Very sorry I missed your original posts.

The Rapids Lake area appears to be a tricky one, as it's on the border b/w 337/338. The map is difficult to interpret, so just to be on the safe side, I usually email the DNR for actual road/river/county boundaries that form the zone.

However, this all may be a moot point, as from the rules:


Under-subscribed wild turkey permits will be offered to hunters who applied in the computer preference lottery but were not successful.

To me, this means that you had to apply for the general drawing to receive a fall turkey permit OR surplus permit. I know this is true for the spring hunt as well.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
