Opening Day Rain

5 posts in this topic

Don't know about you guys, but I'm planning for rain. 50% chance of showers where I'm hunting. I've got the parka, but I don't want to overdo it if the temps are in the 60/70's, so I might break out my advantage wetlands rainsuit. The gun is going to need a good oiling if the rain comes.

I'm afraid it could make the hunting miserable. Not the wet part, but keeping the birds grounded.

Anybody else have any other plans or tips for rain?

The silver lining-We could really use the rain to bring a few of the marshes up!

I'd rather have some low clouds and some rain versus skies like we have today.

I dont think rain will ground the ducks. A harddriving rain will, but if its not too much of a down pour, it'll be fine.

      I usually go up north, or stop by my Holiday to grab waxies or some small crappie minnows. But where in the metro can a guy get some small/medium suckers or shiners? I am closer to the south metro and work in Woodbury. I don't think Cabelas or Gander carry them anymore.

      I would also suggest small sucker, I also had good luck with just a crappie minnow on the hook. Depends on the lake really.

      White jig heads with a white tube, if that's not working use a buzz bomb with a sucker head or tail on the treble

      Ok, That's a good update.  I didn't realize all the fish died and I'll probably try and change the lake.  Thanks guys!
