GOOSE HUNTING IN ROCHESTER

6 posts in this topic

I along with my 2sons and 3 good friends went down to Rochester this morning for a goose hunt. To say the least, we had a blast.Lots of birds flying all day with only about 1/2 hour of quite time. The birds started flying about 9 and by 3 we were filled out and heading home. The day went to fast. Maybe ice fishing will be as good tomarrow.

To you go through a guide service to do that? The few times I have checked into it, Rochester is pretty locked up unless you are willing to pay?

Yea, it does seem that way. I just can not see spending $75 for two geese.

I go through a guide service that I have used for the last 10 years or so.He has guided and nonguided areas that he uses. The nonguided hunt runs 40$ for the whole day. You bring your own decoys,heater and do your own setup. He has pails or chairs in the pits. If you want more info,contact me at ewillinger@comcast.net

$75 for the day seems pretty cheap for me as someone who has none of the gear other than my 870 and the cold weather duds. I mostly bow hunt for deer and will get out for ducks and geese once a year max if I get invited along with someone. Any recommendations on full-service outfitters in the Rochester area? I may have to give it a try with some buddies sometime.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
