Alden

6 posts in this topic

A couple of questions for you other Duluth area icers. Can you get to Alden or Little Alden by vehicle? Even if you need to pull the portable and sled a ways, that would be ok. Also, assuming you can get there, has anybody fished them this winter? Based on the DNR reports, it looks like there might be a few eyes in there...??

Theres no public access on either lake. So no you can't drive on it or pull a shack out.

I have a friend with a cabin on Little Alden and the road in is private and posted as such. There is also a gate across the road. Have fished it in the winter but we caught mostly pike and crappies.

NewMNIceFisher, your welcome even though it wasn't any help to get on the lake. The other two road on Alden are gated plus its all private property as well.

I have a friend there too and fish it once in a while.

I've floated down river many times so if you can get dropped off up river and picked up at Island lake you could fish Alden. Then again you could fish most of the way on your float. You can do it in a day but it wouldn't leave yo a lot of time to fish.

One last thing, If you do float the river hit the area between Little Alden and Alden hard as the smallies love that area. It is just a slow area in the river but the smallies seem to gather in that area. I've had a blast there with Catch and Release.

      Leftover spring turkey permits go on sale March 20 The 105,464 leftover permits for the 2017 spring turkey hunting season will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday, March 20 at 10 a.m. Leftover permits will be first issued for sale by zone, one zone per day. The following zones have leftover permits, and scheduled sales dates are as follows: Zone 1 - Monday, March 20; Zone 2 - Tuesday, March 21; Zone 3 - Wednesday, March 22; Zone 4 - Thursday, March 23; and Zones 5, 6 and 7 - Friday, March 24 (due to the low number of permits left in these units, sales have been combined into one day). After zone-specific sales, all remaining turkey tags will be made available for purchase Saturday, March 25. Extra turkey tags can be purchased at a rate of one per day until the zone and time period sells out or the season closes. Leftover turkey permits cost $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents – each will have equal opportunity to purchase over-the-counter permits. All hunters are required to purchase a spring turkey license and 2017 Wild Turkey Stamp, unless they have previously purchased the license and stamp or are a 2017 Conservation Patron License holder. Leftover permit purchases will not affect preference point status for future spring or fall turkey permit drawings. Leftover permits can be purchased online through GoWild.WI.gov   and at all license agents. Hunters with any questions regarding permits should contact the DNR Customer Call Center, open 7 a.m. through 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463).

      Raining hard up there too JI'm?  Been raining here all day with a couple thunderstorms rolling through to boot.  Hope to still find some good ice up north before it's over.
