BLUEBILL,

FLK AND I PLAN ON GOING SATURDAY A.M IN SEARCH OF A FEW DIVERS. ARE THERE RESPECTABLE NUMBERS AROUND YET? I THOUGHTI SEEN A FEW FLOCKS OF RINGS LAST WEEKEND AND FOR SURE 3 REDHEADS THAT FLARED AT THE LAST SECOND. I BET I HAVEN'T HUNTED WATERFOWL IN ABOUT 10 YEARS BUT LOVE TO SHOOT DIVERS OVER OPENWATER. I KNOW HE HAS NEVER DONE IT . AND THAT IS PULLING ME BACK INTO THE SPORT. IT SICKENS ME TO THINK OF WHAT I SOLD ALL MY GEAR FOR AND HOW LONG IT TOOK ME TO BUILD IT UP. NOW I WAN'T TO GET BACK IN AND IT'LL COST ME A FORTUNE TO GET BACK TO WHERE I WAS. I NO LONGER OWN A GUN LARGER THAN 20 GA. SO IT WILL BE CHALLENGING TO SHOOT A 20 OVER DECOYS. PROBALLY GONNA GO GLASS A FEW LAKES AFTER WORK TOMORROW.

bluebill,

thanks for the info, went scouting friday saw a few and set up in the area saturday a.m, seen lots birds, but few would decoy, they would pass 2 or three times before landing in the middle of the lake. First duck was taken at about 8:30, a good hour and a half of constant action just out past the deaks before anything committed.

my party of three ended up with 4 BILLS 2 REDHEADSon saturday (pic in waterfowl photo thread) 1 CAN & a GADWALL on Sunday . I will likley try again this weekend.

may have to take you up on that , the boat I used this weekend was borrowed from a good friend. as foolish as it was, I sold my waterfowl rig about 10 years ago for a high performance bass rig. at a price that almost makes we queezy. Now I think how long it will take me to build it up again. and it's a little discouraging confused.gif

I was thinking we might be able to persaude the grand parents into trading in your 14' footer v hull for a 16' mod/v John. as it would be a better rig for ya. and also double as a hunting rig. grin.gif ya see I'll by the beer you make sure he's home and we'll get him hammered and pop the question!!! as long as its for you he'll bite guaranteed

      with the current weather and the forcast for next week, we should have great ice by next weekend. be safe out there this weekend, ice just took hold on smaller lakes, the wind has kept things uneven.

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!

      ok, but waste not want not is how I was raised.  I also know what you mean by thinning the heard!

      Has anybody gotten a look at area lakes? Any of them locked up yet ? A buddy said he seen a couple guys a little ways out on Bakers Bay and a couple guys on Eagle. Seems a little crazy to me. There can't be much more than an inch or two. Maybe a little more on Eagle since its shallower.
