Field Bling ideas

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.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
