Toms Gobbling

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

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
