I've got a buddy with a cabin in that area...

Not sure if you're talking about the lake in Backus or just the area... But there's a lot of small lakes around there... Hard to find a strong Walleye bite in many of them... But there's some good piking, and some decent pan fishing...

If you're into Bass, a lot of day can be spent chasing them on the small lakes in that area.

Our cabin is on pine mountain lake, but we are going to jump to a few lakes in the area. We are going to be mainly looking for bass, but might try for some walleye's also. I mainly fish the mississippi river near Winona, and I have never caught a musky before! So that would be an added bonus. ty for the report

There are many good lakes in that area. Birch,pleasant, webb, leech is a short trip of maybe 30 minutes. Mille lacs is on fire for both wallys and smallies. Check the lake finder on the DNR website for lake surveys in the area. We tried a lake east of hackensack after we check out the lake survey. We caught wallys at 12 noon , bright sunny sky.

      I didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time

      I could have been wrong but normally you had to pick a zone

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase
