Tuesday morning we got a late start to mille lacs for a day of fishing and of course we brought the camo, waders and guns the perch werent co-operating and just as that little cold front moved in around 1:30 we stared seeing ducks so we stashed the boat in to the weeds and set a few decoys out and the fun began we werent even out of the decoys and two drake mallards came right in and almost dropped on our heads, instead they landed in the weeds about 65 yards up and we pursued them,jumped them and two green heads down.As we standing there we heard a little splash and my buddy said I hope that wasnt my phone and he looked and it wasnt it was his trigger assembly the pin fell out a the trigger assembly was laying on the bottom of the lake about 3 foot water. He found the trigger assembly but not the pin so took a pencil reed and stuck in the hole and bent it over and it worked I thought it wasnt the safest thing to do but he still shot ducks. We sarted back to the decoys when five ringbills buzzed us they came around again and we plucked three out of the sky this all happened before 2:30 then a couple more mallards about a 1/2 hour later. waited for more to come and we saw a lot of birds fly around then about 4:00 we had three buffle heads come in and we got all three. a couple more mallards flew by but just not in range. We ended up with 10 ducks and no perch and one wicked boat ride across the bay 4-5 foot swells but that was worth every drop of water that hit us in the face. can't wait to the catails.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.
