Saturday morning, the first shot was fired almost 20 minutes after legal. We stayed for almost 2 hours and saw less than 2 dozen ducks TOTAL! We got the redhead that was the only duck that came with-in 200 yards of us. There wasn't a box of shells fired ANYWHERE with-in hearing distance of the flowage. No ducks, weather forecast of the same above average temps and MEA weekend with the big push of tourists...a good weekend to stay home and get a few things done and score some points with "the boss".

Thanks for the replies guys! We will still probably give it a shot. Last year we also hunted Little Cut Foot and did really well. Anyone been out there? I just wish these cooler temps would push some newer birds into the area. I hunt mostly Southern MN and there are not a lot of birds around right now, but we are shootong ringnecks down here (A little early I think). Anyways, thanks again for the help and good luck the rest of the season.

Anybody seeing any more ducks? Not just on the third river but around the area in general? Thinking about hunting this weekend. Thanks.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
