Marsh Lake action?

5 posts in this topic

Just curious if anyone has been on Marsh? If so, how was the hunting and were there many ducks? I'm going out in the morning and just looking for some last minute confidence. smile.gif

Sorry I didn't have any info to post but I am heading out that way this week to see my parents and do some hunting. Just wondering if you had any luck and if you saw many birds.

For a bluebird day with no wind we did pretty well. It was really slow until about 10am, 1 bluebill and one bufflehead. No mallards showed interest but there were flocks everywhere. Really high though. About 10:15 the mallards started coming back from feeding and there were a few flocks that were really looking to land in the dekes. We wound up with 5 greenheads, 1 bluebill and 1 bufflehead. I personally shot like a first timer. I should have had 2 geese and a couple more greenheads. Oh yeah, I missed the bufflehead as he went north and I missed him again when he came back south. blush.gif My buddy put him down. If I would have gotten him he'd be going on the wall.

If you go don't bail out to early. Stick it out until noon if you can. The mallards went out and back in at all times of the morning. The last two greenheads we shot at 11:45.

Thanks for the info, I never made it out on the water. In this wind I figured being in the field chasing pheasants would be more productive than chasing kayak down the shore while it is blowing away.

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
