9 posts in this topic

Got a really good field to hunt for this weekend. only problem its a wide open alfalfa with a 20 yard wide stretch of black dirt down the center. thats where the geese been sitting in the mornings. any ideas of a blind to make from scratch or tarps to lay in the alfalfa of field.

Wear dark/black clothing and "mud" yourself up and just lay in the tilled dirt. Unless you have acess to some green fake grass that you can lay over yourself. I think blending into the dirt will be easier though.

Are you hunting in the watertown area by chance? Doubtful, but I know of a field out this way with that same strange 20 feet plowed through the middle.

We've had similar situations, if possible and allowable by the farmer, set the dekes in the mud, camo up and sit in the alfafla. I like to pull some of the alfalfa cover myself with it to break up my outline.

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
