Statewide Fishing Report

The fish are biting but everyone is deer hunting!  Some guests are hunting morning and evening and fishing during the day.  Walleyes are being caught in 20' of water in front of Pine Island jigging with a minnow.  This school of fish have been there for weeks.  Looks good for early ice.  Fishing has been good near NW Point, Morris Point, Zippel Bay, and near Twin Islands.  We believe those fish are still there to be had.

CO Weekly Report

CO Eric Benjamin (Warroad) worked both big and small game activity. The firearms deer season wrapped up this past weekend. Many hunters stated that they would give the muzzleloader season a go, believing that the change in weather over the past few days will provide more opportunities as the deer will be moving a little more frequently in the coming weeks.

Q: Wild turkeys seem to be fairly common in Minnesota. Has this always been the case?

A: Historically, wild turkeys are thought to have lived only in far southern Minnesota. By 1880, they had vanished from the state due to unregulated hunting and habitat loss. Attempts to re-establish wild turkeys in Minnesota date back to the 1920s, but these efforts weren’t successful until 1971, when turkeys trapped in Missouri were released into Houston County and showed strong survival.  Since then, the DNR has released wild turkeys throughout much of Minnesota to offer ample hunting opportunities. This, along with a favorable mix of agricultural and forest habitat, has allowed the species to expand well beyond its pre-settlement range. DNR research has shown why the ag/forest habitat mix is important for year-round survival of wild turkeys in Minnesota. Woodlands provide roosting sites and year-round cover, while forest edges and openings provide nesting and brood-rearing cover. Access to nearby farmland provides an important food source. Turkeys can survive Minnesota’s cold winters as long as they can find food, which is another reason why they have successfully expanded their range to the north. To learn more, visit the DNR’s wild turkey management page at www.mndnr.gov/turkey.
