ReefRaker and I hit the mother load down south last year while turkey hunting. We picked 3 coolers full. I haven't looked to hard around here but look for an elm with the bark falling off.

I have never found them up here. That is not to say that they are not around. I also cashed in on them last year while turkey hunting. I justified not getting a turkey on finding a ton of morrels. I have found them under elms, and dead cotton woods. Good luck!

Mushrooms you can eat and not get sick or die. More like HEAVEN for us who love frying them up with sauteed pork chops, cooking wine, and a touch of freshly ground pepper.

Those are as pretty as a 10 pound walleye! Found a few in Quetico on a Memorial Weekend trip once about three years ago. We keep checking the same spot, none since. Only about 15 or so of them, but they were great w/sauteed walleyes.

What are you goofy? Nothin' better than a 10lb Walleye, unless of coarse it's an 11lber. grin.gif Junky....

That's a different kind of shroom! Not Morrels.

Twisted minds produce twisted thoughts. Your twist on Morrels is most twisted twister.

When I first moved to Duluth in mid June last year, this tasty morrel was right in the backyard! What luck, I thought. If anyone can date a morell from past the Summer Solstice let me know, I'm not to very familiar with their season...

Later- CLoma

Loma,

I am no shroom expert by any means, but here are what a few people go by for when to start looking. One is 3 nights when the temp doesn't get below 50. (and a rain helps too) Others say when the lalics (sp) start to bud. Others say when the aspen buds are the size of squirrels ears. Yet others say that when they see white flowers growing on the trees in the ditch it's time to go shrooming. I am sure they grow later in the spring also, but it's harder to see them with all the ground cover. I usually stick to the 1st one with the 3 nights above 50, and some rain. But those are some of the guidelines I have heard from the long-time shroomers. I hope in some small way this helps. grin.gif

Good Luck!

MMMMMMMMorels. Wow, those are the big uns from S MN. I found some like that at Fort Snelling State Park under dead elms a long time ago. I like dipping them in cracker crumbs and egg and frying in butter.

Moist aspen woods are a good place to find them in N MN. Last year I picked for 3 weeks because of the cool weather, which is a long time to be able to pick. They can come up over nite when conditions are right. I would wait for the next warm snap (I SURE HOPE THATS SOON!!!) and start checking. My experience has been within a week or so of the fishing opener is the time to get them up north.

This sounds weird but new cutovers are a good place too especially along landings where theres been a lot of disturbance. But look for moist to wet aspen woods, even 10-20 year old aspen.

good luck and enjoy them , they're grrreaaat!

I've never found any around the Duluth area. Last spring I found a who mess of them north of Orr. I think its a little early yet, especially since the last week or so has been cool.

Stir fried in butter and leeks on top of a big fat porterhouse........I just drooled on myself....

Well, if you guys do get into a batch of them I know a "guy" that will take them off off your hands for service in a restaurant. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifObviously not for free.

I am SO full right now. I just got back from the Kirksville MO area and we hit it big again this year. I just had a huge batch for brkfst. I always take my cleanings and through them in the back yard in the shade and in a few weeks I get about a half a dozen if they don't get hit with the lawn mower. I can get a turkey at the store any time, but there is nothing like a fresh Morel. The first three days were real slow because of the cold, but the last day, the sun came out and they were popping out all over in just a matter of a few hours. We found one mess that had about 50 four inchers in it.

If anyone knows were they might be around here and would like to go hunting for them within a 100 miles of here, let me know. I will take that trip before any other and would be more than happy to do the driving. grin.gifgrin.gif

While we were hunting, we hit a little lake and got a batch of crappies. That was to die for. This morning, I just had them by themselves as a big snack and fried some more for lunch in butter.

I have chicken on the grill right now to go with the next batch. i am on the way to having enough for a while, so I am going to start drying about 5 gallons of the tonight for soups and gravy,s. Got to love em.

You guys are a little too fond of those mushrooms. They must do alot more than just taste good, I think they are magic mushrooms, if you know what I mean. And if they are as good as you guys claim, where the hell can I get some?

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.
    • SkunkedAgain
      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.

      On the south end...  A great 2022 MN Fishing Opener for most anglers.  The walleyes and saugers are hungry and the bite is on!  Good numbers of fish caught. Lots of big fish amongst the eaters.  Most anglers were vertically jigging in 6' - 20'.  Anchor up and jig over the side of the boat.  A nice mix of sizes.   The water is a bit dirty on the east portion of the south shore due to runoff from the rivers.  A bright jig with a minnow is the most productive. Reports were also good from the west portion of the south shore.  A bit cleaner water and equally good bite.  Lots of big fish mixed in with eaters.  Some anglers fishing on structure or on the edge of structure where available. On the Rainy River...   A lot of walleyes in the river as predicted, but the current is ripping and the water is a bit dirty.  Those who found slack water often found fish.  The norm was 6' - 15' with a bright jig and minnow.   Typical spots in the main channel were tough to fish due to high current.  The fast moving water helped to congregate fish.  Once you found them, there were normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig bite up at the Angle for the opener.  Most fish were caught in 6' - 20' adjacent shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  With cold water, a subtle presentation.  Both fatheads and frozen shiners worked well. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      Greetings all! Our group (two boats/five guys) is looking at fishing/camping trip based at Hinsdale Island Campground or Wake 'Em Up Bay Campground in about 3 weeks.  Can anyone advise about Hinsdale, especially the shoreline for landing boats? (Is it sandy or rocky? Mostly protected?) We're also wondering how busy both campgrounds are? We've stayed at Wake Em Up,  but that was 6-8 years ago and it was mostly empty...just the host and 2-3 others. Nowadays, do either or both fill up on June weekends? (We'd probably arrive on a Saturday, stay most of the week.) Of course, we also welcome suggestions for walleye techniques, depths, etc. We tend to fish smallies during the day and chase eyes in the evening.  Thanks in advance for your help!
