Near watertown 10-31---11-02 very tough. Ducks are not sitting on public water. Few fields out so the # of fields to hunt are small. Tough to get permission. Should change in the next few days with more birds coming in and more crops getting harvested. More birds and crops out to the north.

Hunted near De Smet, which is about 40-50 south of watertown from Oct 19-28.

We did pretty well. Limited out field hunting mallards every day. Every farmer we ask said it was OK to hunt ducks, but we really expressed that we were duck hunting only.

Here's a satellite tracking program that the Arkansas DNR put a few mallards to study their flights. Kind of interesting. You can see where the mallards are daily and follow their flight tracking.

      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.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .

      The waves have been bigger than i've ever seen the past 3-4 days on Ottertail.  Don't know how that is affecting the walleye bite... but its a mess out here.
