Have at it y'all. If the season does open 10/11 down here as the CWAC recommended, I'll be standing knee deep in a North Dakota pothole that morning swatting ducks while you guys back here are swatting skeeters and wondering "where'd they all go?" ;)

Typo on that.....Wont be any water a Fish pt this year.:mad: :fish:
Mike retires this year from his GOVT. held position.


  1. then suddenly, Corps Engineers are dredging the channels and cuts at FP to support more water flow.

  2. The USFWS agrees to finally end the long running battle to NOT segregate MVP/SJBP geese, which means 2/day at Fish Point...

  3. Fish Point crop/cover has never looked better at this time in the recent memory....

Conspiracy?






I THINK SO!!! :evil:
