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.

      Sorry I forgot to put their phone #.  218-385-3385. Ask for Dan or Bonnie.   Hope this helps.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
