4 posts in this topic

I'm looking forward to hunt the late season although I have'nt had much luck just wondering if anyone has done well after all the hunting pressure from firearms. Im yet to see a buck in the late season just some does.

Standing corn is where I am headed about the middle of Dec. Have seen alot of deer at this time but not many trophy's. Good way to fill a bonus tag. Find the food and you will find deer.

I would agree with Bill, looking for deer after the rut will include the food sources. After these bucks have run the rut and not eaten much, they will need to eat alot of food to replace any fat they have lost from the rut to get through the winter.

Food,food,food.

No corn to hunt around here. I mainly focus on the thick stuff on the edge of clear cuts but I really could use some snow to find out where they are moving. I've found a couple of sheds that are 60 plus inches in the last couple of years around a couple clear cuts. I'm trying to focus on them and hope I can figure out where the big ones hide.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.

        Good for him holding that big pig.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
