Morels

9 posts in this topic

I know this is on the hunting forum, but just curious if anyone else is finding them in this area. I went out yesterday and knabbed about 30 or 40 in one spot, seems like they are just getting going around here, they did taste good though with the fresh walleye that I brought back from Iowa, just wanting to see if anyone else is finding any yet, mixture of grey and yellow, which i thought was strange, normally the greys come first but this year it seemed as if it were 50/50

I found some on sat. pm, about 1/3 a grocery bag. alot were real small and left alot behind to get bigger. then i hear that they will dry up if you let them grow too long. how long is too long?

Oh they were good, can't quite say that there as good as a true mn eye, but definately good, especially with the morels, I will say though that getting out the week before has taken a little of the enthusiasm out for the upcoming weekend, even though I only caught a couple, I'm still kicking myself for not hitting that windy shoreline harder and pitching the jigs to them, instead of drifting in the morning, I know they were in there should have spent a little more time on them, oh well that's reserved for next year,

As far as the Morels go, I wouldn't wait to long, sometimes the greys only get an inch or two, the yellows will get bigger, but if i see a grey i usually grab it that day, ive seen greys and yellows that were all dried out or the bugs got to them before i did, so even though it's nice to have them get a little bigger, it doesnt take much for them to go bad either. This rain should really help out.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
