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

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      I'm doing a day trip there on Saturday, will post afterwards. I plan to just fish the big basin area humps and points.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...
