Fox line in, part of it anyway...

2 posts in this topic

Well I made it out today and got about 2 dozen sets in. just a few footholds and the rest were snares. I could only set one area out of 4 that I wanted to set because of heavy overflow. With the full moon we have super high tides so there is LOTS of water on the ice in many spots where I wanted to get into. If I could have taken the snowmobile all the way to the spots it would have been no sweat to waterskip, but there is a large cutbank on the edge of the overflow so this is a line i will have to walk to put in. No way was I going to walk through 3 feet of slushy river water when it is 10 below out. Hopefully it will subside quickly. Might get another dozen or two sets in tomorrow.

Feels great to be back out on the line again. I have also spent alot of time looking for sign of a wolf pack fairly close to where I live. They were spotted from the air the other day, but we could not find sign of them since we had a bunch of fresh snow. I will get down there again in a few days and search them out, OR i will get up in the air and find them.

Merry Christmas everyone, and may Santa deliver you full traps in the mornin.

Hey Fish, good to hear from you again. Good to have you back out trapping again. I'm going to have to get a fox line going after xmas too. I can't have you out doing me again. I wish you luck, keep us up to date.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds

          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.
