Preference point. I guess it will be another few nights for the flatheads on the river and some extra Morel picking for me.

Good luck to the rest that have not checked.

I got mine fore the second choice season, which makes me happy.

Have to find out later if my wife and niece got one.

I am not REAL happy though, as my Dad is not drawn again. 4 years in a row he wasn't drawn!! Because of him, our land is full of turkeys. And, because of him we have the land.

That just bites....

No hunting for the neighbors either...until after I am done. They are going to be bummed....

Okay now my PP was 3 last year. The MN DNR said I would get a tag this year if I app.So I did that and just checked my number and it said I did not get drawn, and my PP is still at a 3 so just what in the heck is going on? Do they know what they are doing? A guy plans for this then they sucker punch ya.Don't get me wrong I love MN, but I do think they could use some help on the wildlife management end of things....This is not the fisrt I have heard of this either..

Hammer handle and Havoc, you can call the DNR and try to understand why you weren't picked (hammer's dad). I was unaware that they even had a 3pts. Some places are truly over subscribed and it is possible that you have to wait more than 3 years. I can't really say about your exact situation, but if you haven't been picked 4 yrs in a row its probably not because the DNR is dropping the ball. Its obviously a high demand area, or a low permit area.

You can always look into a surplus permit in the same zone you hunt, it just won't be the same days.

Oh yeah...and I got a preference point too. I didn't make a second choice cause we weren't interested in hunting a different season. Looks like we will be chasing with stick and string this year. I can't wait.

Well we didn't drawn this spring. Plus a total of 22 surplus left over. We've never seen it so picked over for this zone but that's the way it goes I guess. It's gonna be tough to get a liscense in our usually area with 4 of us looking. May need to scout some new areas in different permit areas this spring. \:\(

      Hi guys!  I used to be on this site long ago (participating mostly in the Mille Lacs forum), and the system wouldn't recognize my email.  So I created a new user name.   I'm planning to spend May and June in Ely.  My project is to autochart and create maps of a few small lakes I like off the Echo Trail, which I'll do via my Helix I have mounted on my bright orange fishing kayak.   I don't need any advice, as I pretty much know the area and what works to catch fish.  I'm just looking to possibly connect with other Ely anglers while I'm up there.  I'm tentatively planning on starting next week, assuming the "wintery mix" and wind in the forecast abates.  I'll be paddling around a bunch of different small lakes, going back and forth and back and forth, listening to either WELY or WEVE on my radio.  So if you see me, stop by and say hey.

      First off, welcome to the site. The Red River page gets kind of quiet but if you look back at previous posts there's a lot of good info. I've never fished much for cats but when I have I have always used cut up goldeye. I've also heard frogs are good but I have no first hand experience with that.    1- I feel that the fishery in Fargo is excellent and overlooked by a lot of people. The biggest eyes that I've caught have been on the river.  2,3- I normally use a chartreuse twister tail on the river with a jig head. The main reason for the color choice is because that is what I have an abundance of. I've caught them on white and yellow also. I don't use live bait at all unless the kids are along. They're not really able to do much pitch and retrieve yet and the minnows give them a little better chance I feel.  4- the only thing I've used is cut bait so I'd recommend finding some gold eyes or some suckers and chunk them up for bait.  5- last time I looked the ND NR license was something like $35.    My biggest tip for the river and pitching jigs would be that if you aren't getting snagged once in a while your jig is too light. Hung up too often and you are too heavy. I'm normally in the 1/8-1/4 ounce range. I have also caught a bunch of fish pitching cranks. I wasn't a believer until I watched Ed Carlson fish next to me and reel in fish while I kept on pitching my jig and not getting anything. Try something that's got a nice wide wobble. And if you are going to toss anything into the river be sure to remember that anything thats tied onto that line may not come back. I have donated lots of tackle to the old river gods over the years but I have also been rewarded with a lot of fish and some real dandies. These river fish have a lot of fight in them.     Remember that if you're keeping any walleyes or sauger on the red is that the limit is less than the MN and ND bag limit. I have seen more than one person ticketed at the north dam with their stringer of 4 eyes.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.
