Walleye harvest cap set

State and tribal biologists have reached agreement on how many pounds of walleye could be harvested by Mille Lacs Lake anglers over the winter season, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The agreement paves the way for a decision later this month on the state?Äôs ice fishing regulations.

At a meeting Oct. 15, DNR and tribal biologists agreed to set the winter harvest cap for state anglers at 5,000 pounds or less. The total walleye harvest last winter was 3,100 pounds. The DNR and the Chippewa bands were able to reach this decision because September fish assessment data show that pounds of spawning-age walleye and numbers of walleye from the 2013 year class were above established benchmarks.

?ÄúThis decision allows anglers and businesses to look forward to some harvest opportunity during the upcoming winter angling season that begins Dec. 1,?Äù said Don Pereira, DNR fisheries chief. ?ÄúWe?Äôll announce a final decision about the details of the ice fishing season by the last week of October, following an Oct. 21 meeting with the Mille Lacs Fisheries Advisory Committee.?Äù

Minnesota families can make memories on the farm this fall

Visit a local Minnesota Grown farm this October

Minnesota?Äôs autumn is an opportune time to enjoy local foods and fun on the farm. Picking fresh apples, finding the perfect pumpkin, and exploring a crop maze are a few ideas. The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) encourages families to take advantage of the beautiful fall season and visit one of Minnesota?Äôs many farms. The popular Minnesota Grown Directory is a great resource to help plan a visit. It highlights family friendly activities and convenient contact information for local farms across the state, all in one place.

Farmer Peggy Bronk of The Great Pumpkin Patch said, ?ÄúOur pumpkins are just beautiful this year.?Äù The Great Pumpkin Patch is a family owned and operated farm near Winona, Minn. Bronk sees many families annually; building fall memories and traditions to last a lifetime. ?ÄúIt?Äôs a very good family activity. Everyone can get outdoors, plus the kids can get their hands in the dirt and have a little fun.?Äù

Fall tree care

Soybean harvest is wrapping up and corn harvest is in progress in the region. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, National Agricultural Statistics Service Oct. 4, report, topsoil and subsoil moisture both appear to be in good condition. Ninety-one percent of Minnesota?Äôs corn is mature, which is 2 weeks ahead of last year and 8 days ahead of the 5-year average. Soybean harvest was 69 percent complete, which is 48 percent ahead of last year and 25 percent ahead of the 5-year average. This year has been ideal for crop growth and development and for home landscape plants.

At the beginning of autumn, stop watering until the leaves fall from the trees. Once they fall, water your trees up until the ground freezes so they will have enough water to make it through the winter drought. Trees and shrubs, especially conifer trees and trees and shrubs planted in the last three years should be watered generously.
