I had a 1 in 5 chance, make that 1 in 3, two tags went to land owners.

I don't get it, zone 435, Morton to Granite Falls a ton of birds and only 5 tags confused.gif

Oh well I guess the DNR know what they'er doing.

No tag for me frown.gif unless someone in the southeast part of the state will help me out HINT, HINT smile.gif.

Have a Safe Labor Day weekend

Thanks for letting us know!

It got past me once again this year. I knew I had to get there to do it, and it just didn't happen. Will have to focus more on deer hunting is all I guess.

As for low fall tag numbers, it's my supposition that they're reluctant to hand out too many fall tags in areas that are just getting underway in terms of turkey numbers. Reason being, I think, has to do with being allowed to take a hen in the fall. High hen mortality, esp. going into winter and all of its unknowns isn't a good way to expand the wild turkey population, esp. on the fringes of its current range.

My 12 yr old daughter and her friend applied as a group and drew tags so it should be a good time! Good luck to those going.

I'll be doing a fall turkey seminar at the Gander in Lakeville just before the season starts. Stay tuned for details.....

My son and I each drew a fall tag again.

I just picked up some new arrows and broadheads at the Gander in Lakeville yesterday. Hopefully my schedule will allow us to make your seminar.

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan

      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.

      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!

      Nice pics.  Can't wait to get out this weekend and give it a try.
