I'll be west of cyrus a little ways. Some public land that's really good, and I know a farmer that has CRP bordered on 3 sides by public land and corn on the 4th side. Guess where I'll be hunting...........

Kind of down and out right now. Two hours ago I took my lab out for a bike ride and a neighbor's dog t-boned him while in a full run and bit him in the abdomen (over a two inch tear)...looks like I shot him with a broadhead. Just trying to get a good workout in before opener and now we have to wait til it heals. The wife and I stapled him shut for the night and will get him stitched good tomorrow

Muzzy Sorry to hear that. I know the feeling thought. A few years ago, my pup got hit by a drunk driver at 5 a.m. opener morning. The driver swerved into the yard and hit the dog and drove off. It's a good thing the cops found him before I did......

Not a cool story to hear. I hope they hit the drunk driver hard with fines not that it would help your loss at all.

I'll hopefully get out in a couple of weeks...going to Marshall/Ruthton area...hope there are some birds left!

Good luck to all

Muzzy

I'll be about 100 yards outside of my back door.

Prairie living has at least one perk.

Just to give all you guys heading towards Willmar a heads up. While driving to and from work (Glenwood to Willmar) I have not been seeing any birds. Because I am so friendly I thought I would pass this along and give you guys time to change your plans. I would hate to think of you guys driving all this way just to get a good walk.

Of course if you do head this way and see a few guys hunting over black labs wave it might just be me.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
