I have never fished it through the ice but fish it a lot in the summer time. My wife's grandma has a cabin on the lake. LOTS of northerns about 18-22 inches. It's hard to believe you have not got a flag out there. It's a nice little lake!

I used to fish it alot growing up in Annandale. Good lake for sunnies. Maybe lots of those pike migrate back throught the channel into Clearwater for the winter????

Pike, how deep are you fishing? If remember correctly, last year there was a lot of snow on the ice allowing the fish to go shallower than normal. Have you tried fishing deeper water? This past weekend I fished in 27 fow off a sunken island and saw many slimers coming up to inspect the bait. Something else to consider.

      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.
