5 posts in this topic

I am a very out door person missing the Fall in Minnesota. I love to fish and hunt and have no idea where t ostart to look. I run a 17' Mirocraft with a 125 on it and love to walleye fish. Love to pheasant hunt but have not got out yet. Looking more for next year any one have any pinters. how far of a drive is it to go walleye fishing in this state. I am in the NW corner of Omaha. Any pointers would be great!

Summit Lake in/near Tekamah has a fishable population. During the winter months, that big brown river, the same one that runs through Ft Peck, Oahe, etc. has fishable numbers of saugers and walleyes.

Sherman, Calamus, Merritt, etc are all top notch producers at any given time of year, plus Harlan, Big Mac (other side of the wide state), and Branched Oak are all producers.

Lots of people from the big O drive up to SD to catch their walleyes just like Minnesotan's do. Lewis and Clark is relatively close and Francis Case isn't a day trip, but would be worth your while in the spring/summer for a couple of days at a time. There are some good lakes in Iowa via I-80 as well.

If you are into ice fishing, Omaha has a lot of city lakes that produce good numbers of pannies and trout. The Nebraska Game and Parks has their gov't HSOforum that will provide you a guide of Nebraska waters. Check it out.

Just because you are in the husker state, don't get too down. The fishing isn't quite as good, but the crowds are "mighty" less, once you get down the road a bit.

Start at Kearney and split the state in half. Go west north or south of that line and you should be good. Growing up in Nebraska you would learn to love the Huskers and hunting and fishing. But heres the thing. East of the platte river they hsve fuccked up with small game management. The state has let every farmer tile there land which cuts out every waterway and hedgerow they have thus leaving less woods and grass waterways for the game to reproduce. Other than that let me know what you want to hunt and i will take you on a hunt a hunt you won't forget. Turkey in my area has become numero uno(one). Let me know. All the turkey i have killed the past ten years have had nothing less that a ten inch beard.

Merritt and Lewis and Clark are excellent bets for quality walleyes.

I too am a former MN guy who ended up in NE. At first I was a bit apprehensive about the opportunities, but after getting out for some researching, there are ample places to hunt and fish. For now I would suggest getting after the pheasants or ducks. Go to the local Game and Parks office and get a CRP book. They make a county by county book which lists all of the public ground in the state. There are tons of opportunity on the eastern side of the state (and throughout the state) for pheasants on public ground. Get out there and walk, there is more ground to hunt than you could cover in 5 years here. If you have a dog and want to ever get out, let me know, I am in the Kearney area. I am no expert in the state by any means, but as a newbie on my first season here, I am already getting into plenty of critters. Good luck.

    • Don't worry Chuck......PF has your back.
    • It's just sooooooooo easy.
    • Speaking of Russia:   A timeline of recent events. 11/28/16 - " Trump’s campaign took him up on it in March. From those meetings, Nunes grew close with retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump hand who has just been nominated to be the president-elect’s national security adviser. 2/13/- 1) Flynn gets recorded by Intel agencies, we know he discussed sanctions and 2) it was part of a "Peace Plan" involving Cohen, Sater and a Ukranian named Alex Oronov 3) who is now dead. 2/16 - Flynn faces no FBI charges Source 3/20 - Comey announces FBI investigation into members of Trump campaign. Repubs, including Nunes, spend a great deal of it concerned about Unmasking of Flynn from incidental collection. Source 3/22 - Nunes spends his week freaking out about possible incidental collection he's been told about from an unknown source, immediately warns Trump. Source Now to go back to January, Who happened to be at the Breakfast with Flynn in January involving Turkey? Nunes. Where did it happen? Trump hotel in Washington. Source  3/22 - The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday requested documents related to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn from the White House, FBI, Department of Defense and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Source 3/22 - Schiff now claims there's "More than circumstantial evidence of Collusion (Unrelated to Nunes new info) Source 3/23 - CNN story drops that "The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings ." Source 3/24 - Nunes cancels 2nd open hearing with Intel Committee, seemingly for no reason. Source - Albeit today we learned Sally Yates was going to talk about Michael Flynn at this hearing. 3/24 - Manafort, Stone and Page all more or less simultaneously agree to speak with Intel Committee. Source 3/24 - National Inquirer (owned by Trump's friend) very oddly throws Flynn under the bus. Source 3/25 - Claim that Flynn may have cut a deal Source It seems Flynn may be spilling the beans here, which would not bode well for Trump.   Also I didn't even get to today's news about Kushner and Russia.     What do we know VEB? It ran a spy ring in New York City. Here's another fun coincidence:     Prosecuted by our now removed district attorney.
