If your talking about spring lake that is backwaters of the Mississippi off of highway 55 yes you can but that lake gets so much pressure it is tuff and you have to be out there really early to hold your spot. And your still not garinted to not have some yahoo come in and set up right on top of you. Trust me its happened to me quite a few times. But if you think it would be worth a shot then go for it.

If I recall, there are some areas there that are in inver grove that are not legally huntable. I don't know for sure, but be sure to check first to save some hassle.

If you are talking about the Spring Lake is a Backwater of the Mississippi, it can be hunted, gets tons of pressure.

Lots of vandalism has occurred to trucks and trailers at the landing in recent years.

IMO it is not worth hunting, too many idiots.

If this is the Spring Lake west and south of Proir Lake I think that it is in Scott county and I used to hunt it in the early 80's late season on the west side of the lake but its been years since I've even seen that lake but would think that it would still be leagle to but I may be wrong.

Backwater area gets a lot of pressure but during the week late in the year it can be great. My duck hunting has dropped off the last couple years but hitting a cold front late in the year during the week is very much worth the early rise and idiots out there. I have never had any problems but I have never been down that way on a weekend. I can only imagine.

All I can say is late season mallards really get my blood going

    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY

    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.

    •   Yeah, you better stick with Bob's girl above old timer. She wouldn't swallow what your selling either!
