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 have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
