I would either hit Madison,Tetonka,Elysian,German or Jefferson personally, I know that's a big list, but for me the eyes are in slow mo right know, if you spend alot of time searching and chasing them you might hook into one or two here and there,i'm mainly pursuing the crappie bite that's going on everywhere around here and fishing the eye's only once in awhile, not trying to get your hopes down, but I find this time of year a tough eye bite, were a couple weeks away and a few days of warmer temps before things to start heating up, early ice and late season seems to be the best for me on these lakes. If you do go out and search the best luck I've had is in deep water off of steep breaks where the sand transitions into the mud, run dead sticks or tipups with large baits, Theres a report or two a page or so back that you might want to look at as well, some good info for this area, Good Luck

Hanska for the most part has been slow on the walleyes for the past month. I personally haven't been out there for a couple of weeks because the fishing out there is really never that good during a cold snap, but from what I have heard it has been slow still. I will be out there maybe tomorrow, but for sure Friday and most of the weekend. I will give a report after each outing!

      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.
