Pennsylvania Game Commission keeps Saturday opening day for deer season despite many lobbying for Monday opener

In what has become a common theme at Pennsylvania Game Commission meetings, the first day of the rifle deer season remained a controversial subject once again when the board met Jan. 27. 
During a lengthy public comment period that featured 62 speakers, the American marten reintroduction plan and the first day of deer season were the dominant topics. When it came to the latter, many of the speakers – 21 – favored changing the opening day back to the first Monday after Thanksgiving, while three told the board they wanted it to remain on Saturday.

A Pennsylvania lawmaker recently proposed new legislation that would end the ban on Sunday hunting in the state.
According to a memorandum posted Jan. 30 by Rep. Mandy Steele, D-Allegheny County, seeking cosponsors for the bill, the legislation would repeal the state’s prohibition on Sunday hunting and would give the Game Commission the authority to “decide when and how Sunday hunting is permitted.”

James Lindner: Understand the weed factor for icing crappies

Throughout the winter, crappies are among the most popular targets of ice anglers. Most experienced hard-water fishermen are no stranger to the all-too-familiar basin crappie bite. It’s a relatively simple pattern: Crappies dump into soft-bottom basin areas to feed on concentrations of blood worms and zooplankton. And the anglers follow.
While such bites are rather predictable, the truth is that not all crappies move to deep water during the winter months.

Minnesota’s popular Fish Lake near Maple Grove poised to drop ‘impaired’ status

Minnesota’s Fish Lake, a 232-acre lake bordered by a regional park with a swimming beach and public water access, achieved the phosphorus reductions necessary to be considered for delisting in 2017, after the first dose of a two-part alum treatment.
Alum treatments are applied in two half-doses to avoid a significant drop in pH, which could harm fish and invertebrates. Half-dose treatments also improve the efficiency of alum to bind to the phosphorus, locking it up within the upper layer of sediment.
