coyote calling....what works right now?

6 posts in this topic

got home for the weekend last night and went on a little scouting drive, mainly to see where the geese were and if there were any deer moving; ended up glassing a large coyote on the perimiter of a 40 acre crp valley we have. all i could do was watch him, meandering around in some soybeans about 175-200 yards off the road. all i had was my ruger .22 so taking a poke at him was out of the question. ive never been calling outside of the winter months and wonder what types of calls would work right now on yotes. im interrested in trying to call 'em in with 'yote vocalizations instead of prey distress sounds. any help would be appreciated!

one of my buddies that I hunt with has had success in the summer time using pup distress sounds, Ki-yi's etc. The parents are still training those pups and if they are in the area, they will come in to help their pup.

Another good call this time of year is a deer fawn distress call. I have used a piece of cardboard cut into a deer silhouette with a couple rows of white spots as a decoy.

I would start with a few howls and then work in to the pup distress, kinda like setting the table that someone is in there area and now beating on the kids. That should get the old ones in. Don't over do it though, take more time between sets and wait alittle longer, as they might now just run you over.

I would say pup distress, or even pup howls.

Fawn Distress are great right now! Be careful in bear country though!

Pup distresses are decent too though as long as you're in their living room.

      I have OR 18s on the front and OR16s on the back and it works just fine. I have never had a board get off which is what you want on Superior. I use a mix of Offshore and Opti Tackle boards.

      Hi guys!  I used to be on this site long ago (participating mostly in the Mille Lacs forum), and the system wouldn't recognize my email.  So I created a new user name.   I'm planning to spend May and June in Ely.  My project is to autochart and create maps of a few small lakes I like off the Echo Trail, which I'll do via my Helix I have mounted on my bright orange fishing kayak.   I don't need any advice, as I pretty much know the area and what works to catch fish.  I'm just looking to possibly connect with other Ely anglers while I'm up there.  I'm tentatively planning on starting next week, assuming the "wintery mix" and wind in the forecast abates.  I'll be paddling around a bunch of different small lakes, going back and forth and back and forth, listening to either WELY or WEVE on my radio.  So if you see me, stop by and say hey.

      First off, welcome to the site. The Red River page gets kind of quiet but if you look back at previous posts there's a lot of good info. I've never fished much for cats but when I have I have always used cut up goldeye. I've also heard frogs are good but I have no first hand experience with that.    1- I feel that the fishery in Fargo is excellent and overlooked by a lot of people. The biggest eyes that I've caught have been on the river.  2,3- I normally use a chartreuse twister tail on the river with a jig head. The main reason for the color choice is because that is what I have an abundance of. I've caught them on white and yellow also. I don't use live bait at all unless the kids are along. They're not really able to do much pitch and retrieve yet and the minnows give them a little better chance I feel.  4- the only thing I've used is cut bait so I'd recommend finding some gold eyes or some suckers and chunk them up for bait.  5- last time I looked the ND NR license was something like $35.    My biggest tip for the river and pitching jigs would be that if you aren't getting snagged once in a while your jig is too light. Hung up too often and you are too heavy. I'm normally in the 1/8-1/4 ounce range. I have also caught a bunch of fish pitching cranks. I wasn't a believer until I watched Ed Carlson fish next to me and reel in fish while I kept on pitching my jig and not getting anything. Try something that's got a nice wide wobble. And if you are going to toss anything into the river be sure to remember that anything thats tied onto that line may not come back. I have donated lots of tackle to the old river gods over the years but I have also been rewarded with a lot of fish and some real dandies. These river fish have a lot of fight in them.     Remember that if you're keeping any walleyes or sauger on the red is that the limit is less than the MN and ND bag limit. I have seen more than one person ticketed at the north dam with their stringer of 4 eyes.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then the eyes moved in and I decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.
