Late Goose

6 posts in this topic

Anybody getting ready for late goose season? I should have a decent layout blind just in time for it.

rattlemup, you been going out anywhere?

I haven't hardly seen ducks when I make it out towards Hutch, but man are there geese in the refuge lands....

I'd like a crack at a few of them before the year is done...

As far as the ducks, is that a recent report? May be out Thursday morning....

Last weekend was dead where I was. Saw one greenhead and that was it. Pathetic.

Anybody have recent honker success? Are the geese building up with low river levels?

I dont think it is looking too good for Hutchinson area this year for holding birds with the low river water levels.

I drove by Otter and Campbell today and saw maybe 1000 birds. And most of the water was froze. Not good if you ask me. Hopefully they keep some water open.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
