We did very well Saturday. Got on three lakes with two boats. caught about 40 walleyes collectively, most in 8 feet of water. bait of choice seemed to be rapalas. some caught on spoons, lindy rigs with minnows, crawlers, and only one hitting a leech.

Kept total of 12 walleyes from 17-19 inches, released two smaller and the rest were over 20 inches, with the biggest at 24.5 inches. Great day on the water. Great supper with the gang last night, hoping to get out for a couple hours of CPR! Brent

I took the kids, my two, and a nephew out for two hours at noon. We had a great time with the

cpr program. Total of 26 walleyes, from 16 to 18.5 inches. fishing was really fun with three kids in the boat and the fish biting like crazy. we had a total of four doubles, and had one time with all three kids having a fish at the same time! Only landed 1 of the 3! I was pretty busy driving the boat and taking fish off. A couple pics to share from today. Please note that the date on photos is wrong, and the date should ahve read 5-13-07!!

fishking, that is awesome. I am only 12 at heart, so can I come with next time?

We did alright on OT, leeches were best on Saturday and minnows on Sunday.

Got my lift and dock in on Sat. morning. Then in the afternoon I launched the boat and my stearing is stuck. Tried working on it Sat. afternoon and couldn't figure out the problem.

Since it was my 7 year old son's first opener I decided to try and fish off the dock. We kept about 20 sunnies while trying to keep the bass off of our lines. At least it wasn't a total loss for him!

Wish I could have gotten on the main lake.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
