duck hunting around the walker area

4 posts in this topic

just incase bow hunting this weekend doesn't pan out i was just wondering if someone could guide me to a lake that would be decent for some ducks i have a boat with a trolling motor so it couldn't be a huge lake. any info would be great otherwise i guess its either bow hunting or grouse. I haven't seen this woods before its my buddies grandparent cabin so hopefully there will be some nice deer otherwise ducks are my second choice.

Not sure exactly where this is again...it's been probably about 18 years or so since I have hunted this lake...

Hart (or heart) lake northwest of Walker. All I remember is we headed north on 371, and for some reason I think we turned on 200 toward laporte. Stream comes into it and out of it, and there is some tall bullrush too..

Also, if you are willing to travel a little bit from walker is Big Rice lake on HWY 6 south of remer. Here, though, you cannot use anything motorized. Oars or paddles here, but lots of places to set up and pull a boat in on.

Hopefully with the colder weather there will be more ducks around. I have not hunted for ducks for about 10 years or so now, just because there are not enough ducks around to make it worth my time. But..I am a little further south and in pothole areas that local ducks seem to use more, so when they fly out, not much more comes in...

Rattlem,

You've got mail. BTW, my suggestion should fit your requirements. It's a small lake.

Whenever I want to find a lake with birds, I simply just gas in my truck and drive around til I find them. Look at maps and take numerous stops to glass and walk into other areas where you can't drive, the results are magical!

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.
