Fake corn

5 posts in this topic

I just bought 6 Green-Head full-body goose dekes, there was 2 plastic corn cobs in the box. What do you guys do with them? I put 1 on a plate & my lil step-sister asked if I put butter on it & then tried to take a bite grin.gif It was great, but seriously what do you guys do with them? Thnx

Seriously? We do what YOU did. Or we try to fool the squirrels with them. Or we use them in fall table decorations. Or for Halloween stuff. Or as training dummies with out Beagles.

Nobody uses them for hunting. They make you look like a dolt and a dork. And it sends most passing ducks into hysterics laughing. wink.gif

My rule is 8 cobs per decoy smirk.gif

One evening in our goose hunting camp, after consuming several malt and hops flavered health drinks, we started talking about fake corn in the decoy spread. It was pointed out that geese don't have the depth of field in their vision to tell size. So, you could make larger corn ears just like they make super-magnum goose decoys. It was suggested that a hollow ear of corn six feet long and four feet in diameter could hide two hunters inside as a blind. But can you imagine the size of the goose decoy you would have to put beside it to make it look realistic?? grin.gif

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.
