Has anybody been to LQP and did any good? I have tried to get over there but had to finish my fall chores around the house. Let me know if anything is going on. Fishhead, is the dam by Granite Falls the one east of the old NSP plant?
Thanks, Ode

Yes that is the one,along CR 40.I did not walk down to take a good look at it,but it looked good from the road.Any dam this time of year I would think would be pretty good.Have you fished it and did you do any good?
I did fish LQP last weekend,lots of little ones still.I did not have to play bumper boats though.at noon there were only2 boats out there.I think Dark 30 and I may head out there again this weekend.At least there is some action unlike near the cities right now.

I have heard things haven't got hot over at LQP yet. Sometimes it is quite late in the year before that happens. Yes I have fished that stretch of river by Granite. There used to be a resort down there called Pete's Point. There may be fishing down there yet, but I haven't been there in many years. I grew up in Sacred Heart, east of Granite. I hope to get up to LQP again. I have been fixing deer stands lately. The flood really raised hell with them. Have a great day!!!!!

Saw a lot of boats today at the Milan bridge while Dark and I were checking out the entire LQP area.We didn't bother to stop and see if they were getting any decent fish.Talked to a guy yesterday at the Marsh Lake dam who said they were still small.I think the rest of the area is a little slow.Got some fish at Marsh lake dam on friday,16 to 19" with a 24" in the mix.

Hi Ode
Yes we were fishing from shore.We thought about taking the boat up there but I thought if there were a few people there the daredevils would come out and start "accidentally" hitting the boat.I fished both sides over the two days that I went out there and noticed that if you want larger fish try the North east side(at the park)if you want more fish but eater size fish the other side.There were maybee a half dozen to a dozen people there on both sides.but it seems they come and go so if you stick it out a while you can get a decent spot.Also most fish were coming from the channels along both sides where the cemented in rocks end and along the spillway edge.All my fish came from my old faithful"yellow/orange jig with a 4"power grub and no bait",but I didn't do any better or worse than any one else using jigs.
If you head over there good luck and let us know how you do.

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15
      Hunt E: May 16-22
      Hunt F: May 23-31 Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.

      Hi Wanderer, I am going up this weekend too.  Glad the weather will be warm! I will try a different pit this time, but had good luck last year.  I hope the fish will be active and hungry.
    • IceHawk

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger.
