I talked to a guy that lives on Long. He said the access is really in tough shape this winter. Sounded like only residents were getting on the lake. My only experience fishing it comes in the spring. About the time you start finding woodticks, the crappies move into the canal by the public access.

Thanks, Cicada, I went today, the access is ok but not a lot of houses out there. I was fishing in about 18 FOW, Something big around 2-3 pounds that took my line at about 7 feet. Vexilar showed a lot of activity on the bottom but none were hungry for waxies, minnows, and minnow heads. It was tough today. the Perch

Dang, Poutpro, that's prob what took my line, I would have been happy with that, if I only knew what it was... that's sometimes what gets ya...but, it's called fishing, right, I will be going back there soon, in looking at the map, there should be some great spots... out, the Perch

I am not saying that it was a pike, just that I know there are a lot of very small ones out there. There are also a few nice walleyes scattered in the mix.

      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.
