Early Bird Fishing: DNR Stocking Walleye on Area Lakes

Apr 30, 2021

Early Bird Fishing Guide Jeff Sundin talks with John Bauer on the Thursday Morning Show.  They discuss how and where the DNR chooses to stalk the area lakes with walleyes.  Jeff says that with the surveys, test netting and lake checking it is an uphill battle to stay on top of it all.

Jeff gives us tips on where to fish the opener this season.  Being ahead of schedule with the weather and early ice out gives people a wider choice of lakes to fish.  He predicts Winnie and Pokegama will be good lakes for the opener.  They talk about the special regulation changes in place for each lake.  Jeff suggests people pay attention to the yellow signs posted at lakes or go to the DNR Recreation Compass on line and it will call up an interactive map to check the lake you are on for fishing reports and special regulations.
