I want to let you guys know that the Southern MN Dark House Angling Assn and Southern Crossroads Muskies Inc Chapter 54 are going to hold a public meeting on the plan with representatives from the MN DNR to answer questions, I know there has been some discussion and letters to the editor in the outdoor news in regards to Muskies and Large Pike Plan that may not have all the facts or have some questions they need to address, I hope all those that are not sure about what the plan is about or how it was created to join us.
The meeting will be at Bullheads in Waterville on Thursday May 8th at 7:00 P.M., as far as I know this is the only such meeting to be held in So. MN.
Thank You to the MDHAA for helping us with this gathering, I really appreciate it.
Official Release The Southern Chapter of the Minnesota Darkhouse and Angling Association and the Southern Crossroads Chapter of Muskies Inc. are hosting a joint forum of their membership and the public to discuss the draft long range plan for muskellunge and northern pike. The purpose of the plan is to guide fisheries management of muskellunge and northern pike in Minnesota for the next 12 years. The management goals are to improve opportunities for trophy muskellunge and large northern pike, while also providing opportunities to harvest northern pike.
We've invited Minnesota DNR's Fisheries Program Consultant Roy Johannes and Fisheries Operations Support Supervisor Jason Moeckel to give an overview of the plan and answer questions from the audience. This is a chance for people to share their views and perspectives as the Department works to finalize the long range plan. May 8th at Bullheads Bar and Grill 256 Main St W Waterville, MN 56096 (507) 362-4881 at 7:00 pm,
