Starting to get Ideas for the Hard Season!!!

Recommended Posts

Ya i know its not even September, but I think its only right for use to start talking about where we are going to do the 2 get togethers this year. I know we had a post that we were talking about it. Lets get some ideas, and ill add the lakes into a poll in the middle of October, and we will go from there.

So start shooting out lakes, and we can get them on a roll. Please copy them over, so we can keep it simple for people to see what we have suggested for lakes. Copy the lakes and numbers please.

I need to do some research.

A clear lake,

Stocked with walleye in the last 3 years,

Near the metro,

With good structure,

Hummm... off to the lake finder

Or we could just pin BNS down and I could sit on him until he gives up one of his "secret" lakes.grin

P.S. This year it is steak on the menu... not sushi like last year.lol

For the out of the metro choice:

I vote for Lake Winnibigoshish in Dec or very early Jan.

There are many resorts there that rent dark houses

Get a bunch together of people together and rent a cabin.

People could have their choice of renting a heated predrilled darkhouse or bring your own darkhouse.

Bunk up with others or rent your own cabin.

Do a google search for Lake Winnibigoshish darkhouse rental and there are quite a few that come up.

I like merkmans Idea, make a weekend of it. have a big BBQ on the lake or at the resort. I was thinking of BBQing a hind quarter of venison any ways.

I also am going to take up the offer the DNR posted at maple lake this winter.

i agree, staying there should be first option. id have a tough decision to make, we have a cabin 40 minutes away from highbanks and we go threw there when we fish winnie during hard water season.

    • Game 6 of Caps and Lightning was fun to watch, even though the lightning got shut out.  Ove was a beast, really fun to watch him play like that.   Good for the Caps, I think they can nuetralize the speed of Vegas, they have some hard hitters on the team.  Hopefully Ove can kiss the cup.
    • Vegas vs Caps, we all saw that coming. 
    • Well this has been a tough season so far with this odd weather. Late winter jump into 80+ degrees.  It will be interesting to see what these next 4-5 days of 80's to 90's do to them?   Did find a few Morel's and some nice small tender Pheasant  backs last time out.
    • For the 2018 Minnesota Fishing Opener we went up to Lake Vermilion in search of Walleyes. The morning started off slow for us so we changed up the tactics and it resulted in a livewell full of walleyes, a few Slot fish and a new Personal Best!     
    • Ok, if you don't post back in a few days we know!
    • I shoot 2 steel all season long in an improved cyclinder choke . Satisfied with that. Have a buddy who shoots Black Cloud 3's with impressive results.
    • I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.  
    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
