Are these numbers for real?

Guys are catching prespawn 25-30lb bags in Sayers.

 

Wow!  I haven't fished there in many years. Maybe I need to take a ride.

How bout when they found the male fish growing eggs. Traced that back to birth control in the water?

No, that was (is) mostly due to endocrine disruptors, which behave like pseudo hormones. Some are chemicals found in everyday products that get flushed.

They said that was lack of pigmentation and did not pose any threat. 
 

 

here is an article you guys can scroll down to the small mouth part. It talks about the migratory species with the dams. It also talks about the research and pharmaceutical drugs that pass through our sewer system.

Dont eat the deer either, they have CWD "zombie deer"

I assume this is a joke.  There has not been one single documented case of chronic wasting disease transmitted from deer meat to a person.  Mostly because the disease lives in the brain and spinal column, which is not consumed.

 

That doesn't mean we shouldn't take it seriously though.  It can devastate a wild deer population over time.  The MN DNR has gone to great lengths to try and limit the spread of it here.  Many states heavily depend on a wild, healthy, naturally-reproducing population of deer.

It has made it into a primate, just not a human

Its essentially a version of mad cow disease in deer.  And if the effects on a human are the same as they are from mad cow disease, I can assure you that you don't want any part of it.

Off topic but thought I share my background as a aerospace engineer. The company I was Director of Engineering for going on 45 years before retiring is a mfr of parts made primarily from aluminum alloys followed by composites materials. As a result very familiar with materials and processes. Chaired SAE committees and several patents.

I say this to for some credibility.

We had a plating facility that had to meet Cal OSHA regulations along with all the mfg regulations.

GE, 3M and DuPont were all material suppliers we used in mfg our products including Telflon. The waste products never exceeded drinking water regulations for California’s stringent levels.

Easy to point at mfr’s for pollution and some are guilty but not all.

We have close friends in NorCal who are 4th generation farmers. I add this to show how our government regulations are ruining this country.

2018 the family farmers had to drill 150’ deeper wells at a cost of 350K for 5 wells. The following year the State outlawed diesel well pumps and required the pumps to electric motors, they complied. 2020 the monthly cost to run the electric pumps after installing wiring was $4,500 a month. 2021 The PG&E designed a solar panel array that required removing a walnut orchard. The solar system worked to lower the cost during pumping but... the local power lines couldn't handle the excess power being generated to pay back the solar cost. The rural community can’t afford to upgrade the power lines.

To this day the 4th generation farmer family is loosing money and maybe forced to sell as they are no longer profitable.

Beware this will be repeated across rural America.

Apologize for the rant, eat fish you catch unless the waterway is posted against it,

Peace,

Tom

Yeah you're right, there shouldn't be any government regulations on anything. Let everyone do what ever they want at any time. Gimme a break dude.

Yeah it was semi sarcasm. I know people who quit hunting over it. I'm the person who pushed for quartering deer in Pennsylvania which was frowned upon and now is the preferred method to prevent spreading cwd. My house is in a disease management area as well.

 

MN will lose their deer hunters interest to wolves long before CWD. There's diehard guys on archery forums talking about hanging it up for good.

There’s carcass restrictions here too in cwd zones. Mandatory testing before the animal can be transported.

 

While it is true that we have wolves, they are only present in the northern 1/3 of the state. I do agree that they should be managed just like any other game, but they are a vital part of the ecosystem because they are an apex predator. I’ve hunted deer in wolf territory for 28 years and I’ve never seen one.

Some of you sound like you'd sprinkle DDT on your food if a billion dollar company told you it tastes good. We really don't know how fortunate we are when looking at our rivers and lakes compared to other parts of the world. Try bass fishing in that river of trash in India.

 

Same people advocating for picking up trash at the ramp dont care when 3M dumps cancer causing chemicals in the river because you can't physically see it and "we'll all die from something!".
