I was out there Friday evening and Saturday. There was 8.5

inches where I fished. It was good, but there were some

slushy spots. A wheeler, ok, but trucks, you have to be crazy. The fishing wasn't fast and furious either.

Is anyone having any luck out there? I was out most of the afternoon and evening on Saturday without any luck. I'd just like to know if I'm the only one or just doing something wrong. Thanks

Fished up on Norway on the 7th and 8th of Dec. Friday night we walked out there, bout 2 hours worth of walkin. Once we got out there found anywhere from 8-12" of ice. With all the ATV's and sleepers out there we decided to drive out on Saturday and it was fine. Although we had a little 4 cylinder pickup that doesn't weigh a hair more than a ATV sleeper combo. Got alot of criticism for it but was alot better than walking 2 hours both ways! Fishing was descent with only about a 1 1/2 hour time slot, 4:30-6:00pm. Nothing before and nothing after. Caught everything from 6-10" eyes, smaller sunnies, a couple descent largemouths and even a few smaller crappies. Nothing with size, but definitely made our time worth it.

There is a pretty big village that has developed on Norway. The fishing has since slowed way down. You can still catch a few crappies and walleyes but they are very small and you have to work pretty hard to get those even. I'm moving my house to a different lake today. I get claustrophobic with that many houses that close to me. grin.gif

Fished Norway yesterday. Fish were hard to come by. Managed a 26" pike on a tip-up and a 21" walleye on a jig and fathead combo. Fished next to others we knew. They were catching a few smaller eyes. Ice thickness varied greatly. Where we were it was 14 inches a hundred yards away less then 10. So be careful. People were driving full sized trucks out though. Fished in 10.7 feet of water.

sure is Jesse! I had an account on here back in high school but its been quite a few years since I've used this, so I had started up a new one. Yeah, Jordan and I stopped up to the Green Mill to see ya after fishin, but they said you hadn't worked there in a couple of months. Maybe we'll have to get together and go fishing sometime.

Hey Jesse, Jordan and I are heading up tomorrow morning to fish up there somewhere. Haven't exactly figured out for sure where we're going to try. Maybe Long, Florida or somewhere else. Hoping to be set up a little after one. You'll have to give us a call if you plan on doing any fishing tomorrow or just wanna know what's up with fishin. Either way we'll be out there. Give us a call. 507-430-0501

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
