Wisconsin non-resident

4 posts in this topic

My son and I have been successful in securing permits for the last 3 years in Wisconsin. We are Minnesota residents. Has anyone had any success securing non-resident permits for the A, B or C seasons in Wisconsin? I had someone from the Wisconsin DNR tell me that non-residents will never get drawn for any of those first three seasons. Also, does anyone know if non-residents have access to the surplus tags that are sometimes available?

As a non-resident, no, you probably will never be drawn for for the early seasons. I have had good luck applying for the weekend of the Wisconsin fishing opener. This seems be be the earliest you can hope for. Yes, you are eligible for the left over tags.

I was told by one of my dad's archery rep's that non-residents in WI should apply for the last couple seasons. I took his advice last year, my first applying and drew a tag. My season started the Wed. before our fishing opener and ended that Sunday. Birds gobbling every morning, I just couldn't close the deal and missed the same gobbler 3 different times w/ my bow. Still a great time though and looking forward to trying it this spring...hopefully! grin.gif

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
