Deer are flocking in!!

3 posts in this topic

Yesterday morning I did my normal weekend routine of grabbing a cup of coffee and watching and counting the deer as they leave my five acre corn plot, yesterdays count was 28 deer!!! Four of them were bucks - a spike, two small eight points, and one real nice eight point - out beyond the ears!!! Hopefully he'll survive the cars and coyotes!! And they nicely paraded by at 150 yards for good spotting scope viewing. Also counted 12 pheasants in one plot and 26 in another plot.

This is the time of the year that really makes the time and $$$ spent on food plots worth it!!! Walked thru the corn later on Sunday and theres quite a bit left, hopefully it will last thru Feb and the worst of the cold weather.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
