Ice, Ice and more ice! Zero Ducks!

4 posts in this topic

Hunted near Jordan this morning and found my pond to be completely frozen with about an inch of ice! Broke ice and put out a few dekes but did not see many ducks (saw tons of geese though) Hunted the same slough yesterday morning in the snow and the mallards started to pour in as we were loading up the boat to leave. Wishin I could have had just a few more hours on thursday before having to get back to the family. No matter how hard I try to shake it the should've, would've, could've card keeps playing over in my mind.

As for me, I think I will start packing away the floaters tonite and start taking out the field dekes for some late season honker action. It was a duck season full of trials and tribulations, ups and downs, mud due to low water, and most importantly a season full of memories and lessons learned to help carry me through the next ten months. Good luck to all who venture out during the last remaining days. I'll pray for wind!

-Keep on keeping on!

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
