Coming up Wed 2-20

We have a group coming up this week to fish URL again, it's a yearly trip. 2 years ago I did not catch a fish, last year I caught 1 slap. I'm still driving 400 miles to be there for 4 days and would like to catch more. I've been reading the board and know to move around and what lures might work well. Any tips on places to go would be helpful. We will have a GPS if anyone wants to give up some coordinates they were lucky near.

Thanks for all the info already posted.

Different Jon P. I didn't think about until I was ready to post and can't find how to change it in the user profile.

I hope I can catch fish half as good as Johnny P.

Find one of the guide services and rent a shak. I know it might cost you some $$'s but the guides do a great Job and put you on the fish. I figure if I'm Driving 9 hours to get there it's worth the money to have a guide find the fish for me. Figure if they can't find them & they've been doing it all winter, then I'd be screwed on finding them to.

Anybody hear if the eyes are still biting out of JR'S a few miles? I thought I read a post a few days back about some people having good luck a mile and a half out?

      I didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time

      I could have been wrong but normally you had to pick a zone

      Launched out of McQuade yesterday ,,,, Been fishing the big lake since feb 18th ,,, Had lots of company out in front of the Lester as word got out that the fish were biting ,,, Not a stellar day fishing but it still beats work

      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
