Was out there last night for a club tournament. The lake itself is in bad shape. There is alot of top water weeds that is killing the fishing. For myself, and most of everyone else, we found all our fish still up in the shallows. We were fishing alot of pads with jigs, and had alot of luck. Monster fish, with a few smaller ones. All the other gus that fish deep, ended up with 2-3 fish for there bag.

We fished this lake earlier last year, and looking at it this year, man that lake gets out of control with the muck on the top.

I noticed there was a league out there last night. When you say monster fish how big are you talking?

The weeds are getting bad. I guess the head guy of the lake association doesn't think that the weeds are that bad. And he is not listening to anyone else that lives on the lake from what I hear. But something needs to be done regarding the weeds. Did you see a lot of dead fish? Or how do you know that the weeds are killing the fish?

Also, What kind of jigs do you use that are weedless for the shallows like that?

All i have to say is that guy must be sick, becuase that lake is horrible, and there needs to be something done to it to make it where it belongs. I remember when this lake was the bomb, and now going to it last night, was horrible.

I agree. I think the only way something will get done is if the homeowners get the DNR involved. If the lake association is not willing people will have to bypass them and go to the DNR I guess.

well i can tell you this. the lake is getting out of hand, and something needs to be done before it gets way out of hand. That is a great fishery, and i would hate to see it go bad.

      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

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
