Mn DNR activities

Minneapolis, MN

#1 Jan 10, 2012
Starting in 2012 the Mn DNR will be pulling over vehicles pulling boat trailers and checking for:

Weeds
Open container violations
Trailer hitch
Zebra mussels
Drain plug must be removed
Invasive sticker on boat
Life jackets
Tie downs
Tires
Boat license
Trailer license
Vehicle license
Insurance on vehicle, trailer as needed
Loose items in the boat, not fastened
Water in the boat

Again, trailering a boat in Minnesota takes on new meaning this year. Ya'll be careful now or the Gestapo MIGHT get you.

Fines start at $50, Minnesota is broke.

Being big boating fans...My first though was... oh crap.... Michigan will be next.

And my second thought was...oh sure, more regulation of course... this is MN....liberal land...

Liberals love regulation and strangulation.

DNR looking for zebra mussels that are being transported by waterfowl.. This is a DNR cash cow, milking it for every last dime.

EPA...DNR....oh boy, don't even get me started....lol

My youngest son spends his summers as a first mate on a salmon charter, my oldest son is a certified marine mechanic working at a very large marina. They have their own salmon fishing boat, love the great lakes, are very knowledgeable and occasionally chuckle the at that kind of government nonsense.

Here is a another "gem".
The government always issues warnings about the danger of ingesting mercury which is found in great lake fish.

The truth is.....
“Mercury mostly settles in the fatty tissue, bones and organs of fish. When the WHOLE fish, including... the fatty tissue, bones and organs... are ground up, yes, there is a higher concentration of Mercury.
But.... most people eat fillets, minus the fatty tissue, bones and organs, and one would have to eat 38,000 pounds of fillets in a 24 hour period to be a problem.

I repeat… 38,000 lbs. in 24 hrs….

Are they stopping DUCKS ? Do they check their feet when they fly over ?

Do they duck cuff on ducks ?
