I was wondering if the shooting times are from 9-4 till next friday, or if it is only today which is the 30Th. I looked in the regulations and I was kind of confused. Any info would be appreciated Thanks.

Not only to give the ducks a fighting chance but to try too keep the duck hunters from shooting each other early in the morning...just a joke....If they opened it at sunrise on opening day the number of ducks that would be killed would be alot....and the people down south would get pissed...

I've tried it, hunting can be good, but is it seems like the ducks flood in AFTER legal shooting light. Awfully tempting...

I hunt in the evening quite a bit every year. If you are in the right spot it can be just almost as good as a morning hunt. I prefer it sometimes because your not fumbling around in the dark, tripping over everything on the walk out, setting up decoys wondering how they will actually look once the sun comes up, ect.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
