to believe that the muddy Minnesota river was actually growing a green tint this year.

    2 lines in the summer would be nice.

    Nitrates in my well from the farmers concern me more than what we send to the gulf via the river.

    I have contacted them about 2 lines. Based on their mission statement, a group like this should at least address the issue, especially when 70-80% of the anglers are in favor of a change it’s a perfect issue for them to at least address. As a paying founding member, I’m disappointed that I haven’t received a response from them. ☹

    A reply from my March 22nd 2019 email:

    Hi Brian,

    Thank you for contacting MN Fish! I apologize for the delay in responding.

    We appreciate your email and want to let you know that MN-FISH opposes
    lake access when orchestrated by lake associations. If in the
    future, the DNR determines that access changes are needed, the details
    will be worked out. Our concern is that anglers will be treated like
    anybody else. As you already know, the Wright County plan is no more
    and was not supported by DNR or MN-FISH.

    If you have any other questions or concerns please let us know.

    Sincerely,

    Tiffany
    MN-FISH Representative

    I’ll give them a little credit today. I read through their email today and while not really accomplishing anything yet, they are at least letting us know what they are trying to work on. New hatcheries building and funding and a good chunk of money for launch repairs. I’m all for that. It all hinges on the politicians though.

    But like I said, at least they are starting to actually communicate what they are working on.

    Let’s just hope our politicians are willing to spend a little money.

    It’s starting to become very clear that the only thing worse than a bunch of politicians arguing about what to do with our money is giving MORE money to ANOTHER group so THEY can have a seat at the table to argue about the same damn thing.
    Meanwhile NOTHING gets done.

    Not another dime from this guy, I’ve seen how politics work.

    My guess is no.
