Goose hunting Vermlion Area?

Recommended Posts

jparrucci

I'll be up at the cabin for the Labor Day weekend, is there any area lakes/rivers/fields that hold geese? I have seen a few occasionally during the regular duck season, but not any larger numbers and they usually appear to be migrants. Does anyone know of a lake or place in the area that could give me a decent shot at getting a honker? I also plan on doing lots of walleye fishing, hopefully it has picked up a little bit since the last trip a few weeks ago. This summer has been really slow after and outstanding spring for me. The perch have been insane in many spots, too the point where it has made it hard to catch walleye because you are busy trying to keep the perch off the line. Have the walleyes started to hit on minnows consistantly again? I'd like to switch from worms and leeches. Thanks!

There are very few geese up here right now. Hunting them during the early season is not worth the time around the Vermilion area. I have tried the early seasons in the past and your lucky to even hear a goose. It is better when they start heading south.

I would spend your time chasing the walleye's.

I've had too many sitting and making a mess on my dock on Pelican. Please come over and shoot them all.

SledNeck,

Sorry to disappoint you but my cabin is rather small and made of nylon.

I would like to learn your secrets and tips for Pelican. Based on your postings, you have done quite well.

How do you weight your wacky rigged Senkos when bass fishing?

I weight them with nothing. Thats the beauty of the wacky rig. Maybe next spring there will be a seat for you in the boat of many basses.

I dont think there are any secrets to fishing, just trial and error.

Goose hunting on Vermilion is a waste of time unless you don't care if you see anything. If you head a little West, you will see more birds. Just a little West of Cook will put you into some harvested grain fields that draw a few of the local goose population.

      I got this box from a friend this winter. Very well made and thought out design! Runs on a standard 12v flasher battery. Thought some of you may be interested in one! Check them out at www.facebook.com/Js12vpowerboxes/ Cliff

      nickeleye, Thanks for the report! Lookers but no biters seems to be the pattern the past couple of weeks. Common for this time of the winter on Vermilion! Cliff

      KABETOGAMA FISHING REPORT AND TRAIL CONDITIONS  2/20/2018 SNOW SNOW AND MORE SNOW!!!! So our forecasted 3-7 inches turned into about a foot of snow in the last 24 hours and its still coming down!  Needless to say the trails are being groomed and are in premier shape.  If you can get up here, the next couple weeks should be awesome riding around the entire area.  Always check with the Park Service and local snowmobile clubs for the latest conditions. On to fishing……the walleye bite has slowed some but with the warmer weather coming through the weekend we should rap up the walleye and pike season with a bang.  Right now, 30-34 ft over mud seems to be producing the best.  Casey form Reef Runner Rentals and Voyageur park lodge is starting to move his houses onto the mud in preparation for what should be a fantastic late season perch bite.  We have some monster jumbo perch on Kab and the fishing can be fast and furious!  And don’t forget about our great crappie fishing.  Rumor has it they are biting but you need to explore a little to find them.  Generally the area around Ash River is a great place to start. Snowmobiling and fishing aren’t the only activities to take advantage of in Voyageurs National Park right now.  Snow shoeing, cross country skiing, the park service sledding hill and skating rink are just a few things to keep you busy in our winter wonderland.  We also have winter camping for the brave ones! It is absolutely beautiful out there right now.  Load up the bus and come visit us in Gods country! Gateway General Store

      Does anyone by chance know of any resorts that rent cabins this time of year on any lakes in the faribault area. I love white Russians while sitting in my ice tent. But not so much the drive back through town to a hotel. Oh and of course there's the Busch lattes!

      The ice is still drivable and they've been catching panfish. Shields has really been on fire. Lot's of houses on it though.
