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.

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
