Late Season Goose. Where?

4 posts in this topic

Early season was easy to scout. I'm guessing late season will be different as frozen water should concentrate the birds. As a rule, what have you all experienced in the past? Concentrate on area's with rivers or what do you recommend?

If you find open water with a good amount of birds, get there in the morning and follow them to the fields they are using. Right before the open season.

Your best bet will be to find any kind of open water as a starter and then try to find fields that the geese are currently using. Open water could be more difficult to find this year because of the colder weather, most of the lakes and rivers around St. Cloud are froze already. If you can find open water within 1 or 2 miles of a used field you should be sitting pretty good come December 8th.

      Wasn't out but just drove by Locke lake by hasty on 94. There were about 8 people out on the lake. All walked out. Not even ATV's. Best I can give ya.

      Hoping things button up with the colder night time temps later in the week...all the crappies I have been getting lately have been shallow....and I'm talking even on edges of pencil reeds in that 8ft depth.  IMO they are acting like late March panfish, very aggressive and seem to have started the migration towards their spawning grounds.  I'll be out catching crappies even if I have to walk out...who knows...maybe mother nature will throw us a another curveball and it will get real cold again in a couple weeks. Good Luck!
