really dumb food plot Qs

7 posts in this topic

Can I just toss some product down and it will grow like you do with your grass?

There is some native "Weeds" growing in this open area and I am wondering if it is too late to toss something down?

Any product suggestions?

In dealing with BLB, I think you should be able to use a late season variety.

You gotta do some kinda prep work. There are some kinds on the market that call it a "throw and grow" mix. Sure, some might grow, but I just cant see it being enough to do much good.

Get some dirt worked up, and then you can have a fighting chance at getting a plot to grow.

Absolutely there is time to plant. You can plant up to Sept 1 depending where you are thinking of doing this. A tad earlier than Labor Day would be better overall. I've still got a handful of bags of seed left if anyone is interested.

I can't really get any big plows in there -- I suppose a rake? Any other ideas?

The other spot has a lot of BIG BIG rocks -- any ideas there? We could get into that spot but it would take a lot of time to move the big rocks.

I agree with BLB, you need to do some ground workup to get the seed to grow, either with a 4 wheeler or a garden tiller or by hand raking. Consider hitting it with Round-up 7-10 days before you work it up and plant. Better yet, use round up, work up in 10 days, let it sit for about 3 weeks so that most of the weed seeds germinate, work up again and plant. Shoot for a mid Aug planting. Does this spot get any sun? Planting totally in shady spots isn't the greatest, plants need sun to grow.

Both spots get sun.

Thanks BJ!

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
