Dog Days of Summer

2 posts in this topic

A friend of mine and I headed out to nest lake early last friday for a morning of fishing knowing it was going to be a scorcher out, but to our surprise the fishing was fantastic.

We were able to find some walleye action, a good sunfish bite and also some good pike action too.

I ended up with my biggest walleye so far this season, a 25.5" eye that I got a couple pics of before we watched her swim off. Most of the other eyes were quite small, as were all but one of the pike. The sunfish were decent size, in the 8-9" range, but the better ones were out deep in about 20-22' of water. Hopefully I can get a pic up of the walleye I caught and released. I should have taken one with my cell phone camera instead of my one time camera. Oh well, next time i will remember that. Has anyone else been out chasing eyes and having any luck?

      Leftover spring turkey permits go on sale March 20 The 105,464 leftover permits for the 2017 spring turkey hunting season will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday, March 20 at 10 a.m. Leftover permits will be first issued for sale by zone, one zone per day. The following zones have leftover permits, and scheduled sales dates are as follows: Zone 1 - Monday, March 20; Zone 2 - Tuesday, March 21; Zone 3 - Wednesday, March 22; Zone 4 - Thursday, March 23; and Zones 5, 6 and 7 - Friday, March 24 (due to the low number of permits left in these units, sales have been combined into one day). After zone-specific sales, all remaining turkey tags will be made available for purchase Saturday, March 25. Extra turkey tags can be purchased at a rate of one per day until the zone and time period sells out or the season closes. Leftover turkey permits cost $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents – each will have equal opportunity to purchase over-the-counter permits. All hunters are required to purchase a spring turkey license and 2017 Wild Turkey Stamp, unless they have previously purchased the license and stamp or are a 2017 Conservation Patron License holder. Leftover permit purchases will not affect preference point status for future spring or fall turkey permit drawings. Leftover permits can be purchased online through GoWild.WI.gov   and at all license agents. Hunters with any questions regarding permits should contact the DNR Customer Call Center, open 7 a.m. through 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463).
