I got drafted last year and the year before. From what I've heard there hasn't been enough applicants. I thought the numbers last year was the weekday hunt they were short around 150 and the weekend about 200. These are just numbers guys in line at the hunt heard about. Hope this helps.

They were not short because the last 2 years our group has not been picked. But it was 3 years in a row before that.

I have always went in as a group. I think that it does make a difference if you change group leaders. When you join a group that has been started you are under the person that starts the groups MDNR # not your own. Not sure but I think it makes a difference. We have odd numbers of people that go each season because we have a party of 8 of the low end and as many as 13 depending on the year so we also have multiple groups.

Our group of 3 did not get drawn for the weekend hunt last year. Before that we had been drawn 3 years in a row. Our group leader changed last year also, so maybe that does make a difference even though the people in the group stayed the same.

I emailed the DNR last year after we didn't get drawn because I wanted to know which hunt had the best odds. When they replied back it showed that both hunts had more applicants than permits but more people applied for the weekend hunt. So your odds are better of getting drawn for the first hunt.

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .

      The waves have been bigger than i've ever seen the past 3-4 days on Ottertail.  Don't know how that is affecting the walleye bite... but its a mess out here.
