This labs from team 8... I gotta a couple of tips and inside pointers...

I heard that kazoos are the latest rage for the fly down call and a feather duster on a slinky are all you need for a decoy! grin.gif There, that oughta level the playing field... 1st timers always get their bird in the 1st 10 minutes of their season... or didn't you read that far in the rule book yet? Us veterens need to equalize the competition that's been fielded! hehehe I batted a hundred the 1st 4 years and have gone o-fer the last two... thought it was easy... now I'm just lookin' to get the tail out from between my legs! (shhhh don't tell Joel Nelson that though... I think I got him running scared!)

Seriously, what zone and season? Maybe some of us can help out with a little more specifics...

Good Luck!

Ken

First year turkey hunting??? Who picked these teams??? tongue.gif

I think we should email each other, rather than strategize in front of the enemies. shocked.gif

Kiddin.

First off, where are you going to hunt? What season are you hunting? Do you have land all locked up?

Hi Guys:I'll help you carry some of the load! I'll be hunting SD in 3 weeks and then in Wisconsin in zone 2 and then in Mn. down around Sacred Heart on the Minnesota river bottoms.

I'm sure I will tag a bird or 2 in SD. Those Merriams are a lot easier to take than an Eastern.I'm on good land both in Wis. and in Mn. so my chances should be fairly good of tagging a bird, though you never know with these darn birds!

Hey BLB - bag corn is not considered a food plot for turkeys smile.gif

Can you move your couch to your deck; I need to relax when out hunting - also, bring out some coffee about 8am please.

No, it shouldn't be too tough with your method of hunting BLB. There are so many DUMB turkeys running around you don't even need camo or any calls, but I do know your secret.. blush.gif LOL

Finally some words of reason. Even the best turkey hunters get stumped from time to time. I love seeing the trash talking however; it will provide ample verbage to quote after some folks strike out!

PB - No driving your birds down to LackBigBass to help him out!

Muskycrazy,

Some of these others are trying to lead you into the wrong direction. I hope that following is a useful tip.

Be Very Quiet out there until you see one. If you see one yell "THERES ONE OVER HERE"! before it gets close enough to shoot. tongue.gif

I didnt realize turkeys like to be scratched under the chin like dogs did. Then to strangle it and put your tag on it, thats just not right.

Nice necklace too.

That's awesome!

New fodder for Petrowske and his ever-constant quest to prove that all turkeys are white, and come straight from the farm or a supermarket!

      Thanks for sharing those pics ... really enjoyed that!!     Bob

      pretty neat that the train went over.

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.
    • Muskies
      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.
    • JeremyCampbell
      Thats a great view
    • Wanderer
      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser
