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.

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
