Short multi-lake report...

2 posts in this topic

Fished a few SC MN lakes last Wednesday and Thursday. A front came through and may have negatively impacted the fishing. Things seem more stable now so the fishing should improve.

Madison, actually fished it Tuesday night right after the storm. Found some active crappies along the grassy island area. Best depths seemed to be 4-10 ft. Drifting plastics put most of the fish in the boat. Tried trolling rapalas around the same areas and the narrows but only caught 1 big bullhead at dark.

Tetonka. Water was very green and smelled. Fishing was about the same. Spent a total of about 8 hours on the water. Casted shoreline areas were the wind had been blowing and came up empty. Finally, after covering lots of shallow shoreline and some weedline in the hatchery bay, I opted to fish near some other boats on a hump out from Best Point. Graph was full of fish. A few nice gills and crappies were had but nothing fast and furious.

Frances. The goal on this lake was to find some bass. Hammerhanlde pike were on fire however and inhaled everything put in the water. Switched to panfish and found lots of nice gills in 3-5 fow.

Reeds lake lots of smallish bass and a few nice pike. Biggest going 32".

Crappies were hard to come by on most lakes. Madison seemed to provide the most consistant entertainment. All fished realesed. Was going to hit Clear lake in Waseca on the way home but, I heard the sewer backed up in the lake after the rains so I passed. Overall it was a good few days in the boat. Weather was great after the rain grin.gif

      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).
