Kevin, I have not been on Norway for awhile. When I duck hunt for the first week of the season. I can catch crappies suspended out in the center. Bass come back into the weeds,spinnerbaits and jig/pig works well. The walleyes do come into the shallows after dark. You'll need to set-up a milk run go around casting to structure. Yes you will get some sheepies but you maybe surprised at the quality of walleyes you do get. I know a guy who has caught several walleyes over 10lbs doing this on Norway.

Jim thanks for the info! kind of new to the fishing thing so I'm just learning! We actually live on West Norway so it is very shallow. Typically we have been doing a lot of Lindy Riggin with a leach catching a ton of Sheephead. When we go into the main lake everyone fishes the same spot so I know where there at I just have to figure out what they are using?? With the Crappies are you just using a bobber and a minnow? I have no Idea what a Jig/Pig is I am assuming some kind of weedles jig of some sort. Im sorry I am not up with the terminology but what the heck is a milk run????????? You have a ton of post and you probably fish about as much as I wish I could. I have a small child so sometimes my time is limited and I have been getting real frustrated when I am on the lake because I don't know what the hell I am doing. Please help any advice would work. Thank you so much Kevin

Kevin where on West Norway are you located? My parents live next to Dilley's, I have fished Norway for several years. When I mentioned a milk-run, look at 5 or 6 main spots that you think would hold fish, then go, spot to spot. The channels have always been a good starting spot. E-mail me, I show you some other spots. jigginjim@aol.com

I bought a house 2 down from Dilley’s the original owner was Charles Shuck if you know him? Do your parents still live on the lake???? My brothers and I bought the place this time last year. Have caught some real nice crappies off the dock early spring but every time we get in the boat all we catch is sheep head! If you had some advice on the lake that would be awesome. Actually I plan on going up there tonight and fishing all day tomorrow!

      Drove all the way up to grindstone this morning from Forest Lake. As I'm driving along the shoreline, I can't stop admiring how beautiful of a day it is, and how great it will be to be on the water. Was totally amped up to fish for some trout! Then I pull up to the boat launch...and it's closed down! :mad: This dredging project has been pushed back for years, then they finally decide to do it on a beautiful sunny day, that I picked to come here...on the last day of the lake trout season nonetheless! Needless to say, I was very upset!

      I bet the state, not the political cronies, would get a lot more money by having the auction on the internet or allowing phone bids.  Heck, put them on the bay of E. 

      Actually DMV and DNR do quite well at their auctions. You win bid, You Pay, You own. No red tape, no collection process, simple and things seem to sell for quite a bit of money. Go and one see for yourself, its quite amazing. Lots of them at the Arden Hills DMV. Hard to collect money over the phone and on the internet. I do believe they will use the same auction process for this property sale as the DMV and DNR are good at it and a lot of buyers will be there. If the internet were to be used, the "political cronies" would need to create a bill, Ear Mark several million to develop a site, create an app, hire 40 to 50 people to manage and than increase taxes to cover the cost much like Obama Care Not a good plan. If your interested, go to auction, bring lots of money, win a bid and own.

      2016 MN auction schedule if your interested in going to one.

      They were dredging there today. Not sure if they are done or if it will take longer.

    • the weather has not been good this past week either, but fishing was still do able. Pike island is a popular spot and I am sure you can find fish there. Gold is. would be worth a try as would the area around the wolf pack. We had 4 nice walleye today and a great fish fry tonight. Heading home in the morning for the season. so good luck

    • I bet we will end up going to red trying to convince the couple guys that dont like sleepers for some reason that a 10x24 sleeper is just like a cabin and that we can bring 2 portables to bounce around if we want. Dont really need a guide ill probably allready have gone there 3-4 times before this trip.... Maybe superior will freeze good this year and I can convince them to go there i guess I just get kinda bored or red sometimes

      Well, got out of the hospital and rehab a couple of weeks ago, Its been a long haul went in on Feb 15, with some massive heart attacks.   Starting to feel better and have hit Fish a couple of times.  Thought I would check out the site and see if traffic has picked up,  Sorry to say not much different, a lot of lookers as usual and not a lot of posters

      Been there and done that.... Not the site but the hospital etc

      In northwest Wisconsin 26 hunting dogs have already been killed this late summer.   Already breaking the record of 23.  Be careful in the northland.

      I guess if you want it bad enough, you'll be there.

      "Oral" auction might be the law when it comes to this type of sale.

      At least one has most of the month of October to shop for recreational land.  Not like there's anything else going on this time of year! :grin:

      Thanks for posting, Rick.  It might be worth looking at that list.

      Thanks for the info!!! Will be up there on 10/5-10/8, have been looking at the weather and I hope they are wrong because looks like rain... Have you ever tried fishing out on pike island area? Brother inlaw drove down there this summer and said there were quiet a few people fishing there.
