White bass will be in their active spawning run up till almost Memorial day. Then they'll change into summer patterns - moving in deep water or surface feeding when it suits them - mainly yearling fiddys will be active over July and August. Sometimes they'll be schooling behind dam's all summer long...

Had a blast yesterday on the Minnesota. Started off looking for back water areas. I found some but they weren't producing. So I started fishing current seems. Bam! fist fish of the day a nice chucky white bass. I caught and released 6 whites in about 15 minutes and it shut off. So I kept working likly looking areas as I made my way down river. Picked up some more white bass, one of which was 16-17 inches. During the heat of the day I tried for cats, buffalo, and sheep head using a snelled crawler. On the first cast my plan was to cast out put the rod in the holder and call my wife. Well I didn't even get the phone out and the rod tip was doing the dance. Set the hook into what was my largest channel cat of the year 27" and 10 pounds including the landing net. After that I couldn't keep the sheepies off my line until I was out of crawlers. As I headed back to the landing I was able to hit a few spots that I passed by on the up and was only able to catch one more white bass and one sheephead. Thanks Chris Hanson for your help and advice. I have a blast. grin.gif

      Leftover spring turkey permits go on sale March 20 The 105,464 leftover permits for the 2017 spring turkey hunting season will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday, March 20 at 10 a.m. Leftover permits will be first issued for sale by zone, one zone per day. The following zones have leftover permits, and scheduled sales dates are as follows: Zone 1 - Monday, March 20; Zone 2 - Tuesday, March 21; Zone 3 - Wednesday, March 22; Zone 4 - Thursday, March 23; and Zones 5, 6 and 7 - Friday, March 24 (due to the low number of permits left in these units, sales have been combined into one day). After zone-specific sales, all remaining turkey tags will be made available for purchase Saturday, March 25. Extra turkey tags can be purchased at a rate of one per day until the zone and time period sells out or the season closes. Leftover turkey permits cost $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents – each will have equal opportunity to purchase over-the-counter permits. All hunters are required to purchase a spring turkey license and 2017 Wild Turkey Stamp, unless they have previously purchased the license and stamp or are a 2017 Conservation Patron License holder. Leftover permit purchases will not affect preference point status for future spring or fall turkey permit drawings. Leftover permits can be purchased online through GoWild.WI.gov   and at all license agents. Hunters with any questions regarding permits should contact the DNR Customer Call Center, open 7 a.m. through 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463).
