My daughter have shot many ducks and several geese with her 870 20 gauge with 3" Federal #3 & #2 steel shot. Keep the shots at a reasonable distance and the fowl will not know they were shot with a 20 instead of a 12. laugh.gif

Carefully shoot at reasonable ranges and you'll do fine. I have taken many ducks with a twenty. But,

I am really puzzled by your statement that your 12-guage "blew out a barrel shooting trap." Jeeeze, a Beretta? Seems sorta unusual. Have you contacted them about that? What happened? confused.gif

I shot my rem 870 20 ga. for waterfowl a little bit last year, and I used 3" Kent Fasteel #2 and #3. It got the job done on a few longer range geese and was very consistent with ducks and pheasants at close range.

Hey B'shooter, thats mighty fine shootin'!! Let us know how the blown barrel situation works out please. Did it just go BOOOOOM and split? Were you shooting handloads? I'm sure the factory people are going to be very seriously interested in the incident. grin.gif

      X2 for the big minnow net.  I got mine at Wally world or FF for $5.  Bend the wire frame to fit.

      You posted this on Friday so I don't know if by "next Saturday" you meant the 14th or this coming Saturday the 21st.    Osakis might be worth a look. Perhaps the Alex chain (Victoria, Geneva, LeHomme Dieu, Carlos, Darling.

      I agree. Completely careless! My uncle could have died...  It broke though he said the ice was to the hood of the truck. He crawled out the window... The window was level to the ice.... He stood up turned around and he said "All I could see was the cab. I watched it for about ten seconds and then it sank." He is extremely lucky to be alive. He still likes ice fishing but he walks on now.

      Fished 2 1/2 weeks solid for NP, and panfish.  Found lots of bites on larger suckers, but almost all were dropped.  Gold and silver shiners were preferred by all sizes.  Usually get the bigger ones on 4-8 suckers.

      I can't tell if it has a second dorsal fin or not based on those pictures, it could be laid down onto the back. But from the looks of it to me, I think its a Brook Silverside. We sample these in central MN streams and the Mississippi River. If you were in Wright County, definitely within its known range. Just a thought based on the picture
