Waterfowl production area

9 posts in this topic

Is there a GPS chip that has Waterfowl Production Areas on it? My Lakemaster chip has Wildlife areas on it but not Waterfowl Production Areas.

I believe they are on PRIM maps.

You might check DeLorme, the manufacturer of the Gazeteer.

Unless they've changed PRIM, the DNR does not post the federal WPAs, but last I looked was 10 years ago and never looked back.

WPAs are not noted on the DNR recreation compass on their web site either.

Is there one book that has all the prim maps in it?

Also....from what I have read all WPA's require non-toxic shot...correct? This is different than WMA's......so for pheasant hunting you would need to have both available if hunting private land and WPA's?

If you are on a WPA you need non-toxic shot, period. You can not have lead shot in your possession.

This is one of the reasons I only shoot steel now. We go from spot to spot and I really don't want a ticket for having a couple shells in my pocket.

I'm with boilerguy, I just shoot steel for pheasant hunting, then I don't have to worry when I go back and forth from private land to Wildlife Mangement areas to Waterfowl Production areas. I've shot a lot of pheasants with #2 steel.

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      I use a big zip tie that will slide on and off.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
