It’s the beauty of living in the upper midwest, 4 seasons! I’m happy to say the ice gear is on the shelf and I won’t be checking the rearview mirror for another 6 months. It’s always fun to see spring excitement in the air, boats in tow, docks being installed for another summer, and spring mornings filled with the tell tale gobble of Mr. Tom!
Fishing opener is right around the corner, and I’ve put together 5 Lakes for a Minnesota Opener, detailing why you should think about heading to one of them for opening weekend!
IDO’s Steve Root, better known on the forums as “RootSki”, explains why you don’t need to be a multi-millionaire or have access to a bonefish camp down in the Seychelles Islands. I’ll agree with him wholeheartedly on this topic! It’s not write when you google “fly fishing” and one of the first links is to a Forbes article! Not cool man!

Keeping with the trend, photographer and trout aficionado Len Harris has a photo essay with some amazing shots from the rivers and streams of the Driftless area!
I’m surprised Joel even got an article in for this month. He’s probably down in his little basement lab concocting his next turkey hunting plan! Like I’ve said before if you want to learn to consistently kill turkeys, be sure to read through not only the article but the numerous forum posts he provides in the Turkey Forum. As Joel has said numerous times, Journaling for Spring Turkeys is one of his best learning tools which always keeps him sharp for the season!
I have been fortunate enough to already hit the field chasing after turkeys and it was the most rewarding hunt I’ve ever experienced, and I didn’t even draw my bow. For all you son’s and daughter’s out there who were lucky enough to be introduced to the great outdoors by your dad, when is it time to Take a Dad Hunting?
In-Depth Outdoors TV is in full open water mode, and has been hitting the spring bites hard! We took a step outside of our normal species recently, and was it ever an experience. The Trinity River down in Southeast Texas held some of the meanest looking fish I have ever seen! Watch Jakob Hals and James Holst tangle with hundreds of pounds of armored scales, and teeth as they hunt down the Gator Gar!
