Weekend Reports

4 posts in this topic

Went up to the Grand Vue flats area on Sunday to get away from all of the yahoos and had an enjoyable day... We fished in about 20 FOW and ended up with 8 jumbos and threw back a bunch of smaller ones... Kind of laughed as I watched everyone drive by and head for Goose Island.. The pack mentality... must be fish over there.. that's where everyones at...

Also...typical... my wife goes out occasionally and as usual she catches the biggest fish of the season.. She ended up catching a 26" (~7 lb.) walleye about 1 hr prior to dark... Nice looking fish... not what I expected to see pop up out of the hole.. Took a few nice pictures and let here go...

Any other fish tales from the weekend?

We were fishing on the south side of Big Hardwood, in 15FOW, and had good northern and perch action in the afternoons, no W's though. The weather was perfect, absolutely perfect.

Curiosity got the best of me, so I ventured over to the crowd via sled to Goose Island to see what was happening and got ONE there... pretty slow. Found another area a about a mile away from the crowd and got 26 jumbos (two guys) and 3 walleyes (saw about 10 eye's on the camera though) fished till noon and went to another "area" to find some crappies. Not a bad morning though!

I usually avoid the crowds to begin with, but just have to confirm my thinking every once in awhile \:\)

The pull of the curiosity was strong... I started a couple miles away from the crowd and ended up about 1/2 mile away... I told myself to hold out... now I have the confirmation that I didn't need to be in the crowd...lol... which we all know...

      Leftover spring turkey permits go on sale March 20 The 105,464 leftover permits for the 2017 spring turkey hunting season will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday, March 20 at 10 a.m. Leftover permits will be first issued for sale by zone, one zone per day. The following zones have leftover permits, and scheduled sales dates are as follows: Zone 1 - Monday, March 20; Zone 2 - Tuesday, March 21; Zone 3 - Wednesday, March 22; Zone 4 - Thursday, March 23; and Zones 5, 6 and 7 - Friday, March 24 (due to the low number of permits left in these units, sales have been combined into one day). After zone-specific sales, all remaining turkey tags will be made available for purchase Saturday, March 25. Extra turkey tags can be purchased at a rate of one per day until the zone and time period sells out or the season closes. Leftover turkey permits cost $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents – each will have equal opportunity to purchase over-the-counter permits. All hunters are required to purchase a spring turkey license and 2017 Wild Turkey Stamp, unless they have previously purchased the license and stamp or are a 2017 Conservation Patron License holder. Leftover permit purchases will not affect preference point status for future spring or fall turkey permit drawings. Leftover permits can be purchased online through GoWild.WI.gov   and at all license agents. Hunters with any questions regarding permits should contact the DNR Customer Call Center, open 7 a.m. through 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463).

      Raining hard up there too JI'm?  Been raining here all day with a couple thunderstorms rolling through to boot.  Hope to still find some good ice up north before it's over.
