The Jake is my first bird ever harvested my proudest and the one that anchored the sport. I hunted 2 long spring hunts to get one under my belt. The other pictures are of a few birds harvested after that. This fall was my first hunt for that season. I was able to harvest a big tom with the longest spurs and beard thus far. 1 1/16 inch spurs and 10 ¾ inch beard. I have shot quite a few gobblers with 10 ½ inch beards but was never able to put one over that till this fall. We hunt some public and private land which gets hunted other seasons so it isn’t so private. The birds are educated and wary. Most situations we don’t use decoys, they can pinpoint you well enough without them. Calling is critical at this time of year. Calling just enough to get him interested and then cut him off. Then call every now and again to say I am over here. They come in like a black shadow, heads bobbing and weaving and a tail flash here and there. A light greeting cluck to bring him in the distance.

Man, I can’t wait. I only have a little over 4 months to go yet. frown.gif I hope I get drawn.

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
