Waterfowl around McGregor?

15 posts in this topic

Like the title says, I have a cabin just off Lake Minnewawa and would like to know if it worth hunting in that area?

Any info would be great!

Yes, many fowl in the area. Find a rice bed and stay on it. The Rice LAke Federal Refuge just south of McGregor holds many, many migrating ducks each fall - it's a staging area. I'd say peak numbers typically occur around Oct 20-25, given the weather conditions from year to year. Last weekend in October is usually a safe bet for decent numbers though - this is when you see the northern birds coming through - diver city, if you know what I mean.

      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.
