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.

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
