Favorite Grunt Sequence?

8 posts in this topic

Hi All,

Just sitting here contemplating the upcoming weekends and the rut coming into full swing... Started thinking about different grunt sequences and wondered what is your most successful? I have usually used a sequence of 4 grunts with pauses in between each grunt. Has been successful here and there for "cold calling" What do you do?

curious more than anything, and would potentially give me more options for different situations. The growl may be happening this weekend too...

Thanks

Steve

I usually do the same, 3 or 4 grunts maybe 20 min. to half hour between. Now with the rut coming on I will add an estrus bleat or two from a can call also.

3-4 grunts. Usually I mix a couple of short ones (just a puff) in with a half exhale or two. The grunts are still short. Now, I'll start mixing in the can a little bit. If I have a deer not coming in to the grunt, I'll hit the can call a quick 4-5 times. Last year it brought in a deer that otherwise would have walked by me.

When I rattle. I usually grunt, rattle, grunt, rattle, grunt. The rattle sequences are a couple of minutes long and the grunts will vary in tone. I have noticed that there are two different kind of grunts the bucks will make. There is one that sounds like my lohman call. Not very deep, more like an EHHH sound than anything. I have heard the bucks making this when they are chasing the does. And then there is the dominant grunt I can get from my true talker. I here this when they are announcing there presence. I use both during the rattling sequence to immitate two different bucks. Anybody else notice these different types of grunts? Good luck.

I play the "shave & a haircut, two bits"

repeatedly until I'm bludgeoned about the head by another member of my party, then I switch to "mary had a little lamb" and sometimes "we wish you a merry christmas"

it's not for everyone... it's reserved mthod for grunt tube masters.

if you laugh into the tube while performing it's all over... you get the dreaded goose honk... no good.

      Shagawa in Ely has a public beach.  That's the closest to Bear Head that I know of.  You'd have to launch a ways across the lake but you could just motor over to it.

      Sorry for late response.  The Gander in Eden Prairie had quite a few...

      Catfishing is pretty stable right now. The water is getting very low making the north end of Grand Forks begin to get sketchy for travel.  The lack of current has the fish spread out also.  Stay on the move and when you land of fish you should have no trouble catching them.  The best areas have been anywhere you can find more current than the surrounding area.  The middle of the River in mid range holes has also been a good place to look. 
        Bait has changed for me this week with frogs being the hands down number one so far.  Sucker and goldeye have been working too.  I still believe getting bait in front of the fish is is the key more than what the bait is but try it all.   Remember the I-29 Catfish Classic is in just 2 weeks.

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.
