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.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
