  3. Spring Turkey

    First off welcome to the site ! Fish that area quite often and have seen some good flocks around there. I would get out and do some glassing in the area , especially around some picked corn fields. Right now they are wintered up but will break apart once spring gets closer. Maybe hit up a local bait store and ask around if anyone knows of a spot. Or look at the landowners list that received permits in that area. They legally have to grant permission to hunt there land but unfortunately a lot of landowners will tell you they are full even if there not Good luck in your search.
  4. Spring Turkey

    this will be my first time chasing Minnesota turkeys. Any tips on where to go around Lake Lida area?
  5. When i was there all could find was perch but i only fished for about 3-4 hours all weekend. Not sure on panfish but i know the walleye bit is still pretty good. I'm sure theres plenty of panfish to be had back there though to.
  6. Spring Turkey

    +1 here. I miss the hills of SE MN but when I have birds walking through my yard it’s hard to leave Central MN. Its not like they’re gonna be super easy but I’m trying to get my first with a bow, and that’s not easy. Not yet anyway. The more days I can get in, the better. And sticking around home makes THAT part easier. When I first started hunting turkeys it took me three seasons to kill a bird. Then every year after that was a score with the shotgun for about 20 seasons maybe? I’m going into my second legitimate season of effort with my bow. Hoping two times is a charm.
  7. I spent a little time last summer looking for weed walleyes in Niles Bay. About 10 minutes into my experiment I caught a chunky 22" on a spinner rig over a weedbed in about 10'. The weeds were growing about halfway to the surface but that fish had no problem smacking my bait. I'll keep experimenting this year.... can't wait for open water!
  8. I hear the panfish are kicking it up a bit? Any word out there?
  9. Millacs good fishing or not

    awesome feedback! thank you so much for the info! Ill get up ther next year, i dont want to keep any i just want to catch some nice eyes and northern.....hell, whatever! ive been in a sleeper 5 times on LOW and we only had one real good trip. upper red lake once in a sleeper caught 3 eyes in 3 days. i dont mind if i catch one or two fish, its all about the experience for me on the big water. but the girlfriend is a hard one to convince at times for a return trip if the fishing is slow. were headed to fairbault this weekend, i hope we get into something. thanks again guys! ill post a report on our trip. good luck on the ice!
  10. Spring Turkey

    Well who else is going after long beards this spring? I was drawn for season B again no surprise. There were surplus tags left as there were last couple years. Really like the new approach to not having to apply for the later seasons spreads the hunters out and gives guys like me the opportunity to get after them early Been out doing some scouting and been seeing some big wintering flocks one I was glassing other day had over 60 birds in it! They have really been working over the picked corn lately. Oh cant wait to hear the first gobble of the year

  13. Pat, July is my best time for walleyes in the weeds! I did not cast spinner baits but did pull spinners with 1/2 crawler right along the edges in about 3' to 4' deep water. We were so close to the boat with our lines that we could see our spinners and actually see the walleyes charge out of the weeds and grab our baits! FUN!! Now, thanks to the rustys, those cabbage weed beds are gone. Cliff
  14. License Reminder

    That's the plan. I'e gotten checked quite a few times this winter. It's good to see them out. Watched them get a couple guys last Thursday for too many lines, too many and illegal fish and using jawjackers... Sure is good seeing some of our money at work. Silly thing is the officer checked me 1st, then walked 50 yds to the other guys... can' fix stupid I guess.

  16. Years back I took my brother-in-law behind Anselmo's (SP?), northwest of Jacobson Point in Head-o-Lakes Bay. I was looking for Muskie along the front of the cabbage. He had no gear so he rigged a small to mid-size in-line spinner bait with a white twister tail. He pulled it across the top of the cabbage beds. I was totally surprised when he caught several walleye. I wouldn't be so surprised if he was fishing in front or down in the weeds but he was basically catching on a surface lure in 3-5' of water in July.
  17. Under bite jaw = whitefish! Cliff
  18. Nice. I made my own like that a few years ago but without the usb port. Can run a fan, light, charge phones etc. They are very handy.
  19. Frozen ones work better in my opinion anyway. Haven't bought a live one in 10 years.
  20. Millacs good fishing or not

    We made a day trip a couple of Sundays ago. Fished from about 9:30 to 3:30 and my kid caught 2 walleye- 21" & 25" with a tag. In the past two winters I've made a total of 3 day trips and have a total of 10 walleye from 19-25 inches. I think the numbers may not be a may, but the quality is great. Very similar to the late 90's not as many fish, but great size.
  21. no live ones that I know of just frozen ones. I heard the run started good than the rain came and dirty the river and moved em back out into the lake.
  22. got a nice batch last weekend for smoking. Larger ones.
  23. Brian, Under-bite = whitefish? I have not 'bled' my fish. What's your basic process? Thank you.
  24. The size and color says 'whitefish', but the only way to tell for sure is if it had an under-bite to it's jaw - and that just isn't something this photo allows us to see very clearly. In any case, nice fish! Nice photo! Pat, question for you...ever 'bleed' your fish on the ice before bringing them in to fillet? Make a world of difference in both the fillets you get and the mess the fish makes when cutting them up. Maybe you bled this one in a different way from how I do it though.
  25. Millacs good fishing or not

    Where else can you go and pull so many big walleyes? Just go in knowingly that you aren't going to keep anything. Sleeper option is better than portable . Limited action during the day anyway. Now sunset to sunrise can be game on all night long. We put back 14 over 22" last weekend. When I say we it was myself, wife and two kids under 7. This lake is a blast. Good Luck
  26. Millacs good fishing or not

    Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!
