Any Honkers Around???

3 posts in this topic

On an unrelated fishing note...Is anyone seeing any Honkers out there? I am on my way on thursday to do some scouting on our annual trip to a buddies uncles place. Any info on what I can expect will be appreciated.

Thank You In Advance!!!

This spring there seemed to be the usual number of broods around the cabin on Bostic but the broods were very small--several with only 1 gosling. The biggest brood I saw only had 4. I haven't seen any birds the last several weeks and haven't heard any flying over either. I had planned on hunting the early season around the lake but I guess not. There seem to be far fewer around Bemidji than usual too. Looks like I keep the fishin poles close by.

What is the water depth looking like for the up coming waterfowl season on the big lake?

Planning a cast and blast for the last weekend in October. I know last year was pretty shallow in the back waters.

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
