Has anyone had any luck in the WMA's west of the cities? For example the Woodland WMA or GrassLake WMA off of 12. Thinking about trying these this weekend, any info would help. Thanks

I live right by Woodland. It gets hunted hard but there are birds there. You have to work for them. You'll definitiely want to try the cattails with all this snow they will probably be in there and there are LOTS of cattails. I see birds flying from private land and into there all the time but it's real work these days. Good Luck.

Another WMA that is worth trying this time of year is Malardi WMA. It is north of 12 just outside of Montrose. The entire property is just cattails around a lake. But the whole thing is surrounded by corn fields! It is a quick hunt but it is worth hitting late in the season.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
