Thank heavens, a gentleman!

Howdy,

A buddy and I were duck hunting out by Canby, and blanked. Bad day.

We went to the truck to change out of waders for boots and vest when another vehicle pulled up. The driver came over and started talking, asking us if we were duck hunting or pheasant hunting.

We explained we were done duck hunting and planning on going after roosters. He honored us the field and chatted some more about the birds and the day and wished us luck then drove off!

That was about the classiest move I've seen in a long time hunting public lands.

He said he and the other person only pheasant hunt, so maybe you're on here. Thanks for being top notch, it made me and my buddy's day. I hope you found the birds and whatever else you were looking for in life that day. Seems like good wishes could not be bestowed on a better gent.

Very best,

Lanyard

That WAS classy!!!

I had a case last year where I was hunting a small management area, 65 acres, had been hunting for about 1/2 hour, when I looked up and saw another hunter that had parked in the ditch to cut me off from a cornfield on the edge, then he proceeded to walk the line. At first I gave him the benefit of the doubt, maybe he didn't see my truck or me, then when I got back to my truck I could see his truck easily. He just wanted to walk that line and to heck with common curtesy. To top it off, as I was watering the dogs he came driving by and talked to me, and then took offense when I told him how classless he was. That area had literally thousands of acres of public land within two miles but he was doing the 'me first' thing and cutting me off. And regretfully you see a lot of that on public hunting areas. Once you get past opening day, if someone else is hunting an area, unless its huge, go find somewhere else!!!

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
