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.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
