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

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.
