Does anyone know if the docks are in at the public access?

Yes, the dock was in on the public landing. Mases was closed yet due to dock work. I think it'll be open this weekend. Finding the crappies was not rocket science....follow the crowd, be nice to your neighbors, and have fun. My daughters and I took home a few for the first fish fry of the spring. This weekend should be much better as the water warms.

There are no crappies in this lake. Go west to Goose Lake.

What do you mean "no crappies"? I was out on wednesday and caught a crappie on every cast. You just need to know where to look and you will find great success on this lake.

You are right, the crappies are every where and you will have your limit in 30 mins or more.... heading out there this morning before it thunderstorms this afternoon.

I agree with SWMuskeye you can't go wrong with Goose Lake, Sweede is another great option.

      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.
