A shorter throwback to a few years ago on #Turkeythursday ...

I have turkey hunting addiction as bad or worse than muskie addiction and the time is drawing near so turkeys on my mind ...

Ran across this pic of Tex's bird he got a few years back (I'm holding but he shot). Of all the turkeys I've seen and called in up north here - it's still the only one I've seen with white tips on tailfeathers like a Merriam or cross ... see a lot when hunt NE ... but all birds up here normally have brown tails like standard eastern here - like my buddy Steve Salisbury's bird in pic.

Curious to ask if anyone has seen or sees any number of white-tipped birds up north here?

Tex is a Beast.💪

And the shrooms too. Turkey and morels.❤️❤️

Man they sure are coming back. Live in the northern metro of the twin cities and they are everywhere.

Great birds I am also hooked on it! Thinking of another state with good public land opportunities!

Do you think it’s a Merriam that ended up over here somehow? Like accidentally shipped with a bunch of other Easterns during a restocking program or something like that?

Got one a few years ago with white tips in Eastern Wisconsin

😎 nice bird and memories!!

Leave it to Tex. Always making his son proud and in awe.

Well no recent wimps I was super proud of so thought to share this bonus brown that surprised me.

(BTW if you have a wimp to be proud of please share.)

Also revealing the hot color in the Livingston Pro Ripper Magnum I caught most of the fish (walleye) on, including this trout.

No paint- reveals the battery and speaker for the EBS system.

Awesome looking brown!

No wimps in eastern Illinois just fat pre spawn creek smallies! My favorite! Also I’m a sucker for lipless cranks going to have to snag a few of this when they come out.

Love chasing those browns! Awesome fish!

Magnum brown🎣

Nicey!

🗣 I need one of those baits‼️👍🏻🆒

No wimps. Just some nice crappies

I’m a big believer in the EBS system, sound and vibration are key senses for predators. Scent is another completely overlooked and under utilized trigger for catching more, and bigger fish. Big fish get big by not hitting every lure they see....

Nice fish Pete, about time Kyle Sorensen comes thru for you!😂

Wow nice

That brown is flawless looking! 👍

#datsaprettyfish

Woah!😲

Smallest brown I got

I'd say it's officially ice out here in northern WI. This was yesterday afternoon... betting there are few, if any ice cubes left floating around.

One of the earliest I've seen in some time!

Anyone still have ice?

I see ice went out at Pine Sunset Lodge in Ontariohttps://www.facebook.com too.

It's time to try out the New Boat. Let us know how you like the CAMPION. You and Ester have a great day!!😎

Probably about 12 to 15 years ago we put our pier in on Easter Sunday , Iron County Wisconsin.

Love Big Round!!!! Thanks for the update

Early or not, it’s welcome!

Pete,I have a Hayward question,going up to Moose lake 2nd week of June.Never fished it,have you ever been on it?

Beautiful sight

Damn round went out before the chip. I would think the bigger lakes would be last

Parts of Lake Simcoe in Ontario are still iced over, but this week should get rid of it.

North Dakota is getting a good start on ice out also the big lakes

Can't wait to get up to Sawyer County "the land of sky blue waters" the first bar i was ever in had a Hamms sign i will always remember lol...Hartels Resort

You can try out your new boat Pete!

Three Lakes chain went out a week ago

Vilas county has some ice yet as of today

Can’t wait to get on the Chippewa Flowage in July!

Lost land lake ??

Early ice out

Ice pulled off so fast this year. Crazy. Just put the pier in yesterday here in minocqua

Time for fishing !!!!!

Looks like you took the wind with you brother!!!

Lake Minocqua open

That sir is called cocktail season when cubes are still bobbin on the lake.....

Yes but did you get your new boat yet?

We still have about 4 feet of ice in interior Alaska. Will be a very late break up season this year

Muskys are spawning down here in SE Wi!!!

My wife and I travel to Texas in the winter from Marinette, WI every year. We didn’t go this year due to the Covid. Kinda glad now!😊

Old Man Winter has your number,,,, Hes gona flex them guns !!!

Winter followed you to Texas and got lost.

Kill it again....for next year in advance....come on,what good R ya !

Pete while you were down in Texas old man winter died of covid at least that was the way it was reported to the CDC.

I continue to look forward to any, all, every little video that you put out. Fishing related, chicken related, family related, but the killing of winter spots always seem to just put the biggest smile on this old mans face. Once again Thank You Pete 👍😆👌

Agreed, it was that Texas trip

I’m not b putting the SNOWBLOWER AWAY NOW!!😂

What ever the reason pete we, ll take it?!

Hmmm....hopefully no more snow but remember snow totals from April 13-16, 2018?? 30" in shawano.....20" Eagle River...

Where did you get that hat? I love it! I want to get one too!

Thanks for going to Texas Pete! Next year go a little earlier please!😂😂

More Elvis the Chicken🤣🤣

Here in Texas winter is over

It was 78 in Hayward today, so ... no need to mention that “W” word anymore this season. It’s killed.

Now what can you do for that border thing?

Well said

Good enough!!!!

Pete Maina, Professional Angler and Muskie Expert been going Up North since I was born, father retired moved up there and said, there's only 1 month its never snowed.....August. 🤣

Thanks for killing winter Pete!

Low to mid 90s here in San Antonio, little league started so it’s put a big cramp on fishing for me until June. This picture was taken in Choke Canyon, the cold didn’t hurt to many gators.

Chased some walleyes around for a couple days with @sorensen_fishin

Great to be out on open water. Considering a pretty nasty cold front the bite was good even though generally finicky. Got em on a pretty wide variety of presentations, including jigs, but Livingston Pro Ripper Magnum protos got the most and of course the jerkmaster had to get wet.

Ice in the guides all day so the Ice Armor was feeling good. (Thankfully not needed outside today.)

Lee Boudreau

Pete... I had some friends fishing Green Bay and man they boated some big walleye. Several over 30".

Glenn Fisher

Nice tried to catch some walleyes but hooked into and upper 40’s musky on a 1.5 inch hyper rattle. Only got it next to the boat and the hook let go

Those are some beauties

Those are beasts.

Let them big old females go, more for our kids !

Nice fish!!😁👍👍
