Sit at the end of my dock and fire away!

They are around, but not as much in recent years.

Its usually pretty busy on my end of the lake for opener, in the reeds, and next to the muskrat/beaver home.

FLK, READ YOUR REGULATIONS BUD.

TAkING IN OPEN WATER

A person may not take migratory waterfowl, coots, or rails in open water unless

that person is:

a) within a natural growth of vegetation sufficient to partially conceal

the person or boat, or

B) pursuing or shooting wounded birds (while in compliance with the

watercraft restrictions listed below), or

c) on a river or stream that is not more than 100 yards in width.

I AM GUESSING THE END AF ONES DOCK DOES NOT QAULIFY AS NATURAL VEGATATION... crazy.gif

I'll throw a brush pile at the end of the dock. tongue.gif

But in all seriousness, there is public land, in the tall reeds 100 feet from me where guys sit, I'd assume if your out early enough, you would get a spot.

A few Mallards. And TONS of Geese. Lots of Turkeys too. I'd like to talk to the farmer that has the land on the corner of the street to go to french access and kelly access because of all the pheasants. I almost run them over daily.

I knew you were lying! I just played along...not really. I was just about 2 call you! Lucky, you think filling a goose shell with a can of "Great Stuff" would make it float? Thats what I'm tinkering with right now, any ideas?

Somehow, & after 7 cans, they float perfectly fine! Upright & all! My only concern now is that where I trimmed excess foam, that it'll suck up water...hope not frown.gif

Bunt, 1 more ?, I have a boat 2 use now & was wondering, if your on the access dock lookin strait ahead, then to the left all the way down if that is public, so in other words, if I'm not wrong, it would be the SW corner of kelly. Past the last house.

Stop on in after your hunt. Im the 2nd to last dock. With the yapping white husky's in my back yard. Im sure I'll be awake as soon as the sun rises with all the gun shots. I'll have coffee on.

I may dip my boat in Friday night, but I dont want it to get peppered with BB's...actually, might be a good idea to keep my dogs in Friday night also. smile.gif

Sounds good! I remember that dog from ice-fishing, it also had a little begal following him/her around. As soon as we would start grilling they would both be out there, eating hotdogs, ect. with us. grin.gif The huskie was named Shadow, & the begal was Sparky. Good times tongue.gif

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more. 
    • monstermoose78
      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.
