Rochester Game Refuge - Early Goose

6 posts in this topic

So the refuge is legal for early goose. Other than a 2 bag and 100yds from water, any other restrictions apply? City limits legal? Please enlighten if you know more.

Thanks, Coot

That website is helpful, however, the map pertains to a new proposition for land. Can we assume the refuge outside of city limits is fair game?

I guess that is what I am assuming...I don't know the refuge boundaries very well. Your best bet would be to call the DNR directly. I have never goose hunted around Rochester...I have always thought it would be too tough to find fields since all of the guides have them locked up. Maybe this would open some doors for the average joe. smile.gif Maybe I should give it a shot this year!

I won't be in the refuge, but if you get a chance, send them east, I'll be waiting.

      Much different lake from a week ago. Snow on shores and ice in reeds. Water temps were down quite a bit. 42 in main lake 45 in shallow bays. Had a few followers on spinner baits but no hits.

      Went fishing for a couple hours yesterday. Water temp was 48-50. It was a nice day to be out on the water. My arms and neck are a lovely shade of red to prove it. Make sure you're smarter than me and toss a tube of sunscreen in the tackle box before you head out.

      Smoked up 4 for a test and really good!  Quite different than the crappies. Nice and oily and the skin peels right off. Scales are pretty big so a bit of a mess but easy peasy.

      I attended an event Saturday out of Everts. Eye bite was really slow for the 20 boats but a few nice fish were caught. Got into a buncha white bass at the end of the day and it was game on.   Brined some overnight and smoked em up to try them. We thru cranks and swim baits all day.
