Well, for sure it would be Dec. 10th. Dec. 9th is the end of the state wide muzzleloader season. If there isn't an open gun season where you are hunting you would be good before that.

You have to wear blaze starting this Saturday when muzzle opens and where it thru the end of muzzle which is Dec. 9th.

If you are bow hunting this week in 3B you will need your blaze.

If I understand the regs correctly, if there is any firearm season going on (rifle or ML) you are required to wear blaze orange.

Correct, if there is a gun or muzzle loader season going on in the area you are bow hunting you need to wear blaze orange.

What about a bowhunting in a city hunt? No rifles/muzzleloaders around............gray area?

No gray area shiner. If you are in a city hunt where there are no firearms allowed you do not need to wear blaze since you are not in an area open to firearms hunting.

I bowhunted in the city last weekend and again this weekend and blaze is not required

Thanks Powerstroke, I figured that was the case, but wasn't quite sure. Can't wait to get back in the stand in all camo!

      Don't go giving too much notice there Royce!    Been kinda wondering if a yakking GTG would pop up some day.  Would be a great time to share a paddle and see how others rig their gear for fishing, or whatever.  And maybe do some demo paddling in other kinds of yaks than what we're paddling now.   Now, who might be able to put something like that together??

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Welcome to our Forum Muzzy!  You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.  They can give you a lot of good information that will help you put fish in the boat for the rest of your trip.

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow
