does anyone have some good suggestions for where to hunt in the Faribault/Lonsdale area? I'm thinkin some kind of medium sized water. I would appreciate any advice you may have.

Thanks,

All of the spots that I have looked at have had not ducks on them for days now. I have been on Circle lake, Sanborn lake and twin lakes. Don't know where they are but hope that some more come through before the end of the season. Good luck, I guess ya really never know from one day to the next what you will find. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Thanks Jim, I'm hoping tomorrow's NW winds will bring some new ducks in the area. I'm not really familiar with the area but I'll probably be out somewhere around there on Saturday AM. Do you know anything about Shieldsville Lake.

I have never hunted Shieldsville. I have a question though, if you go out from the landing and off to the left is there a waterway from the lake to that slough back there? I have always wanted to try that but not sure that you can get there from here if ya know what I mean. Up until this past weekend I have been getting 1 to 3 ducks each time I went out. Only saw one duck this weekend and it had no intention of coming anywhere close to where I was. Have a good one! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

What do you guys think about Rice Lake off of Highway 10? what are the water levels like? Hey FrenchLakeKid you hunt around that area, do you have any suggestions?

I hunt west of town, mostly geese & puddle ducks, but the last few weeks have been diver hunting with luckycrank. Almost any bigger body of water with shoreline cover, you should be good wink.gif

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir
    • monstermoose78
      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack

      Tried to buy it last Friday and they were not available. System was down/messed up
