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!

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret
