I don't have much of a fishing report, I've been up there 2 times and that was to just basically get the fish houses out on the spots, first weekend didn't go so well, had to leave one fish house 1/2 way out on the ice, wheelers couldn't pull it anymore, too much snow, not enough ice to trust bringing the truck out, hooked on last weekend with the truck and pulled it the rest of the way.

Only fished about 4 hours total so far, action is there, threw back a bunch of small walleye, kept one keeper. Found 2 HUGE perch and 1 40" pike.

Glow red seems to work the best so far, didn't seem to matter if it was live bait or frozen. Ice is about 15" plus.

Will be up there this weekend or sometime near new years anyway.

I haven't been up there but my Dad has been up there for 3 days. S L O W W W W is the word but then he doesn't use much for electronics, he knows how to use the GPS and that is it. Beside he usually goes for Pike instead of Walleye but they did manage a few perch I guess, the Walleye they did catch were very small.

I'm still planning on this weekend, I've been going out of Birch all season so far, will be at the Marina in a couple weeks though.

Might bring the sled this weekend and go exploring a little.

I think you should be fine too hopefully this weather won't mess them up too much, Dad had talked to some guys fishing South Tip this last weekend and it sounded like they were doing well.

FISH.....

Thanks for the use of the Vex, worked great, Dan did find his so we had 4 units up there. I finally got to use my Marcum in the portable instead of leaving it in one of the perm. houses and having to ' share ' a screen with Jon. Got to be a battery recharging fest in the evening but we managed well.

It was a great time again, I put a report on the other Buffalo Bay report thread.

Thanks again.....

Mike

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
