3 posts in this topic

Was just wondering if Tim the Minnesota hunter got a good price for your Yotes you got around Scobey MT. Glad to see somebody doing good the first trip up here. caj

Did we meet you out there? We sure did meet alot of nice people out there...actually enjoyed that about as much as the hunt itself. It's some beautiful country...beautiful ranches, and some very helpful/hospitable people out there.

This was our first serious predator hunt. Our aim was to try to get somewhere where there was good numbers of yotes, and less hunting pressure. We saw a fair number of dogs, and definitely learned alot. We also found there is a definite learning curve to this sport, and we should have taken a few more out.

The dogs we did shoot were not the greatest quality. One had mange, no tail, and probably wouldn't have made it through the winter. A couple more were rubbed pretty good. The nicest one I sniped with a 22-250, hit it in the spine/neck, and about took it's head off. We did shoot a pretty nice fox too. I left the furs with my hunting partners (OMG did they stink...the animals I mean). They had a connection with a trapper in their neighborhood, and were going to pass them off to him to see what he could do with them. I was just pretty much glad to be rid of them.

Overall, we had a great time. We'd like to come back, and probably will. Just wish it wasn't so far away!

Tim Yous should be here right now. It is -20 with a 25 mile an hour wind. Makes the Yotes slow up a little. HA HA. Still no snow. Couple freinds of mine shot 6 the day before yesterday. Was nice and just before the storm rolled in. They were on the move. One had the mange, and the rest were good. Hope to see you out here again. CAJ

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
