Our opening weekend wasn't great. It basically rained all weekend. We got two woodies on Saturday and two geese on Sunday.

got soaked. . . but ended up filling a 2man limit with 2woodys, 2 greenwings, and 8 bluewings, a flock of 4 pintails buzzed our spread about 10 min to shooting time wich instantly sent me into a frenzy . . i really want a pintail. . . great day except for the Aholes accross the bay that shot at a loan honker that was cupped and commited to our spread, they pumped off about 6 rounds at him from easly over 75 yards away

Did you guys make it out in the heat this past weekend? We had some decent success over the weekend but the weather sucked. Looks like the northern part of the state is getting some snow today so hopefully that will push a few birds our way. I am leaving for North Dakota on Friday and I will let you guys know how I do.

Hey Ikeslayer,

I see you are doing a Rochester goose hunt on 12/15...I am in the same group that will be on that hunt. Did you go last year? If so, how did you do?

Later,

Nate

nate yes i will be on that hunt and i was last year. It was a good time. We killed between 8-12 birds could have been a lot more had wind been different but many times we ended up helping the other group that was in teh field. That won't happen this year cause we have a field all to ourselves. It is a really fun hunt Gotta love a good goose hunt with people state wide right here in roch. See you there. Maybe i will wear a pink hat so you know who i am. ike

i took the day off and made my way down to the swamp today, although it wasnt as windy or cool as the last couple days it was still a great day of duck hunting, me and my bro-in-law filled a 2man limit with a mixed bag of 1 widgon, 1 ringneck, 1 greenwing, 7 mallards (including 2 hens) smirk.gif and 2 pintails,. . . . i always wanted a pintail and got one 2day, although pretty scrappy looking yet i was pretty excited just to drop one, we also had a flock of geese come into our calling and spread and my bro-in-law droped one, i never got a shot off at the honks because of the angle i would have had to shoot right over my partners head

Nate it looks like you are haveing a great year. To bad it ends tuesday. i am again going to guess that you didn't shoot those birds too close to rochester. Are you a river rat?

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
