I'll be headed out next week/weekend for fishing opener; always get drawn for a tag that weekend. I'll let those guys that fish twice a year have thier fun next weekend while I'll hopefully be shooting my Tom. I'll probably get some stream trout fishin' in as well but it's getting harder to do that since they keep extending the shooting hours. Hopefully I can report back with a successful trip.

A buddy of mine shot a nice one just south brainerd. He said that the set up and along came six hens headed out to a field. After calling and waiting, eventually a tom came strutting down the same path as the hens. 20 yard shot. It can't get much easier than that. It's great to see good turkey hunting getting closer to home.

I shot my first turkey over in Battle Lake during season A.

There are pictures on the turkey contest results thread of the turkey hunting forum. Borch posted them for me.

24 pounder, 8.5" beard. It was a lot of fun. My daughter had her tag last weekend but we didn't have as good of luck.

I usually just hunt on my 300 acre property that I own.. There are lots of turkey, deer, grouse, and other wildlife in there.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
