5 posts in this topic

Whent out of Adrians on Friday, got set up about 3 in the afternoon an figured this time of day better go shallow, hit 16 feet an drilled, thought that if I caught anything it would be big. Only fish my son an I caught was 27"cher Man was that a thrill, as much as I icefish thats my personal best through a hole. Pictures an a release. Sat. I proceeded to dig out my sleeper from Twin Island an my son sat an monitered the rattle reels an filled out on walleyes by noon, had some slow time an peeled off the skirting an chiped out the tires an stuff, nick kept fishing for fun an everytime I went outside he caught a fish, when i would come in he'd say " dad get out so I catch a fish " Man did we have a good time. We or I should say he caught 30 plus walleyes from 15 to 19.5 Did dads heart good. He's a slightly autistic with aspergers syndrom an his interest are very narrow but intense an fishing is'nt one of them. The Good Lord really shone on us that day. He did'nt baulk on any of the effort that it takes to go icefishing an was as average as any kid out icefishing.I wont forget that day ever. Sun. brought clouds an snow an we picked up two an went in at eleven to pack up an leave. This weekend we are him an I are taking his buddy upfor onelast sleeper weekend an I hope the fish are on.

We went out (group of 5) on Adrian's road on the 16th and 17th. My buddy and I were in one portable, and three others in another. Friday, we were in about 26 fow and got set up about 1 pm, caught a few fish, couple walleys and sauger. We had heard that there was a pretty good bite in around 14-16 towards the evening so about 6 pm we moved into about 14 fow, between 6 and 9 got one eye at 14.5". Went back out early saturday morning and got to 27 fow and it was good action pretty much all day. We did keep a limit each and I got a fat 11.5" perch. Check out the photo sharing forum for some photos of the fish. We will deffinately be back up there next year, planning to make it an annual trip.

Thanks for sharing your good time and special moments with your son. I also had a special needs child stay with us for a while (we were foster parents), and I recognize that you have to cherish those moments that are special in between the hard times.

      People interested in deer still have time to contribute ideas and feedback about possible deer management topics that will shape Minnesota’s first-ever deer management plan, according to the Department of Natural Resources. Possible deer plan topics and an online comment form can be found on the deer plan page. Comments also can be submitted by email to DeerPlan.DNR@state.mn.us and people can attend public engagement meetings that will wrap up Thursday, March 2. Online and email comments can be submitted through Sunday, March 5, and people can both comment electronically and attend meetings in person if they wish. The DNR strives to maintain a healthy wild deer population that offers recreational and economic opportunities, while addressing conflicts between deer, people and other natural resources. Habitat management, hunting, research and monitoring are several primary tools used to manage the Minnesota deer population. More information on deer management is on the DNR website on the deer management page. ## Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Ever wonder how pure maple syrup gets from trees to the table? Visitors who come to one of the free programs at Minnesota state parks will find out everything they need to know to make a batch of syrup in their own backyard, using basic tools from around their house. Programs start this weekend at Whitewater State Park (near Winona). Options include a morning program from 10 a.m. to noon or an afternoon program from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25. Sign up by calling 507-932-3007, ext. 226, or emailing sara.holger@state.mn.us. Additional maple syrup programs will take place at several Minnesota state parks throughout March and early April. For the complete schedule, and more information about how to tap trees and make maple syrup, visit the maple syrup page. Some programs encourage dropping by any time for a demonstration of syrup-making in progress; others offer hands-on instruction with a taste of the finished product. Participants will learn how to identify and tap the right kind of tree as well as how to boil the sap until it is sweet enough to serve on pancakes, waffles or ice cream. Historically, the best time to collect sap has been between mid-March and mid-April, when temperatures are in the high 30s to mid-40s during the day and below freezing at night. It usually takes 30 to 40 gallons of sap from a sugar maple tree to get a gallon of pure maple syrup. The maple syrup programs at Minnesota state parks are free, but vehicle permits are required to enter the parks ($5 for a one-day permit or $25 for a year-round permit). Due to space limitations, some programs also require advance registration. For more information, call the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or 888-646-6367 or 651-296-6157 (8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday).

      Most ice on the lake is still safe for travel. You just need to use a little common sense and stay away from current areas and possibly getting to close to shorelines, especially South facing ones. Could be 6" of water on the ice in some areas all right but I found only about 3" to 4" on the ice on Tuesday. That will run off or refreeze with a couple of cooler nights and we will have very good going for at least a couple more weeks. Cliff

      Minnesota fishing, hunting and trapping licenses for 2016 expire Tuesday, Feb. 28.  Licenses for 2017 are now available wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold, online  and by telephone at 888-665-4236. All 2017 fishing licenses become effective Wednesday, March 1. New licenses are required for 2016 hunting and fishing seasons that continue past Feb. 28. Customers who purchase online via a smartphone won’t receive a conventional paper license. Instead, they’ll receive a text message or email that serves as proof of a valid fish or game license to state conservation officers. A printed copy of the text or email also can serve as proof of a valid license. License fee dollars support the ongoing work of DNR fish, wildlife and enforcement staff to conserve, enhance and protect our waters, fields and forests. Minnesota State Lottery and Legacy Amendment dollars are not available for the regular costs of doing that work. Learn how the DNR spends license dollars on the License Dollars at Work page.
