You might try a sporting goods store- Cabelas, etc and get a PRIM map or county map atlas. There are a number of Wildlife Management Areas in Rice county. There's one south of Faribault that is pretty large, has some pretty nice cover, gets quite a bit of traffic and I've only seen a few birds on. I haven't hunted it in quite a few years so with the favorable winters and spring nesting periods we've had it should be considerably better.

Smaller areas might be better and have less traffic such as Millersburg and others. Get the PRIM or County atlas maps and good luck!

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
