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.

      Just got back from 2 days out of Walleye Retreat. Fishing wasn't on fire, but we ended up with a limit for 5 guys and a nice fish fry. Walleyes were 2:1 over saugers and most were in the 14-15" range. The keeper saugers were 14"-17". We fished in 29 FOW and had steady action throughout the day, with most of it being 10:00-3:00. Biggest walleyes 19 and 23 were 8' off the bottom. As others have posted, we had LOTS of lookers, who would not commit. Hottest bait was a plain red hook for deadstick and a small, gold "Slender Spoon". That caught 70% of the fish. I know others out of the resort struggled, so luck continues to be the variable.

      It really slowed down since this warm-up began last week. The fish seem more scattered now. I think they're on the move to deeper haunts. I bet it'll pick up shortly since this is a stable warm front.

      Nice work Frank. I look forward to the day that I can say that I am fishing a lake that I fished 30 years ago.

      This year I will be able to leave Finn at home, so I can fish. @Cret Jigs @Shack Anyone I missed come and join the fun. Let's get this set so we have time draw a crowd!
