I was in Canada last week fishing perch...It was a very foggy/hazy day...On the way back abt 3 miles from the U.S. border I spotted, what I thought was land or a large wake. As we approached the whatever, which had to be 300 yards long, black birds that had been sitting on the water started flying...I'm thinking Cormorands ??? I don't think they were geese ???

In any event what is being done to eliminate the Cormorand, if anything ???

Nothing's being done about the cormorants, they're protected because they're a migrating bird. Something's got to be done, sooner than later!!

There have been efforts to reduce cormorants in Michigan for many years now. Do a google search and you'll see exactly what I am talking about. I have included 1 link for you:http://www.outdoornews.com › May 2014

Here is a link for a more up to date report from the Lake Erie/Lake St. Clair Citizens Fishing Advisory Committee that is from April 2015 and specifies where the target control areas are. http://www.michigan.gov/documents/dnr/April2015-MeetingMinutes_490958_7.pdf

Too any club member if you truly want to help, we need a volunteer as a contact point to represent the club. The rep will help stop the bird invasion with other interested groups.

Isn't Stan the field rep for LSCWA.

He is listed in the above link for the meeting on April, 2015, in the meeting minutes...

..."Stan Bydlos pointed out that the proposed MUCC resolution regarding muskellunge spearing has not been voted on and adopted yet."

Good point Shawn but we might need a dedicated person to stay focused on the topic.

Yes, I agree, having a member lead and educate on how to protect our valuable resource, LSC, is vital.

The cormorant may be a long term and ongoing issue that is needed to be kept current.
