Depending on what you want to do with the plot. Is it just for food, an attractant, or a hunt plot? A good piece of advice that I have is to plant it late if it is used for either of the latter....say late July - Mid August. The thought behind that is once hunting season rolls around all plants in the woods are grown up just like your plot if you plant it early. If you plant it late it is going to be tender greens in mid-September until freeze. I have planted High Rack, Biologic, and have mixed my own with rye and rape (canola) which has worked well. It really depends on your use of the plot although.

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

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
