November trips

4 posts in this topic

I was sitting in the local watering hole the other day talking to a couple of guys from the twin cities that were in the area chasing roosters. Nice fellas. They told me they were planning on coming back in November when things were a tad bit cooler. I mentioned the dates they were talking about were during deer season and their jaws dropped. That's no big deal for some people and a huge deal for others.

Slug season for us is Nov 3-4, and Nov 10-13. If you are planning on coming out to chase roosters these are 2 weekends you should be aware of. There will be a lot of people out hunting these 2 weekends. From reading the forums I know there are a lot of people planning trips to SW MN to chase roosters. Come on out, but if you plan your trip during deer hunting be prepared for a lot of people and slugs flying everywhere. It can't be stressed enough that if you plan on hunting these weekends you should be in orange from head to toe. Paint your face orange, wear orange gloves, fly an orange flag, paint your truck orange, put an orange vest on your dog, wrap your gun in orange tape, etc. Let's all have a good time and stay safe at the same time.

I think you have to be nuts to go pheasant hunting during deer season on public land. I sure wouldn't do it.

I would have to agree with BG. I hunt at least one day each weekend (also deer hunt up nort) but I totally avoid hunting pheasants during deer season. It's a good time to hit Mille Lacs or the game farm.

I'm not saying don't come out. I'm saying if you do come out to be ready for deer hunters too, and be safe.

      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.
