To those that are catching them, are you using flashers or just a fly and dead sticking it? I always had better luck running flashers with a dropper but lately it isn't working. Maybe just a bit early. Hopefully I'll find a bunch on Sunday if all works out. Will be wrestling in Fargo on Saturday.

I ahven't had much luck with the flasher setup yet on area lakes. I've seen one caught on a chubby darter, and other on crappie minnows from a deadstick. I'll stick to my flasher rig; the action should be picking up real soon. I just haven't marked a ton of fish yet....

We filled a five gallon bucket with them on OT on Sunday morning...Most taken on a small pink/white/blue jig a whopper tipped w/ waxworms..Tried the flasher rig and didn't get a single one on it...The bite lasted til about noon...38 feet of water..

Hey Jerkin'm, were your tullies wormy? Some I have caught on OT had those little yellow worms in the meat.

That's what I remembered the last time I kept a few too..I checked them all thoroughly and didn't find any worms at all...If I would have, they certainly would have gone in the trash..Just pulled them out of the smoker..Good eats...They were bigger than the ones I have caught out there before too..

Was out on Wed. morning and 3 of us caught 57 tullies, the bite is on! Fishing in 65 fow and caught them using flasher rigs with an 18" leader anywhere from 20' to 45' down, thank god for the vexilar. Jigged aggresively to get them to show up then had to let the rod be still for them to bite. Hope to get back out Sat morning.

Could be, there was 9 other people fishing out there in the same area. The others didnt have near as good of luck as we did though. We ended up giving quite a few to a couple guys out there that were watching us reel em in one after another while their lines were dead, felt kinda bad for them. They were pretty much non stop jiggin though so I really think that leaving the rod sit still when they showed up on the vexilar was the key. A dead stick line would deffinately not be a bad idea, but hard to tell what the best depth would be for that since they were running in a 25 foot column. Good luck Sat.

We fished from 7 to 10 and they were biting pretty consistantly the whole time. The only reason we left at 10 was cause my buddy had to get to work, they were still going crazy. Seemed like every couple minutes one of us bringing up a fish, probably could've caught almost 75 if we wouldn't have missed so many fish, deffinately some timmid biters in the bunch. Oh well, it was a blast anyway! I'll look for your truck Grand Dad, not sure what I'll be in as we haven't decided who is gonna drive yet. Now the guys are talking about goin after some trout Sat. morning so who knows, I'd like o get back out and catch some more tulibee myself.

Anyone been out to Sybil to catch those big hogs.

I only make it over there once every couple years, but it's worth it to only catch a couple when they're so big.

Don't need a fishing report, just wondering how the access and ice/snow is.

Thanks~

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
