They sure are!!! I'll be hunting zone 19 again from May 7-11. Last year was my first year, so I'm even more pumped this year. I made a few landowner contacts down there last spring, so that will broaden my horizon's a bit more!

bmc, same zone, same time as you. We also got a couple new spots that got me really excited about this year. Two of us shot a 23 & 25 pounder last spring. grin.gif

DonBo,

We should try to meet up during our season for some dinner or something. I hunt near Baldwin and stay at my brother's in Hudson. Sounds like you guys got some awesome birds last year!!!

I've heard that applying for non-res tags in May gives you an excellent chance on drawing a tag, have you had luck trying to draw a tag for an earlier season? I see paintbrush drew for the season before us and he's from Brainerd.

bmc, I've drawn every year in 19. We usually apply for the season before this, the Wis. fishing opener. However, the last couple years the activity has been slower earlier in the week and has picked up later. Can't explain it, just the way it is.

We hunt south of Spring Valley, near Elmwood. We camp at the Nugget Lake campground East of Ellsworth, SW of Elmwood.

I hope you're not hunting too near Baldwin as that is not in zone 19. blush.gif

Stay in touch if you want to hook up. Email address in my profile.

I'm actually south of I-94, which is the boundary line. But thanks for the heads up! Do you guys usually shotgun hunt or bow hunt? I'd be interested in talking strategy w/ you as it sounds like you have hunted this zone/time frame in the past.

Thanks,

Brian

I pulled season E (May 14th-18th). I like those dates if the spring weather plays itself out properly. Plus, I am clear for MN fishing opener for once.

      Nice walleye Reid! How big? Cliff

      I respect your conservation minded approach but trying to TELL people not to keep those fish will just get you more of the same response you already got.  I also agree <15 inch bass are better keepers.  I keep a few myself each year and rarely keep anything over 16, preferring 12’s for the table. I’ve been a bass tournament angler in the past and have also promoted staunch C&R, much like the modern muskie culture, but have grown wiser with age.  I still target bass quite a bit just because they’re fun! On a 300 acre lake I agree a small group of anglers can and will have an impact with constant return visits to harvest large fish but the only two things you can do about it is, 1) As mentioned, lobby the DNR for protected slots, and 2) When people are happy to show you their catch, congratulate them and mention you like bass too but find the smaller sized fish much better table fare.  And maybe that you also fell releasing the mature fish keeps reproduction up to sustain a quality fishery.  And be nice about it.  Once you turn people off they’ll stop hearing you. That’s about all I have for ya.  Good luck.

      Bite was OK for us this weekend. Marked tons of fish but they only seemed to bite in small feeding windows due to abundance of mayfly larva down there. When they decided bite, they were inhaling our leeches though.  Rocks next to mud was best for us. Highlight of the weekend was walleye pictured below.

      I like the idea!!!👍

      Just a heads up to all.  Someone has been cutting off the Catalytic convertors on vehicles at the landings on Island Lake Reservoir.  Trucks are targeted do to the clearance and ease to get under.  They hit several vehicles on Friday morning and were trying to sell the parts at a local scrap yard by 11:30am the same day.  It cost me over $500.00 to replace this weekend.  Police where notified.

      Thank you for your opinion. I respectfully disagree with just standing by, as multiple 3lbs+ bass were shown to me in a livewell this morning coming off of a 300acre lake. Again i completely realize this is a legal choice to make, and at times selective harvest is necessary for maintaining a healthy ecosystem. Where I live in Minnesota, bass are plentiful, but fish of that calliber and bigger are not growing on trees and it takes multiple years to get to maturity. As aforementioned, i am serious about the sport aspect of bass fishing and hate to think of the idea of 10+ yr old fish being taken from lakes of such small size especially. I have personally seen the possibilities catch and release offers as myself and a buddy have caught the same 4lb fish with distinct bird/pike bite marks on 3 separate occasions just this spring/summer alone.  Again i do not mean to shame these people for being proud of catching quality fish, just want to find the best way to try to shape their thinking to take a more conservationally responsible approach to fish harvest choices. I appreciate any help i can get

      They split FM and HSO.   Turned out to be a bad decision in my opinion.   
    • delcecchi
      If I were you I would mind my own business.  Harvesting bass instead of just annoying them is perfectly legal.    You could always write a strongly worded letter to the DNR and your state legislators suggesting special regulations on those lakes that concern you or even a statewide change if you really feel that it is a problem.

      I have 2 large anchors so movement is not a problem as long as the wind is not too heavy which causes a little rocking.    The screen was as detailed as it is in winter.    As far as fishing went.    I was marking a lot of fish but most were cats.   I only marked a couple of possible walleyes but no takers, but in fairness I was only testing and was not in my best spot and was only there about 20 minutes.    Have to try again later in some of my winter hot spots.   Don

      That’s what I’m wondering too!  Mostly how well you can actually keep your bait in your ducer cone.  For a pontoon fisher I can see some pretty cool positives for the setup!
