Cass Lake Spearing Ban
The MMA has started a advocacy campaign to stop the spearing ban from being lifted on Cass Lake, unfortunately this only works for MN residents but we will have a mass email set up for non-residents next week sometime.
It only takes a minute and gets the word to all of the appropriate people, please pass it along to your friends and family.

I have a very hard time seeing spearing as any kind of a sport.

And for all those interested...there was an article in the Strib today regarding this bill moving out of committee.
The MDAA has been pushing this issue for sometime...and against the better judgment of the DNR. Its time to stand up and tell these public servants that there are plenty of lakes to spear on. This happens to be a naturally reproducing musky lake and also has trophy pike in it. This bill will also let those spearer's who illegally spear a musky 24 hours to self report and not face any kind of fine or loss of license.
After testimony last year at a hearing regarding this bill, there were death threats against certain people involved with this cause.
This fishery depends on catch and release to keep it world class. There is no such thing as spear and realease...

This sportsman vs sportsman scheme is really getting tiresome.
Save the foolish logic that claims sportsmen using a darkhouse spear are hard pressed to release a northern pike swimming under their feet by not throwing the spear; but that same sportsman has no problem releasing one in their hands caught via hook and line.
This foolish rhetoric is no different than any anti, claiming a deer hunter has to shoot every deer they see.
There is enough room on Minnesota public lakes for all of us, the last thing we as sportsmen need to do is ban each other from enjoying the resources.
There are plenty of people out there more than willing to do that for us. No need to play into their hands.
Thanks for your time
