Tuesday Morning Hunt

10 posts in this topic

Had a great little hunt today! While I was sitting in my tree stand on Sunday night I noticed ducks piling into a tiny pot hole off in the distance. It was a nice change to actually drive in and even better we only needed 2 dz dekes. (I actually had time to drink my coffee this morning!) Here are a few pics from the morning..

The partial spread..

As a group, we're less trainable than dogs. Instead of staying in our blinds, we always end up standing around (goofing off) and then, "Oh $@it! Ducks right on top of us!" Here's TJ diving into his blind..

And finally, the ducks. We are also mathematically challenged 17 greenheads, 2 hens. Thought we counted 18 green, but only had 17. One short.

I'm going to assume they had four guys...three in the photo, and one taking the photo...

South Dakota bag limit is five...one of which can be a hen...so four guys can get 20 mallards, which can include four hens.

This person’s location says he is from SD where the daily bag limit is FIVE mallards (only one of which may be a hen). Looks like they are inside the limits and had a great hunt. I wish I could get out to even get one bird - any bird. The wife has suspended my season by being due to have our second baby any day. I wonder if she will let me out after she has the baby.

Rost I see that you use the shells in shallow water. Does that work pretty well?

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
