The youth hunt is a great experience. I take my son back to ND so he can hunt with his grandfather. I've had many great hunts but the two best hunts I've experienced were the past two youth hunts. He ended up with his limit of ducks 2 yrs. ago and last year he brought home 5 ducks and 2 honkers. Pretty good for an 11 yr. old with a youth model 20. Another benefit of the youth hunt- I've been able to get access to land that's normally not hunted. The farmers seem very willing to let a young kid, his Dad and grandfather go out on a hunt. Never realized I could have so much enjoyment on a hunt when I don't even carry a gun. I'm anxious to experience the youth pheasant hunt in ND this year as well.

I've got two of my kids legal for the first time this year and I called the MN DNR a couple of weeks ago since nothing was out on their website. According to the help line person I spoke to, it is tentatively scheduled for September 24th which would only be one week prior to opener. It won't be finalized until they actually print and release the waterfowl regulations supplement.

Smack dab in the middle of fall soccer season for my kids, but missing one game won't be the end of the world as compared to their first chance to really go hunting!

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?

      We were up this past weekend.  We got cold but did ok.  We caught around 40 walleye.  Most were 12-14" a handful of 14-16".  Good activity and a full fry pan, but no bigger fish.  Frazer and Smarts bays.  All Jig and minnow.  Mornings we found them at 24-26 FOW.  Evenings in 7-10 FOW.  Water temp was 50-52.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.
