I guess no one told the geese they would be applying poison to the lake this month. I wonder what made more than 100 people sick over 4th of July week end? The guy applying this poison told me it was safe and he was licensed to poison the weeds? If it is so safe why is this guy dressed in a space suit with a mask and rubber gloves?

We got plenty of rain this spring and fishing was good. I am hoping that summer is as productive as the spring has been! I had fish last night

Do YOU let your CHILDREN or GRAND CHILDREN swim in this lake?

Why is there NO RESTRICTIONS for SWIMMING or FISH CONSUMPTION? This sign was posted right next to the beach? How is this LEGAL? This is ROUND UP or AGENT ORANGE for water!!!

TOXICOLOGICAL EFFECTS
ACUTE TOXICITY
Diquat dibromide is a moderately toxic chemical (34). It may be fatal to humans if swallowed, inhaled, or absorbed through the skin (4). Concentrated solutions may cause severe irritation of the mouth, throat, esophagus and stomach followed by nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, severe drying out of bodily tissues, gastrointestinal discomfort, chest pain, diarrhea, kidney failure, and toxic liver damage (24, 36, 42). Very large doses of the herbicide can result in convulsions and tremors (36). Rats given lethal doses of diquat showed few signs of illness during the first 24 hours. They then exhibited lethargy, pupil dilation, respiratory distress, weight loss weakness and finally death over the course of 2 to 14 days after dosing. Similar patterns of symptoms occurred in mice, guinea pigs, rabbits, dogs, cows and hens (38).
Diquat dibromide is acutely toxic when it is absorbed through the skin and the possibility for poisoning increases with repeated exposure (35). Dermal adsorption is higher where the skin is cut or abraded (36). Although absorption is reportedly low following dermal exposure, the demonstrated toxicity of this compound is sufficient to raise serious human health concerns. Small amounts of diquat can cause skin irritation and sores, as well as delayed healing of cuts and wounds (37). When absorbed through the skin, some commercial concentrate formulations of diquat can cause symptoms similar to those that occur when it is eaten. There have been reports of workers who have had softening and color changes in one or more fingernails after contact with concentrated diquat dibromide solutions. In some instances, the nail was shed, and did not grow in again (18). A single dose of diquat was not irritating to the skin of rabbits. Repeated dermal doses cause mild redness, thickening, and scabbing (38).
Diquat dibromide also causes eye irritation (5, 27). Several cases of severe injury to human eyes have been reported after accidental splashings. In each case, initial irritation was mild, but after several days, serious burns and sometimes scarring of the cornea developed (12). Moderate to severe membrane irritation occurred when diquat was put in the eyes of rabbits (5).
Direct or excessive inhalation of diquat dibromide spray mist or dust may result in oral or nasal irritation, nosebleeds, headache, sore throat, coughing, and symptoms similar to those from ingestion of diquat (5, 18).
The amount of a chemical that is lethal to one-half (50%) of experimental animals fed the material is referred to as its acute oral lethal dose fifty, or LD50. The lower the LD50 is for a chemical, the more toxic it is; the higher the LD50, the less toxic it is. The oral LD50 for diquat in rats is 120 mg/kg, 233 mg/kg in mice, 188 mg/kg in rabbits, 187 mg/kg in guinea pigs and dogs. Cows appear to be particularly sensitive to this herbicide, with an oral LD50 of 30 to 56 mg/kg (1, 42). The acute dermal LD50 for diquat dibromide is 250-400 mg/kg in rabbits (37).

There are lots of fish to eat, and many to catch for fun every year in Minnetonka!

Pike


I found back bay that is usually to shallow to get my boat into that was so full of hungry Bass I have no idea how many I caught. I did pick up a nice Northern and a few Sunfish. One of these photos has the dorsal fin of a Muskie following my Sunfish up to the boat.

Thanks for the tip on the Vexilar Fish Scout, it looks like a fun toy to add to my collection. Looking for Crappies my first time out in my boat and I never found them. I did find a place with more Sunfish than anyone ever needs to catch, and Bass galore that were hungry for Wax Worms. I also saw my first Muskie this year, probably snacking on Sunfish. I have a couple of aerators running in  plastic tub I use as a live well, when I pumped the water out to get this picture, the Sunfish looked dead but they are so pumped up on oxygen when I pump water back in the are ALL full of life. The season opens this weekend and the lakes will be a busy if the weather forecasts are accurate. Good luck to everyone going out. We need more posts with photo's on this sight.

New Lures I can't wait to use!

Jemstone90- Spend the extra cash and get a Vexilar Fish Scout. My buddy has one and works very well and they have a color version as well. Keep an eye open during the summer, might be able to find a bargain.

This should be my last time on the ice for 2019, the slush was 2-4" deep with water and Ice under it. My CFish camera is more of a head ache than its worth, and I would NOT recommend it to any one. I might have gotten 5-10 hours of use out of it, and the photo below shows what the viewer shows me most of the time. There is NO ONE to take it back to and I can't find anyone to call or e-mail for assistance. To pay another $150 bucks to Cabela's and have someplace I could actually take it back to If I had these problems, would be worth it.

Lots Of Crappie

I will have to buy a better camera if I want to have one that works.

A few portables on Black Lake and a couple of snowmobiles. It is finally above zero, and now we are getting the snow which should help the lake level to come back.

Lots of Pan Fish

Check out the link above.

I saw humor in the photo below of the pool, the other two remind me how desolate Minnesota can be in the winter.

This is actually from the 2019 Holes 4 Heroes on Medicine Lake, but since there is nowhere to post fishing reports for Medicine Lake I will post it here.

Pike on Minnetonka

This event made me feel the 4 years active duty I served in the Army was appreciated There were hundreds of people that showed up for this event and the prizes were quality fishing gear, donated by local sporting goods stores. I did catch a 25" Northern that was not in the slot big enough to enter into the contest, but the group I was in did catch the biggest and second biggest fish entered. One of the prize winners came all the way from Northern Illinois and has been coming for this event for a few years now. I will participate in this event in the years to come, and I hope other veterans take advantage of it too!
