Jessie Lake

5 posts in this topic

Whew, finally, I am getting a chance to head to the "cabin" and do some weekend ice fishing. I haven't been in the area since I closed up the place last November. Anyway, Tim O or Jason, any reports or news on Jessie Lake fishing conditions (craps or eyes)? Tim, did you get any houses out on the lake? Thanks for any updates.

Depending on the weather, we'll probably hit a combo of lakes consisting of Jessie, Bowstring, Cut Foot, and/or our sure thing pannie lake. And of course can't forget the Cannibal Junction for beers and pizza.

Hope all is well with everyone. Woollman

Glenn, Riley's pizza is very good---they make their own and we order them quite often. After spending a full long day fishing on hard water (or liquid for that matter), a nice pizza and beers hit the spot. Actually, most of their food is very good whether it be a burger or steaks/chops.

I usually post when I am in the area ice fishing. If it works out when we are "in-town" the same weekend, we can try hooking up on a lake or at the Cannibal.

I have been spending my one day ice fishing adventures on a lake that's closer to home. The crappies are biting very good and it's more convenient. I'm just looking forward to getting back in the area, as it's my second home, aka, north of the stress zone.

      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.
