Just got back from 3 days of hunting the lake:

Friday lots of birds moving, two of us got 3 Reds, 3 Bills, a gad and a ringer. Hunted for only a couple hours before shooting time ended.

Sat: Not very many birds moving, prolly spend 7 hours on the lake, trying several different spots, only got one buffie.

Sunday: Hunted for just a couple hours in the morning. Prolly only saw 30 birds total.

There were a ton of people just about every day, a lot of skyblasting observed.

DNR counts said 16,500 ducks and 4000 geese on the lake- must be sticking to the sanctuary.

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
