Going to start scouting Turkey soon and just wondering if they have started gobbling yet or is it still a little early in the game.?

The wintering groups are starting to split up! I’ve been hearing gobbles for a week or so now. I’ve also seen a few jakes out strutting for the ladies already and with the warm weather continuing to move in. It shouldn’t be long before the old boys are joining in.

I did a turkey clinic in Redwood Falls on the 17th and one of the guys told me he's seeing birds in that area strutting and gobbling already. It won't be long now. Can't wait until April 28th.

The trip to ND was pretty good except for all the snowcover. Last fall we didnt see or hear much for turkeys but boy did we see them that weekend. Yes, my hearing is good but my wife say selective. smile.gif

      The statistics from my journal for the 2016/2017 spearing season have been compiled. I had 21 sits, on 7 different bodies of water across 3 MN counties (Cook, Washington and Hennepin). Average sit was 4.4 hours. Number of pike seen averaged 1.08 per hour. Along with some old favorites, I added some new spots and 3 new lakes to the repertoire and they ended up being new favorites.    I saw, and passed on many pike over 30 inches. I was fortunate enough to have great views of 4 muskies, and more than a few big bass. Interestingly I only saw one walleye, one bowfin and one carp. Those numbers are down.     Here are a few of my pictures from the past season. Not the best quality, but they are from an old LG slider phone.    A trio for the pan and  the days swim team (Johnson red/white and sunfish; Dennis Bertram shiner). Dave Pawlak spear. Larger pike had been attacked by a bigger fish…she was cut up and scaled ahead of the dorsal fin.      Pike, some panfish and a Kraemer 9 tine spear.      I have a few more pictures of some fish n the hole and will try to add them later when I have time.
