BBG,

Haven't been up there (north end) very much lately. Got a 44 on a small bucktail a few days ago. Saw lots of lazy fish up on the shallow sand. Had a really short feeding window. One went after it boatside, but didn't hook up. Shortly after, we caught the 44. Then numerous lazy follows. Then nothing. I'd recommend you be there early or late. I'm not hearing about much going on there during the day.

Tim said it.The North end has been a bit off lately, but the fish are still there. The diversity of structure South has been better during the day.Some big surprises at 2:00 in the afternoon.The pm bite is still king.Big blades have been the ticket all season. Fish the same spots you would during the day.Be careful and make sure your lights etc. are in working order before heading out.Also, prepare for success at night.Clean/organize the boat and have lighting and release tools ready.Most of all have fun and feel the rush when she eats at boatside.Extreme fishing at it's finest. Steve

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
