Got this Jake this Morning as a result of a spot and stalk effort between my wife and I. They weren't responding to calls, so we had to resort to other options!

Curiosity killed the cat, and this gobbler. He and four other strutters where pushing about twenty hens around a field but he couldn't help himself to try and gather up one more.

He ended up being 25.5 lbs with a 10" beard and only one good spur as the other was busted off.

I have been very fortunate to have a good friend in southern MN that is all about turkeys, he does 100% of the leg work from lining up land permission to pre season scouting and he is always dead on. I think it's a very fair trade as I do the leg work for bear season in the fall as we both have our regions and expertise. I have only taken two turkeys in my life and this years' bird was the small one. The first year I did everything wrong I could for several days and still ended up with a mongo bird. Now this year was it for me as no more calling instructions or help as I have been weaned off. Year three I’m on my own…guessing me without the help will change my success rate. laugh

My first bird

Nice work! I only had the mornings of this weekend and it was horrible for me. Seems the strong winds kept the birds in the valley. Big bummer, normally I listen to about a dozen birds at first light and down one shortly after. Just wasn't my year. Back to fishing!

MN Metro bird 6:30 this morning. 22 lbs., 10" beard. Sharp 3/4 - 7/8" spurs. I didn't have much time to invest in this hunt and with the weather moving in, I couldn't be happier to take this bird. A friend was doing some pretty professional filming. Hopefully he'll have a nice sequence on utube one of these days.

      Where did all these weeds come from? Makes fishing tough!

      Finally able to get out. Took my daughter and boyfriend bass fishing for a few hours. Caught 13 and had many tail boils. Neither had caught a bass before so loads of fun. Using poppers, shallow diver crawfish and vibrex spinners. All caught in 4 feet or less casting rocky shorelines. Nothing large with the biggest 2 1/2 lbs. After found a few walleyes hanging out along deep weed lines in 15-18 feet. One 19” and the other 26”. Walleyes are transitioning out to deep water. Also mayfly hatch happened last weekend. Water temp at 68-69 degrees.

      Ely is getting just as bad.

      Yea the flies are horrific currently up here. Yesterday was really windy so panfishing was tough, out for walleye today

      Back from a week.  Tough fishing for us.  Scratched together enough for a fish meal, but it was hard work.  Tried just about everything between Taylors Island and Fraser Bay.  Huge mayfly hatch in Niles Bay early during the week.  Hit a few northern and some smallmouth.. .  Covered a lot of miles, fished hard, and it just never turned on for us...  Oh well...  Till next time...

      6/2/21     Catching lots of walleyes and bonus smallies on Mille Lacs. On shallow to mid-depth rocks the first few weeks, now deep gravel or mud when it is calm/clear and mid-depth rocks when it is windy and cloudy. Caught several of the elusive slot fish during the open period, kept and ate a few. Catch and release now and remember closed walleye fishing and no live bait July 1-15. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      6/16/21     Catching bass, pike, sunfish, and crappies on west Metro area lakes. Starting to see a few muskies as well. Water temps in the low to upper 70s depending on the lake. Still catching fish in shallow to mid-depth depending on the lake. Good luck and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Congrats!  Bummer that the dead fish was the difference especially if it was healthy and swimming when you entered the bay!  What weight did you have pre deductions and what was your fish/weight breakdown?  Curious what people were catching... Did you fish the same spots on tourney day as you did in prefishing? and if you don't mind sharing did you fish crosslake or make it out to whitefish?  Sorry for the questions but I always am interested on the where, how, and how many in this tourney but never stick around for the long drawn out awards handout...

      Got back yesterday.  Found some really nice bass and a lot of them, both large and small mouth in the 15"-17" range.  Found a couple of walleye, 14" and 15".  Had a great time as usual and the weather was calm for much of the time we were there.  Had most success with slip bobber and leeches/crawlers.

      Headed up this afternoon for a solo weekend. Throwing for Musky but might pull some cranks or spinners and see what happens.
