Dude... I know where they are at! They just weren't flying until after sundown, and once they started, holy smokes!!!! Thousands upon thousands of birds. Didn't have the gun with though, just the jigging rod! wink.gif

I just love it when a plan comes together whether it be Hunting, Fishing or a date with a hot chick... blush.gif

We started the morning off with 3 Drakes and 2 hens flying into our Goose spread they hung out until 6:35 and took off just before shooting time, not long after and on my first shot of the morning I smacked a Drake and a Hen "one shot" I knew my partner Rick was mildly annoyed "the look" but we managed 5 more Drakes and a closing Hen which he blamed me for also "grin.gif" 6 Drakes 2 Susy's......

I just cropped the picture to get a better look at the birds that were flying.

Yep done at 7:06 am.... cool.gif

Land owners friends and family have it sewed up for the next week or that could be arranged...

We have access/permisssion to use other fields in the area but the Birds like this field in particular for some reason.

Usually mallars will be flexible if your within 1/8 of a mile maybe 1/4 mile.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
