Planning on planting my clover and one annual blend this weekend myself. From what I have gathered and plan on doing myself your best off seeding from mid April through early june or else then waiting till fall. All though there are several things that can be planted mid summer or in fall. Do some research and you will find LOTS of info I am still reading everything I can find about food plots.

As far as planting on public land I sure would say that would be a no no. I would not do it till I contacted the DNR. I would say that you should fire them an email to check. But like I said I can't believe that would be a legal thing to do.

If you are all ready to plant I'd keep tabs on the weather and wait for rain in the forecast. Then git er done.

Might rain this weekend so I am hoping I can get everything in before I see it. I am sure though that it will rain before I am done though with the luck I have.

No reason to rush fellas! As long as you have annuals in by about mid May, you will be just fine! Good luck all!

Yep I know but it is this weekend or else wait till Memorial weekend. Going out of the state to work for a few weeks. Got to get it down when I have time. I do plan on getting some turnips or something like that and planting them at the end of may or maybe June. Thanks for the tips jlm you have been extremly helpful through out this process.

Good luck with your planting and your out of state work! Post some pics when it all grows up, we would all like to see. Plots are very addicting. Thats not a bad thing though!

Very helpful question and responses. I was planning on going up to the 'ol hunting grounds to plant and to tear down an old deer stand that was in the way this weekend, but something came up. I will try to make up there next weekend to get it done.

Well the planting when pretty good for the most part. I ran out of time so some stuff will have to wait till Memorial weekend for seeding. I got most of the ground broke up that I wanted to. Not all of it so I might do some more in the fall and toss some oat or rye in. The seeding was going good till the gearbox in the broadcast spreader got screwed up so I will have to get a different one and finish up. The ground broke up nicely though I think everything should be good. Turned out to take more time than I though but I think it will be worth it in the long run.

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      Where are the opener fish pictures?

      All of us who couldn't be there for opener would love to hear how the fishing was....😉

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
