Walleye #1

This might seem like a stupid question, but I have just moved to the state. In MN do you still have to fill out an application to get your deer tags, or can you just go and buy them like you can in Iowa?? If applications are the way can anyone tell me when the bow and muzzleloader deadlines are?

Thanks for your help

you just go and ask for one at a sporting goods store or a wal-mart. depending on how long you have lived in mn you may have to get an out of state lic. you can get tags all throught the season and before. if you get one during the season you have to wait for 2 days i think before you can use it. i hunt with bow myself, the opener is Sept. 14 and goes to dec. 31st. as for muzzloader: i think it starts on nov.30 and end on the 15th of dec. to know for sure just go to a wal-mart or sporting goods store and pick up a rule and regs book for hunting. hope this helps.
i don't believe there is an application, there isn't for residents anyway. you can get tags throughout the season and before it i didn't mention earlier.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
