Any help on where folks are finding panfish on Big Marine in Scandia?

There's a sunken island on the west shoreline of the north arm, I've always done well there for sunnies and perch in both winter and summer. Crappies are probably gonna be suspended in the deeper water out on the main lake.

we were there on sunday, the first time I have ever fished it. we fished an 18 foot hump that was covered in grass and the smallest perch I had ever caught. it was towards the south end of the main lake. we fished deepest hole closest to the main lake in the south end of the north arm, 30 feet of water, lots of little fish on the bottom, but caught bigger (6-7") gills in about 10 feet. we actually were sight fishing those bigger gills....other than that it was pretty slow saturday, of course I think the weather had something to do with it

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
